    In February 2009, my dermatologist was diagnosed with a basal cell over the upper lip during a skin check by means of a curettage. My doctor referred me to the specialist clinic Hornheide in Münster for postoperative surgery. After careful inspection, Aldara cream was prescribed to be applied 5x / week, 2 days off for 6 weeks. As an alternative to the surgery, I wanted to try it out. On the 5th day of treatment, there was severe swelling, blistering (similar to herpes), generalized malaise and fever throughout the lip area. It was the re-presentation in the clinic and it advised me to pause until it fades away and in the dose 2 days cream, 1 day break continue, otherwise again plan A, the OP. I did it the same way, but was very careful with the cream, just apply it thinly and wash it off thoroughly in the morning. During the whole time I did not feel very well. Also formed on my lip slight crusts, but completely healed after the 6-week treatment. A few days after stopping the Aldara cream I was generally much better. After another four weeks, I had an appointment in the specialist clinic for control. There one was immediately convinced that the basalioma had healed. Nevertheless, we have agreed on a punch biopsy with the result: no more tumor detectable. The hardships finally paid off and I would take them back at any time. Especially since it was a basalioma on the lip. In an operation, a part of the lip red would have been removed. – And now visually nothing is visible.
