hi i have been prescribed efudix for an ak on my cheek. i was give a leaflet which showed some really scary pictures of treatment, of course, when googled its even worse!! I wonder if anyone has used this on only a small patch on their face and if so did their whole face end up being affected as ii have read in some of the stories. has anyone not had any of the adverse side effects that the pictures show?

My face has patches of dry skin on my forehead and on my chin is this cream good on face. And can it be used for vaginal itch or vaginal yeast infection. If it can be used on face and vagina how often should it be used on these areas?

Hello June,

Unfortunately it does seem to be that nearly all users experience the physical changes in their skin. I did do some research on how to best keep the negative portions of treatment to a minimum. These are the best ones I came across.

- Be conservative with your application of the creme, a thin layer works just fine.
- Many people use gloves so as to avoid getting the creme on their fingers as well.
- To prevent further skin aggravation only tap your face with your finger instead of scratching.
- Try to avoid using any sorts of lotion or oils claiming to relieve the burning sensation, often they simply aggrivate the area more. (this includes water)
- Remember to swap between acetaminophen and ibuprofen to treat the pain and inflammation.
- Benedryl has been touted as the best way to get sleepy despite the pain, and some even claim that it helps relieve the itching sensation.

There are a number of other tips if you run across and particular issues that I didn't discuss. I limited my list simply because there are just so many good tips out there that it would be a daunting task to read and remember all of them, these ones were listed among multiple websites and seemed to be more helpful to multiple people rather than being helpful only to the writer of the tips.

I hope this aids you a little and best of luck on your treatment. I wish you the best.
