I had surgery for sever Actenic Keretosis, recently and now I have two small bumps under the scar. I also got liquid nitrogen treatments and I still have Actenic keretosis. Some of them healed and some didn't. The doctor wants to give me some cream, later, to cover more area, on my face, in December but I'm afraid of the cream. I'm allergic to sunscreen so I have a chemical free sun block with zinc oxide but it hurts when I rubb it on, one place. I don't know how to keep the sun out when I'm driving. I put some clear duck tape on the driver side window. I use alot of aloe vera, anything else?
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.
Since you had actinic keratosis which are directly related to exposure to the sunlight, so it is best to use a sunblock which is non perfumed and with minimum spf 30 atleast half an hour before going out in the sun. You can also cover your face with a thin cotton cloth while going out in the sun or avoid peak sunhours.
