    At the end of week 2 of treatment. 1st week was not bad with only minor redness of the cheeks and misc. spots of redness at affected areas over face. 2nd week has increased pain and redness of the areas being treated. Scaling and burning of the areas being treated is occuring. The treatment seems to be working based on other experiences I have read about.

    Had a spot on my nose so my Dr. gave me this to put on the spot twice a day for two weeks. She told me I could spot treat or do my whole nose which I decided to do. I have discovered that I had quite a few spots on my nose that I didn't know I had. It has not been painful for me other than a sting here or there.
