Hi -

I am on day 4 after applying Picato Gel on my chest for two days..

I blistered days 2 and 3 and most blisters have popped (the biggest ones) while I still have many tiny ones as of this AM I am beginning to peel and have some raw skin.  I itch quit a bit too and feel dry like I need to apply lotion.  Someone sugguested I try Emuaid.  My dermotologist did not suggest any certain creams to used while healing... I have read many use aquafor but that hasn't given me any relief.  Has anyone used Emuaid or other creams? Just looking for comfort and anything that will help heal quicker.  I am going to do my face in a few weeks and I guess practicing on my chest! Thanks for any insight with the pain and healing creams/ointments.

Hi-

I am on day 2 after applying Picato Gel on my chest for two days.

I had the Levulan PDT treatment last year. The redness, burning and itching are very similar.

I had the Levulan PDT treatment at the dermatologist last year. I used these creams on different days to relieve pain, swelling, and burning. 

+Cetaphil Foaming Face Wash Redness-Prone Skin

+Cetaphil Night Moisturizer Redness Relieving

+elta MD skincare Intense Moisturizer

+Aquaphor Healing Advanced Therapy

+CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

I tried each one on different days. Cetaphil, Aquaphor, and CeraVe are sold at most drugstores. Elta MD was available at the Derma's office.
