    I am through with the Effudex treatment now for 3 weeks, but have had severe vomiting, Diarrhea, mouth sores on tongue, lips gums. I have used the cream before but not my entire face . I still have pains in my stomach and burning stomach off and on….I am hoping the side effects go away soon. What experiences have other people had with the Effudex cream?

    I hope those side effects are gone very soon. Sure sounds awful! Sorry you’re going through that. We always advise people to share symptoms with their doctor so they can monitor your progress to help you feel better.

    To answer your question, yes, many people in our community have experience with Efudex, but remember everyone reacts differently to different medications.

    Our contributor April has written a lot about using Efudex, including Efudex and Me, The Cold, Hard Truth and Efudex, Nothing Normal About It.

    Another contributor wrote Why I Say No Thank You to Efudex.

    Hope this helps. How often are you checking in for follow-ups with the prescribing doc? -Eileen, Team
