Calendula has been used since ancient times to promote wound healing and reduce inflammation of irritated skin. Today, it is often seen in use in creams and as a topical aid to treat acne, skin burns, reduce skin inflammation, aid in wound healing and calm irritated skin due to repeated radiation therapy treatments. The current standard of care varies and is often based on anecdotal evidence.
Radiation oncology physicians, nurses and radiation oncology therapists on the front line of patient care are well aware of the benefits of calendula as a plant-based alternative for radiation burn skin care and as an alternative to traditional creams to relieve the effects of radiated skin so patients can better tolerate their treatments.
