A year ago I went to the doctors with what I thought was eczema, he referred me to a dermatologist, They said it was an Ak, but it keeps coming back and now is very painful. This is the 3rd lot of cryotherapy I’d of had which is on Friday! Should I be concerned? I’m 48 with very fair freckled skin! I’ve always worn sunblock and never sunbathe! There is a history of skin cancer in my family.

  1. ugh, I’m sorry that area continues to return and is painful! I would encourage you to discuss your valid concerns with the doctor at your upcoming appointment. I hope they can offer some helpful suggestions to more effectively treat your AK. If you’re comfortable, please let us know how your visit goes. We’ll be thinking of you.
