Hi Dani

Sorry about your dx..Many years ago when I had cheemo ( 20 to be exact!)..It is doable Dani:)

I have terrible dry skin and as a child suffered with impatigo and dermatitis a lot.

So the nurse told me to wash my face with a product made by EGO..called QV Wash. It is soap free and recommended by dermatologists.

If you cannot find that brand there ( I live in Australia)..Go to your pharmacy and ask them for a soap free alternative body and face wash

It may not get soapy as much as ordinary soap does but it really is very effective for your skin and cleans the pores well.I also use the EGO QV skin care.I still use these products today and never used soap on my face for over 20years.

Otherwise ask your oncologist to recommend something. Good luck Dani and I wish you well
