Are you all applying this to large areas of your body?  I have to put it on the tip of my nose for three days, what can I expect from that and how long before it clears up?  Thanks

Most people need to cover a wider area and struggle to apply the small Picato Gel dosage sufficiently.. Is the only affected area you are treating is the tip of your nose . ?. Presume your consultant has suggested this remedy . I have used a Picato programme twice., for my scalp. It is my preferred treatment for skin lesions since it acts the fastest , .It also leaves very smooth unblemished skin on conclusion..I have never experienced the excruciating pain others have suffered .I guess the scalp is a hardened area . Facial application , including nose tips , seems to produce a lot of pain for others.. It is 2 years now and I may go for a 3rd try !. I did use Efudix over a good part of my face , including nose , once. This whole programme took close to a month , and I did experience discomfort and burning , whereas Picato can show great results after 9 or 10 days.

I just started yesterday. I am doing my chest (v neck) area.  I need to do my face as well but worried about healing time for work and decided to my chest first to see how it goes.  I needed to do both anyway. 

I just did second tube (day 2).  It's like a terrible sunburn and bubbling up presumably at the worst areas for me. Feeling itchy and burning this eve and anxious to see how this all pans out..... uncomfortable for sure after second dose. 

I have precancer cells from a biopsy on my nose so I will need to do that next... very nervous to do so for being in public...
