... washing after. What are the implications and side effects? Can't find any info. I'm experiencing electric shocks in fingers, at times shooting up my arm
The following is an excerpt from medlineplus.gov:
"Apply fluorouracil cream with a nonmetal applicator, a glove, or your finger. If you apply fluorouracil cream with your finger, be sure to wash your hands well immediately afterwards"
The risks include the skin left unwashed starting to get irritated and then flaking off, which can be especially painful for your fingers since they're used a lot. If nothing has happened and you are now washing well after each application then you should be fine.
