diprobase comes in 3 forms, cream, lotion and ointment.
It sounds like you have the diprobase ointment which, yes, is like Vaseline. I am using the diprobase cream.
Maybe take the diprobase to your session today and ask one of the nurses. I hope today goes okay for you.

I am having highs and lows, very little sustained energy. My energy is better in the morning. The fatigue is nothing like going through chemo which totally knocked me out.

I used to do that with my E45, they advised me to stop using the aloe vera as I think I was over moisturing and to keep the E45 in the fridge as it would do the same job xxx

I am just dropping by to say I am 12 days on from last rads and benefiting from putting a pot of diprobase cream in the fridge and applying the cream cold. Such a treat, very soothing as the redness peaks. Just in case you haven't already considered this.

Sorry darling but do you mind me asking why are you working full time, do you work for yourself?
If you are emplyed do you have an occupational health service that can make recommendations on your working pattern during rads and the following weeks afterwards.
