Hello, this poll is directed towards users of topical 5-fluorouracil and other treatments. Are users currently satisfied with the dosage regimen recommended by their doctors or would it be useful to have dosing customized to the individual? For example, it is possible to observe the skin's response to treatment once the regimen has begun, outside the doctor's office and to change the concentration of the application, based on individual user characteristics in order to optimize efficacy and while also optimizing user comfort. Would this provide value above and beyond the current recommended treatment regimens, which involve stopping treatment for 1-3 days if irritation is too pronounced and then recommencing it.

If the question is whether I was satisfied with the guidance given by the doc, the answer is no!
