After Using Efudex For 5 Weeks Can The Skin Recover On It's Own Without Further Creams?

Using a steroid cream to aid recovery sounds like it could prolong the redness that I am hopefully trying to recover from after having it for 5 weeks, and wondered if the skin would repair itself better on it's own.

Hello Peter

This is definitely a question for your doctor or dermatologist to answer. I would say it really depends on what you are using the Efudex to treat.
