Default skin cancer, keratoses and sun damage

My husband made me go see a dermatologist who is telling me I have pre cancer spots-keratoses on my face and I have to use this awful carac chemotherapy cream to make them go away. it will make my face get red and itchy and blotchy for 2 weeks. then sunscreen forever. what a drag. I LOVE the sun!!! this sucks but I'm glad I don't have melanoma...could be worse...anyone have experience with this stuff? i am planning to start using it on sept 28--there is a party that weekend but it shouldnt make me ugly for another week or so. many horrendous experiences on the skin cancer sites. another friend just had half her nose and cheek removed bc of skin ca so this is serious s--t....
