Use Of Fluorouracil 5% On Your Scalp

Updated



Conversation Starter

LoLo Says:


I read that you should wash the site before application. Are you to wash your hair everyday, twice a day if you apply Fluorouracil 2 x per day? Is it ok to use your regular shampoo.

I understand that use of Fluorouracil cream can spread to areas that may not already show signs of precancerous spots. Has anyone noticed this to happen? How far has it spread, entire scalp?

Please share any experience you have had with treating scalp.
