I am wondering if any one has had to do the effected area as much as or more than three times in one year. I am using on the lips and nose and each time with a 5% twice daily, for 21 days. Each time it blisters, burns, hurts, sheds the skin and clears up. In approximately 3 months late it starts to feels like cold sores and my dermatologist gets me to start over.
I am now finished with my last treatment again and am in the process of healing. I am hopeful this was the last. Has anyone had the same or more sessions with it and What is the alternative to this problem ???
Thanks you in advance for sharing.
I think this support from the many users is terrific,
Am on my third 21 day Efudex stint on my nose and lips this year. How many times can I do that ???
There is a new drug called Picato it works a lot better than effudux. It cost 1000,00 if you have private insurance-.
your doctor has a coupon that youcan get this medicine for 2o.oo Because I have Medicare,not private insurance I have to us that nasty effudux that stings and puts sores all over your face. I feel like a zombie. PS.you can use the card on refills too. (ingenol mebutate)0.015℅,0.05
