      No, it doesn't interfer with the Picato doing its job is my understanding. My derm is who told me told me t start appying after the 1st day and it does not hinder the Picato working.  I applied Picato and waiting 10 hours. After washing thatis whey I applied Biafine.  The did second treatment later than evening... waited 10 hours and washed and applied again. I didn't use along with Picato. Only after 10 ho...

          Yes, I questioned my derm about the two inch square recommendation and he told me to do whole face for max benefit. I am not suprised... as I knew it was coming  given I had done my chest already, just painful and scary none the less...

              The vaseline around the eyes is such a great tip!  I will definitely to that.  My concern with face was I have spot on my nose they biopsied and for sure is AK and am worried b/c it is so close to my eyes. Vaseline makes we feel better if that blocks it from spreading accidently! I am on day 9 of my chest and will do my face next week. Also my derm does a check up at day 10. I am going tomorrow for my chest...

                  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 ...
