Avoid Common Errors With Meds for Skin Lesions Caused by the Sun

You're in a prime position to prevent mix-ups with meds for "actinic keratosis"...rough, scaly skin lesions due to chronic sun exposure.

Actinic keratosis is one of the most common reasons patients see a dermatologist...and it can progress to skin cancer.

5-fluorouracil (5-FU) 5% cream (Efudex) is often tried first for multiple lesions. It's applied BID for 2 to 4 weeks...and costs about $40/course.
