Has anyone used Efudex on their head? I'm interested in any side effects on hair deterioration or loss.

Hello Hoody,

Reportedly this will be determined by the amount of efudex that you need to apply. If applied topically then the medicine will not be absorbed into the bloodstream and thus will not cause hair loss like other forms of chemotherapy treatment. If it is necessary to apply enough cream that it will absorb into the blood stream then you will start to experience typical symptoms associated with chemotherapy such as nasuea, vomiting, hair loss etc. Below is a link to the source of my information.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you would like to know anything else regarding this medication.

Re: Kevin (# 1)

Thanks so much Kevin. Will be a 14 light topical application and hopefully very little absorbed into the bloodstream. Think I’ll stop application once blistering or open sores appear. Is simply to rid solar keratosis spots

Cheers again

My spouse is using Efudex on the scalp, and tends to pick at the areas. What will this do to the treated area?
