When I have used this type of medication in the past, as the actinic keratosed are gets reddened and angry looking during the course of treatment, but begins to resolve before treatment period is over. I have finished the regime of 2 wks on, 2 weeks off and 2 weeks on to complete and I still have a huge "Christmas light" on my face...not sure if I have a bigger problem or not? I am putti ...

This is day 13. I am using Zyclara all over my face. I look like I have been battered and burned. My mouth is completely blown up with fever blisters, and my lower jaw aches. The mouth pain is debilitating. I don't know if I can do one more day of treatment. I have used Carac in the past with good results, and no fever blisters.

I wore a hat and reduced my outings for a few weeks. ... Show Full Comment

This is my second go-round with Zyclara, so I had a good idea what to expect from a few years back. In my case, no flu-like symptoms or cold sores (I'm using the Zyclara on my bald pate), none of the lethargy that others seem to experience. But the sores certainly ARE noticeable!
