      It definitely made me feel "off" but I didn't realize how much until I finished the treatments and then I suddenly felt like myself again.

        Candy, What your doctor said is true although I find that even after years of use whenever I apply it and wherever I apply it I get a reaction.  I assume I still have damage in those areas but it does seem to react no matter what on my face.  Other areas not as much.

          Efudex spreads very easily.  I noticed if I even touch a place on my face and then another not with Efudex it will react.  So, regarding towels, just wash your hands throroughly and then wipe with a clean towel.  If your hands are Efudex free then I think you will be fine.  If you touch a towel before washing your hands then I wouldn't re-use it.  You will find it spreads on your face beyond ...

              Hi! I ditto everything redintheface wrote. I too went out during my proceedure and just explained to people that it was a chemotheraphy treatment.  I tried to wear makeup at first but once you get towards the third week you will most likely want to stop that too, I know I did.  Good Luck!

                Hi, My husband is doing his face right now and his doctor had him go two weeks on and two weeks off then two weeks on again.  He healed quite a bit during the two weeks so that might be easier in the long run.  I have never gone over 4 weeks so I can't imagine how hard this is for you! I am not an expert on the stages but if you read enough of the comments on this very long post you will learn a lot about...

                  Estcstkitty, There is no doubt that this process is brutal, especially at your stage. Unfortunately what you are going through is normal.  It sounds like you are at the erosion stage which means you might not need to go the entire 6 weeks but that is your doctor's decision.  Have you seen your doctor since you started the treatment?  You might make an appointment. At night I would use a cold pillow a...

                    This is very interesting.  As a said a while back I have been doing this treatment periodically for over 20 years.  I have had 2 excellent dermatologists and I follow their instructions as to when and how long etc. As you said, afterwards it is like I had new baby skin and it has been this way with my face ever since my first application which was very severe according to my doctor.  I think most of th...

                      Yes!  I have been using it off and on for over 20 years and I always get results whenever I use it on my face and hands.  They say that the damage we see now is from 20 years ago so unless we stayed completely out of the sun I guess there will be move damaged cells to destroy for years to come.  Just my experiene and thoughts.
