Flonida Fluorouracil 5% Cream is used to treat actinic keratosis (also known as solar keratosis), a pre-malignant skin lesion characterised by thick raised scaly patches of skin caused by too much exposure to the sun. This is usually found in fair-skinned people on exposed parts of the body; when associated with aging this is known as senile keratosis. Keratosis refers to the overproduction of keratin, which is a fibrous structural protein in the outer skin layers (epidermis) and can also be caused by arsenic, a natural mineral used in industrial or agricultural compounds (arsenical keratosis); this form of keratosis can be found on the palms of the hands of soles of the feet.

BCC develops in the basal layer of the epidermis, is found mainly on the head, neck and other exposed areas in skin of fair-skinned people and is caused by excess sun exposure or repeated sunburn. BCC grows slowly and varies in appearance from small translucent nodules to larger brown, reddened or thickened patches of skin and can form ulcers and bleed easily.
