Sun damage on scalp

I went to my GP because of the red patches which is sun damage on my scalp. They became itchy and sore. As I am bald I always wear a cap when I am out but I believe the damage was done years ago when I got sunburnt once.? I am using Fluorouracil every other day as the GP prescribed for 8 weeks. Has anyone used this and does it work in destroying the cells?

I have sun damage from early days abroad in Africa. I saw a skin specialist to have a suspect lump removed from my thighs. he also saw my head & said loads of sun damage there I will give you something for it. I got PICATO; 3 tiny tubes. 1 a day for 3 days. my wife put a tiny drop on each damaged bit. they started blistering up straight away. making me hide for a few days. all the damage disappeared leaving nice new skin it its place. extremely amazing but I was told extremely expensive. But I am a new 74 year old now!

That sounds good stuff. If what I am using doesnt work I will ask my GP about PICATO. My problem is that I live on my own and I find it difficult putting the cream on the right places on my head. One spot is easy to see but the others at the back of my head are difficult.

You would have to have help once a day to apply it!

Have you tried using a mirror behind you while looking in a mirror? I have used that to see patches on my back that I need to put ointment on!
