My Dr told me to use twice a day for 21 days. The red blotches & burning is incredible and are all over my entire face except my forehead. I am wondering (on average) how long it may take for your face to look normal again, 2 weeks or longer?
IMO that is a long time to use Efudex and a lot of applications. I've used it a lot but on the face it is truly grueling for me me. Nevertheless I have done it twice a day as you for two weeks and the recovery is fairly rapid - huge improvement within 1 week of stopping .
