For many years, cancer treatments have become more effective, offering patients new perspectives in terms of prognosis, disease progression and quality of life. However, these therapeutic innovations are often accompanied by undesirable effects. 

Dryness, irritation, itching... Some cancer treatments are associated with a wide range of cutaneous side effects affecting the skin, hair and nails. Each effect is highly dependent on the type of therapy used. 
These side effects can be a source of discomfort and significantly alter the quality of life, both physically and psychologically.
