I have had basal cell several times. The last time I was diagnosed, the Mohs surgeon said she would have to cut my face in two places (two instances of basal cell) and I would look like I was in a train wreck. I said (to self), forget that! I did research and found Perrin's blend. It worked! Use it as directed and diligently. My dermatologist couldn't believe it.

Mayasarada - The information provided by the company selling this product does not include any reliable scientific data showing that it's effective for use with skin cancers, but it does have a lot of carefully worded phrases to give the impression that it is effective.

As Cary noted, you really need to discuss your concerns and get support from your dermatologist or oncologist. Please note the following information from the Skin Cancer Foundation: Basal cell carcinomas are easily treated in their early stages. The larger the tumor has grown, however, the more extensive the treatment needed. Although this skin cancer seldom spreads, or metastasizes, to vital organs, it can damage surrounding tissue, sometimes causing considerable destruction and disfigurement — and some basal cell carcinomas are more aggressive than others.

Are you able to see a medical professional for treatment? Please let us know. Pat

Hi Mayasarada

Have you asked your oncologist about this? Or your dermatologist? This looks like a retail skin product, and because you have an advanced skin cancer you would be wise to run anything you put on your skin past your doctors to make sure it doesn't interact with anything else you are taking, or have any sort of adverse effect on your skin.

When it comes to cancer treatment, sometimes even the most innocuous sounding products can cause drug interaction, increased sensitivity and that sort of thing. So just to be safe, I would run it by your providers.

Good luck to you.
