Have been on treatment for arms 1 month - very little pain and working well. On face - in third week of treatment and not sure I can continue. The pain and burning is almost too much. Everyday gets worse, but don't want to stop the healing. Feels like there are millions of ants crawling and biting my skin. Have not really slept in 4 days and thats bad also. Still trying to hang in there.

I took this treatment during a recuperation for an unrelated surgical procedure, knowing I would be confined to my home. I used the medicine for facial redness due to sun exposure over the years. After 10 days, I discontinued the medication, one because my doctor advised me to but also because I could barely stand one more day of discomfort, especially around my lips.

This time I'm using it on my chest in a larger area and have had a big reaction, having oozing spots in less than two weeks, so stopped using as the doctor said to do so. Very red and painful. I'm now using an antibiotic cream to help with ... Show Full Comment

As I continued the process, there was more sun damage than I first realized. There is a tremendous amount of redness with scabs forming over ... Show Full Comment

I'm on my 4th round in 11 years. Was told 1st time to use it 2x day on face as long as I could. After 15 days, I looked like I had a terrible sunburn & bleeding. 2 weeks of healing & I had baby's butt skin on my face & best shave ever. Highly recommend it.
