Carac and aquaphor for actinic keratoses
As long as you don't put the aquaphor on immediately prior to the carac, there shouldn't be a problem unless you develop a vigorous oozing reaction, then you shouldn't use the aquaphor without your doctor's advice.
You can use both carac and aquaphor
You can use both carac and aquaphor but do not use at same time of day. The aquphor will keep carac from penetrating so wash your face before applying the carac. You might want to use carac over night and aquphor in AM or vice vest. Aquaphor will help you feel better and moisten the crusting.
