As others have noted, one must truly plan for the use of this medication - to go underground for threeweeks! You look like and feel like a burn victim during the use time. Some recommened doing one part of the face at a time versus all the affected areas. Get it over with is my recommnedation. It may hurt but the hurt is over versus the extended treatment plan.

I can only describe its use as pure hell. Imagine putting your head in a fire ant nest and you will come close to feelings I've experienced. At times I've been unable to function; driving I've even had to pull over and stop. I could go on, but this is enough for you to get the impression. I'm sure it performs its intended function, but that needs to be on someone besides me!

Some pain and unsightliness aside, I belive this treatment to be working as prescribed. I'm 5 weeks through a 6 week application period. It will be interesting to see my 'new' skin.
