I. To estimate the safety (defined using the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE], version 5.0) of StrataXRT and placebo by assessing gel-associated toxicities among pediatric patients, aged 2-17 undergoing proton cerebrospinal irradiation (CSI) for central nervous system (CNS) tumors.
II. To estimate the efficacy of StrataXRT as a preventative agent for radiation-associated dermatitis among pediatric patients, aged 2-17 undergoing proton CSI for CNS tumors.
I. To explore the relationship between dosing and the efficacy of StrataXRT. II. To explore the relationship between the use of StrataXRT and parent-reported symptom experience, as measured by the Radiation-Induced Skin Reaction Assessment Scale (RISRAS).
III. To explore compliance with the application of treatment as documented in a study log by participants.
Beginning first day of CSI proton radiation therapy, caregivers apply StrataXRT gel to half of the patient's forehead and one ear and placebo to the other half of the forehead and the other ear twice daily (BID) until the last day of radiation therapy.

Experimental: Supportive care (StrataXRT, placebo)
Beginning first day of CSI proton radiation therapy, caregivers apply StrataXRT gel to half of the patient's forehead and one ear and placebo to the other half of the forehead and the other ear BID until the last day of radiation therapy.
Other: Placebo Administration
Other: Questionnaire Administration
Drug: Wound Dressing Material

- Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks ]Graded per Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 5.0. Safety will be summarized with standard summary statistics by adverse event (AE), grade, relation, etc. using the CTCAE 5.0. All summaries will be calculated for each control and experimental forehead and ears.
- StrataXRT as a preventative agent for radiation-associated dermatitis [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks ]To estimate the efficacy of StrataXRT among pediatric patients.
- Dosing of StrataXRT [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks ]
- Parent-reported symptom experience [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks ]Will be measured by the Radiation-Induced Skin Reaction Assessment Scale (RISRAS). The RISRAS Radiation-Induced Skin Reaction Assessment Scale will be summarized by control and experimental ears at each time point (baseline, 5 weekly treatment visits, and at treatment completion visit [last day of radiation therapy]).
- Compliance [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks ]As documented in a study log by participants.
