I started using Carac cream in mid August on my nose. The cream has found multiple areas now on my cheeks, a few areas on my lower lip (actinic chellitis??), and now is starting up on my forhead. If the areas are bumpy and look like a rash, but not yet scaling over, should I continue applying the cream? How long should I keep using Carac on new breakouts? This is very difficult, and I look awful.
Hi, it would be helpful to know how long you have been applying the cream, and if the breakouts have become more frequent since starting the treatment. I ask because sometimes a person can have allergic reactions to the cream showing symptoms that you are displaying. Treatment can be a long process, there isn't really a definite length of treatment outline, but studies confirm that the skin can sometimes take a month or 2 to heal after stopping the cream! Are the breakout areas inflammed, damaged or have open sores? If so you should discontinue use of the cream. I think you should seek advice from your doctor about this really to put your mind at rest. Sorry i couldn't be of much help
