day 35 ( day 20 ) post efudix

today is 5 weeks when i started applying efudix and 3 weeks since i stopped using efudix and basically my skin feels back to normal. apart from the obvious pinkness my skin feels nice and smooth and all the skin cancer seems to have been removed. i have been asked by work colleges would i put myself through this experience again i replied no i wouldn't because I've been there. my honest advise to anyone contemplating doing this treatment is do your whole face in one hit and get it over as soon as possible and make sure you spread the cream evenly over your whole face to make sure you never have to go through this experience again. i think if i chose only to do my forehead first then my face i wouldn't completed this process.

day 34 (day 19) post efudix

I have stopped using dermaid and only using cetaphil cream the dermaid was for the itchiness and the cetaphil is a moisturiser

day 33 ( day 18 ) post efudix

today i feel like this process is finally coming to a end. i still have burns around my eyes but the rest of my skin is pink. i find if i get a little sun on my face it reacts straight away with pins and needles feeling so i will have to be very careful in the next few weeks.

day 32 ( day 17 ) post efudix

my skin is slowly returning to normal, it continues to flake and still is itchy but by this time you are very adjusted to itchiness so it doesn't really bother you.

day 30 ( day 16 ) post efudix

face is still healing as you can see where i have been shaving seems to have healed quicker than other parts of my face.this could be from the scraping action on the flaking skin or maybe the skin is tougher where you have hair follicles.

day 29 ( day 15 ) post efudix

as you can see my skin is slowly healing day by day,its a bit like watching grass grow i suppose,but its hard not to look when your applying cream 4 to 5 times daily and also conscious of people starring at you probably thinking you have got severe sunburn.

day 28 (day 14) post efudix

today is 14 days after stopping efudix treatment. recovery is a lot slower than i anticipated but i can see alot of improvement. since i stopped using the efdix cream i have been applying dermaid 1% cream this cream soothes the itchiness after you have washed your face. then once that has dried i then apply cetaphil moisturising cream. this cream just keeps your skin from drying out and cracking resulting in bleeding. i apply cetaphil about 4 to 5 times daily.

day 18 (day 4) post efudix

day 18 and the efudix is still burning. the worst is trying to wash your face. it feels like glass splinters in your face. but things now only can get better and i noticed my skin is feeling alot smoother and i appear to have lost all my wrinkles also. i suppose this must be a bonus for all the pain i have been through.

day 17 (day 3) post efudix

3 days after stopping efudix, using moisturiser about 6 times a Day seems to keep the pain down to just a annoying stinging. when i shower and wash my face it stings a bit like glass splinters in your skin.quite painful but when you dry your face off you get a sudden rush of intense pain until you apply the dermaid which stops the pain within minutes.hopefully this wont go on for to many more days.
