I recently finished two weeks of treatment on my left foreman and am into week two on my right forearm. I have experienced mild cold and or flu symptoms that started the second day of treatment. I don’t have either a cold or the flu so I think it has to as a result of the cream. Totally bearable just feel sort of run down all the time.
Hi Spete. I just finished using fluorouracil 5% for 2 weeks on my left arm and the v area on my chest and like you I also experienced flu like symptoms with chilling and slight fever that occurred off and on after about 5 days in. I too attributed it to the Fluorouracil. I finished my treatment yesterday and just this evening had another bout of chills and fever. Hoping they will go away now that I am no longer doing treatment.
