I am 65M with several Actinic Keratosis spots on the forehead and cheek area for 5 years. I used a 7.5g pump bottle in the normal pair of 14 day application periods.

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

Doctor did not give advice on how to treat the spots when they appear. Is there a particular way (p ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am 62 years old and fair skinned. I have now completed the second two week application of the drug. My reaction during the first two weeks was much worse than the examples shown of a severe reaction. My entire forehead and the sides of my face were swollen and crusted. Side effects were not too bad with mild dizziness, indigestion, fatigue, joint pain and occasional nose bleeds. The reactio ... Show Full Comment
