The main active ingredient of Flonida cream is fluorouracil is considered an antimetabolites type of component that destroys cancer cells and cells which may become cancerous. Flonida Fluorouracil cream widely used in calming such conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. Flonida Fluorouracil cream is also flawlessly used in the treatment of solar or actinic keratoses, a skin condition where years of exposure to UV sunlight rays can cause scaly or crusted skin areas.

Fluorouracil 1%-5% cream is a topical treatment for several types of skin lesion both pre-malignant and malignant. Fluorouracil cream is used to treat actinic keratosis (also known as solar keratosis), a pre-malignant skin lesion characterized 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.

If left untreated keratosis can develop into squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which is a non-melanoma type of malignant skin cancer. Fluorouracil 1%-5% cream is also used to treat basal cell carcinoma (BCC), which is the most common form of skin cancer and although it is malignant (invasive) it is not usually harmful. 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.

Keratoacanthoma is a form of skin cancer that develops from a hair follicle and can be triggered by sun exposure or a minor injury; it appears as a dome-shaped nodule on the skin. These lesions respond to treatment with Fluorouracil cream whereas SCC does not because although it develops from the epidermis it grows down into the deeper skin layers (dermis). Fluorouracil Cream is only used for SCC when no other treatment is possible. Fluorouracil cream is also used to treat Bowen’s disease, which is thought to be an early form of SCC and develops from the epithelium beneath the epidermis. It can occur anywhere on the skin, where it appears as a patch of reddened crusty and scaly skin.
