i had a patch of skin frozen last December 2015 one doctor said it was just skin damage, when I went to my follow up this week Monday, the patch looked white , the doctor said that it was bowens , which I didn't know, and that there was still some left, that needed to be frozen again . Anyway I had the edges and the. Middle frozen which was a bit painful . Since then I have just red small spot like things in the blemish no blister like before no oosing or anything just feels a bit sore red a bit weird , I am worried that because it's not like before where I had loads of fluid and bleeding, that it's not worked and I will have to go back again but the doctor sprayed it twice,on Monday , just getting worried as I wondering if this is going to get rid of the remaining skin damage, as I said he didn't have to blast the whole area just some small bits and a area in the middle. I have a white scar from last year. Thanks I hope someone can put my mind at rest.

    Hello Janice

    i have had bowens disease for about 15 years now and I have to have mine blasted with liquid nitrogen every 3 months.  Sometimes I have had about 20 done at the same time,  they come up in a blister and I also have a lot of white marks on my legs.  This is the first time that anybody else apart from me has has bowens disease.  I had to have 2 cut out about a month ago but they were benign thank goodness.  If you want to ask me anything please email me.

      Thanks Brenda   As I said when I had a bit of blasting on Monday with liquid nitrogen there only seems to be small red spot like things now is that normal there doesn't seem to be a big blister like before when I had a large area don't last year, it is just a bit puffy and red no blister or maybe the red spots are blisters , what do you think the area doesn't seem to do anything, maybe because he never done a lot this time, I keep thinking how long does it take for a blister or scabbing to happen ? I keep comparing this to last year when it was bleeding and oozing but I am not getting it this time? Feels a bit sore and red around where he blasted it any information will be appreciated thanks.

      My whole bottom of my legs are like that but yes you are right they look like little red spots.  Have they tried you on any cream I have had various but didn't get on with it very well.

      Hi sorry that your legs are itchy and flaky unfortunately mine are always itchy and flaky.  I have liquid nitrogen treatment every 3 months.  How many do you usually have done at a time ?  How long have you had Bowens?  If you ever want to ask me anything you can always ask me as I have had bowens a long time now.
