Efudix effects increase, day 19

Effects of Fluorouracil after 19 days

More scabbing and dry skin from Efudix

Day 19 on Efudix and more of the same: more scabbing around the bridge of my nose, some more dry skin and the main scab is even worse looking and really itchy. The yellow monster scab was itching really badly in the middle of the night and I caught it with my nail whilst trying to gently scratch it – and it was sore! What’s my skin going to be like when this scab falls off? – looks like it’s going to be tender.

Getting more and more introspective by the day/feeling more and more sorry for myself. When I feel like that, I hit Google and take a look at other users ‘ Efudix blogs.  Just seeing pictures of other people going through the same thing and the effects that the cream has had on them makes me feel a bit better – it at least reassures me that what I’m experiencing is a perfectly normal reaction to Fluorouracil. And really hammers home how lucky I am that I’m only treating my face.

Came across another couple of interesting skin cancer articles today:
