I have just completed three days ago the two week skin treatment using fluorouracil. As expected I have continued significant burning and itching over my entire face. I am applying cortisone 1% twice daily, but felt I needed to do more to reduce the dryness and burning. I have started to use Vitamin E in addition to the cortisone cream.
