After three biopsies my dermatologist performed Moh’s surgery on two scabby squamous-cell skin bumps on my shins. It took 40 days from the surgery until my scabs fell off. I thought she might then do more biopsies on other bumps and scabs that have popped up on my lower legs over the past year. Instead she has prescribed a what I would call do-it-yourself chemotherapy. I am to use a cream called flourouracil twice a day for four to six weeks. What should I expect as I use it? I’m ten days into the regimen. Angry red areas have grown larger around some bumps. Bumps become more raised and more scabby. They sometimes itch and other times burn. Should I apply the cream only to raised scabs or also to flat, brown skin discolorations? It is expensive, and one tube has been lasting me ten days.
