This is my 3rd time doing a 30 day Carac tx on my whole face and head over the years. The side effects are a pain but bearable. The itching is terrible.

Comment:
Three months ago I had my dermatologist examine a darkened area about the size of a nickel on my right cheek. It had become irritated with red scaly bumps. A biospy was done and report stated it was actinic keratosis...pre-cancerous. I have been using Carac on my entire face for 12 days now. The spot shows no signs of being affected by the treatment but other very tiny spots on my face have turne ... Show Full Comment
