My Dr. didn't give me a lot of details about this medicine except that it will look like a sunburn and peel off. Will appreciate any info anyone has. I am in dishwater a lot at my job and was also wondering about that. Thanks.

I couldn't figure out how to answer suzanne 66 except for this way-new to the forum. I work in a deli, where I am in and out of dishwater many, many times a day. When a customer walks up I have to go-really would not be practical to wear gloves, but could try. Thanks
Yes, you can swim in a pool or soak in a hot tub or Jacuzzi whilst using Fluorouracil. I would suggest applying the cream after and not before the water activity (so as not to wash it off).
Can you wear gloves when washing dishes?
