In 2015 I was given Efudix cream for facial AKs. It worked fine and they have now gone.
However I started using it on a large white mole on my forearm. I over-applied it and my whole forearm became weepy and very red and sore before I stopped it. About three days later I developed red rashes behind my knees which spread all over my body apart from face and groin within a week. It was agony and 10 days later all the infected skin died and fell off me like snow.
Dr prescribed creams and gradually the rash has gone but it took over 9 months for the majority to go. It remains now on my lower legs and I keep it at bay using Elocon cream when it starts getting itchy again. Usually every seven days.
Has anyone else suffered an "Efudix overdose" with a similar outcome?
