Hi @jnb, welcome. Topical fluorouracil (5-FU) is commonly used to treat skin lesions after surgery for basal cell cancer. The changes you are experiencing, like itching, burning, angry red areas, raised bumps, are also common.
As to your question about whether to apply the cream only to raised scabs or also to flat, brown skin discolorations. I'm not sure. This is a question for your doctor. Are you able to contact them through a patient portal or by phone? Does your insurance help cover the cost of the cream?
