Sorry this question has not been answered earlier for you.
The cream is usually applied for 3 to 4 weeks.
After about 5 to 10 days it is normal for your skin to become red and irritated. As treatment is continued, sores and crusts may appear. These raw areas result from the destruction of defective skin cells. They are a necessary part of treatment.
It sounds as though you have reached the point to stop. Can you make a quick appointment with your doctor to check progress?
