Efudex erosion stage within a few days???

I've been needing to start another round with efudex and have a question about how quickly I reach the erosion stage. Whenever I use efudex I reach the erosion stage within only 3-4 days. I look like pictures of other people that have been using it for 10 days after only 4-5 days of starting and in 10 days I'm full scab, ooze mode. Anyone else flame up this quickly??? Definitely dreading this. I'm doing my entire face, scalp and neck. 

 Thanks

It always takes me a bit longer.  My skin is very sun damaged and dry. You probably have softer skin and absorb the medicine better.  You are probably finished by now and starting to heal up.  I just started today and have to do a lot of areas so I am starting with my neck and chest.  It is easy to hide that area so it won't be as bad as the face.  Good luck!
