Oh what a mess I am

The Dermatologist has me on a cream called CARAC  to help clear up some of the pre-cancerous spots on my face and scalp.  The freezing method is never very efficacious for me, and the celebrated blue light treatment did nothing.

CARAC works, but it’s a messy business. The places where it is applied get red, inflamed and bloody.  (I look a mess).  

Then they dry out and get so damn itchy, before, in due course the scabs fall off.

The cure is but marginally better than the cause.  If only I had a bit more melanin!

But the messy cure is surely better than full blown skin cancer.
