I've been using the fluorouracil 5% on my forearms as directed for going on a week; i was directed to use it for 14 days yet I haven't had any changes in my skin, no irritations. How long does it take for the skin to become affected with irritation?
I've read that it takes a little longer on your arms than on the face. I didn't really notice the reaction on my face until day 9 of 14. 9 - 21 were pretty rough days but it's just a couple of weeks. Have a good attitude and take photos daily so you can document your progress/improvement.
