Anybody use Efudex cream for skin cancer????
I'm on Week 3.5 of Efudex for squamous cell carcinoma on my nose. It's the "standard" ugly red w/ small patches of scaling or raw. Very attractive. It's on both sides of my nose, across the bridge and into the creases below each nostril.
I'm supposed to use it for 8 weeks and I'm no wimp, but I'm not sure how I'm going to tolerate escalating discomfort. I started taking 2 tylenol every 8 hours to take the edge off.
I live on a farm and need to be outdoors but if the sunlight hits the affected area it's like adding a blow torch to the acid. Applying sunscreen is like using Liquid Fire. Can anyone recommend a kinder, gentler brand? I'm using Neutrogena Dry Touch.
I have a WDW trip May 2--will I be able to tolerate the pool?
Any tips or encouragement from others who have survived are most welcome!
