Common Questions and Answers about Aldara actinic keratosis


Avatar f tn I don't think the Aldara will affect the biopsy diagnosis. You are right that Aldara would have caused an actinic keratosis to react. I guess that's why your dermatologist wants to get a definitive biopsy diagnosis. But again, the biopsy should tell you what you need to know. Take care. Dr.
Avatar m tn Hello, Aldara cream or Imiquimod is used for treatment of actinic keratosis, warts and topical treatment of biopsy-confirmed, primary superficial basal cell carcinoma (sBCC) in immunocompetent adults. It is still not confirmed whether your mole is a malignancy or a mole. I would suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist. Confirmation can be done by excisional biopsy with narrow margins.

Avatar n tn Its use is approved for basal cell skin cancer and actinic keratosis, a precursor condition of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. At present, the best evidence for the use of imiquimod for melanoma or lentigo maligna are only case reports. While the results of these studies are promising, only a few patients have been studied and the quality of evidence is weak. Common side effects to Aldara involve skin reactions in the area where it was applied.
Avatar f tn Hi Doctor, I am a 47 y/o female with a history of dysplastic nevi, melanoma in-situ (on chest), multiple basal cell and actinic keratosis. My question is about a lesion that appeared on my chest about 6 weeks ago that I showed to my dermatologist stating I thought it was another basal cell and should I treat it with Aldara like the others on my chest that have been popping up alot since January of this year. She agreed that I do that. It started out about 5.5mm with a crusty scab in it.
Avatar f tn Rockoff, Sorry, but I was wondering if I usually have a reaction to Aldara on my basal cells, would a lesion that popped up as a squamous cell and not an actinic keratosis react to two weeks treatment of Aldara?
Avatar n tn Imiquimod (Aldara), a topical immunostimulant used for the treatment of genital warts (USFDA approved indication) but is also used to treat actinic keratoses. Actinic keratosis is a skin condition characterized by rough, scaly patches on the skin of face, lips, ears, back of your hands, forearms, scalp and neck. The usual cause is overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. This is usually a precancerous condition, which can develop into skin cancer.

9777394 tn?1468994722 First, have you ever used Aldara or Zyclara for genital warts or actinic keratosis? I have spoken to a whole lot of people who have suffered severely debilitating systemic symptoms. I am currently gathering data from all these affected people to decide on our next steps. Second, do you receive neck manipulations from a chiropractor or physiotherapist, etc.?
