I have been using Efudex on my face for ten days now. I have four more days to go. My face is extremely itchy and uncomfortable. Can I apply/use Cortisone cream on my face while using the Efudex to alleviate the itching? I don't know if cortisone cream is contraindicated with Efudex. If it is, can anyone recommend anything I can use to alleviate the itching?
I was given cortisone cream to use only after my treatment and I would not recommend using anything other than the Efudex unless you have been told to do so by your dermatologist. You could use cold compresses or an ice pack (wrapped in a cloth) to help with the itching, and tap gently but do not scratch as you do not want to cause an infection. You are almost done so stick it out, but if it’s really intolerable, ask your doctor if you can take Benadryl.
