Picato (pih-KAY-toe) gel as a more convenient topical treatment for actinic keratosis

Reps will promote Picato (pih-KAY-toe) gel as a more convenient topical treatment for actinic keratosis.

Picato (ingenol mebutate) is applied for just 2 or 3 DAYS...compared to several WEEKS to MONTHS for 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), imiquimod (Aldara, etc), or Solaraze (diclofenac).

5-FU, imiquimod, and Picato have similar efficacy for actinic keratosis...and all of them can cause considerable skin inflammation.
