Peel or Cream for Actinic Keratosis after Mohs Surgery?
I had Mohs surgery on November 24, 2009. It was healing nicely and overnight a purple area surfaced in the incision line. It was biopsied. It is actinic keratosis. Doctor wants to freeze next week, but I am concerned if the whole flap is bad and not just the one point in the incision line.
I have had two of ac's frozen in the past two years and then the basal cell removed in November. Should I be getting some sort of peel or cream to stop this before they surface and become something?
I would use Aldara
