Efudix Cream 5% 20g
Efudix Cream 5% 20g is used to treat skin conditions including growths of the skin (keratoses) and some simple skin cancers. It is classed as a topical anti-cancer drug to treat skin conditions caused by aging or exposure to sunlight, before these conditions develop into skin cancer.
Around 3-5 days after Efudix Cream is applied the affected area will become red, followed by blistering, peeling and cracking Š—– at around 11-14 days. This may cause some discomfort, but means that the cream is working. The treated skin will then flake away leaving some redness. The end result is complete healing with no scars.
