Avatar f tn Hi, No I would not diagnose a skin disorder myself either, I did see a dermatologist over a month ago, she did a biopsy on the first lesion and it came back positive for BCC. The prescription she gave me is for Imiquimod Cream 5%, it worked great with my first lesion, which is very small right now and slowly fading.
Avatar m tn Imiquimod-induced FasR-mediated apoptosis, may contribute to the effectiveness of imiquimod 5% cream for the treatment of BCC (8). The initial study of topical imiquimod 5% cream for nodular and superficial BCC was a vehicle-controlled, 16-week, dose-ranging study (9). The histologically confirmed cure rate varied depending upon the frequency of dosing, and the overall response rate was 83% (20/24) in the imiquimod-treated group and 9% (1/11) in the vehicle treated group.
