Brief Answer:
Carac is Fluoruracil

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.
I read carefully your question and I understand your concern.

Carac is Fluoruracil 0.5% cream and is used to treat actinic keratosis.
The other components you are mentioning are not part of that cream. So if it is carac that you are using then you are on the right medicine to use.


Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako
