    After care for Efudex

     I've got 2 more weeks to go on a 6 week treatment of Efudex on my chest.  The area is so painful!  My question is: when I'm done with the 6 weeks, what can I use on the area?  Neosporin?  Polysporin?  Vitamin E oil?  It looks like someone clawed my upper chest, red raw and weeping in some spots.

    Please let me know asap.

    Hi Shelly,


    Thank you for your question. I would strongly suggest that you speak with your doctor about what you're experiencing. He or she may not want you to continue treatment for the next two weeks if your symptoms are this severe. Though online websites are helpful for finding information in certain circumstances, nothing can replace discussing what's going on with your doctor. He or she knows your individual case and is the best one to help you with such serious concerns.


    Best of luck to you!
