Thanks for sharing your experience with this drug.
The label says “Do not apply to good skin.”
It’s helpful to know that you saw a response beyond the area you originally treated. The label and the inserted drug facts that came with the tube do not mention that.
This drug is not for the weak. It takes fortitude to apply a substance that is going to make you worse before you get better!

@jnb The drug goes after an area that needs help, even when it is not visible to our naked eye. That is what had freaked me out the first time I used it! My dermatologst's PA seemed amused by my anxiety, I was not. It was on my face and I had to really do a bit of coverup to go to work!

You could ask your pharmacist for a generic, if one is available. I know the last tube I got was over $100 out of my pocket.

Hope to hear from you, giving me good news in the not too distant future. You reminded me I need to get my tube out and treat some areas. The PA I see at my current dermatologist says she I should not use any topical chemo while I am on systemic chemo for cancer, but my oncologist says, "It's fine to use." Think I will go with his opinion.
