I'm pretty active, and often shower in the morning before work, and then again in the middle of the... day after exercising, which leads to two questions: 1) Do I reapply the fluorouracil after each shower? 2) What's the best way to avoid getting the cream in my eyes when I'm exercising and sweating?

The cream should be applied twice a day - unless directed otherwise.
Apply it morning (after showering) and evening (after cleansing & drying) carefully avoiding the eye area.
There is not much you can do to avoid the cream getting in your eyes through sweating - except to cut down (on the exercise) while using the cream.
