NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiodermatitis, also known as radiation dermatitis, is a significant symptom caused by radiation therapy used in treating cancer as well as exposure to radiation during nuclear disasters.

Radiodermatitis may be acute or chronic and encompasses localized erythema, skin shedding (desquamation), hair loss (epilation), fibrosis, necrosis, and other similar conditions.

Radiodermatitis can also cause interruption in or cessation of treatment, depending on the severity of reaction.
