Or do you leave the cream on and apply the moisturizer over it?
No, definitely not otherwise you risk removing some of the remaining medication that has yet to be absorbed.
Fluorouracil is a topical cream used to treat simple skin cancers and solar keratosis caused by the sun. It kills the abnormal skin cells and normal skin grows back. As you use fluorouracil, the area of skin you are treating will become red, itchy, swollen and sore. The top layer of skin may bleed, blister and peel before it begins to heal. This reaction can be quite severe, but it is only temporary.
