am on day 18 of treatment, there is a lot more damege to my skin that I had thought, my face is completely covered with red blotches,the cream seems to be doing its job but I hope this clears up soon, I am very embarrassed by my appearance, I will stick with it though because from what other users have said the end result is worth the process

Comment:
I just completed two weeks of twice daily full face application. First week my face just became red and blotchy. The second week it became irritated and sore. First week after treatment my face became like a bad sunburn on all the red spots. Second week it all peeled off and soon became very clear.The treatment is much like nitrogen treatment. A little uncomfortable and you look bad for awhile ... Show Full Comment

Thanks to the other reviewers...burning and redness all over my face but no burning or redness on hands when used the same...wonder why? Previously used for squamous cell on hand.. very effective for that for me.

Comment:
treatment involved some oozing and unsightly scalp areas. itching and pain can be controlled by applying FLUOCINOLONE ACETONIDE TOPICAL SOLUTION USP, 0.01% ten minutes or so after Fluorouracil. after a three week regime, my scalp is healing nicely.
