When to stop?

I am using Efudex and have used it before but I am never sure when to stop. My doctor said to use it once a day for three weeks. It seems certain spots get red and some scab up but after I stop using the Efudex, the spots don't really go completely away.

Re: When to stop?

I hadn't heard of this before, but when I go out to their web site, it indicates the product is to be used twice a day for several weeks. What does your doctor say when you have completed the course of treatment?

Re: When to stop?

My doctor's instructions are to use Efudex once a day for three weeks. I don't feel I am using it long enough because I have been left with red spots on my face in the areas that I put the cream on.
