Dry foot after radiotherapy for Ledderhose

So I finished my treatment for Ledderhose disease just over 2 weeks ago now and one of the things that often happens with this treatment (and not just for those being treated on the foot but pretty much anywhere) is that the area treated starts to dry out. For this I was advised to get some E45 but after by first week of treatment I did not notice any signs of dryness however now after the second week there is a dry circle on my foot. Those who saw the pictures of my foot being tanned after radiotherapy will know that this is not something that photographs particularly well but I have tried. 

I think you can clearly see the outline of the dry skin?
