Photo and Haiku for 19 February 2023

5-FU lip cream

Chemotherapy treatment

No selfie photos

On 01 February, my dermatologist prescribed a chemotherapy cream called 5-fluorouracil or 5-FU to treat solar keratoses and possible basal cell skin cancer of my lips.  I severely sunburned my lips several times the last two years while out hiking in the mountains. I applied the cream for two weeks.  The last day of application was Monday evening the 13th. The lips look horrible and gross – so no photos.
