Aldara alternatives

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara alternatives


Avatar f tn A week later i got cryotherapy to freeze some off and she gave me aldara cream to apply for the following week. that was last week. so i applied the cream to the small areas and for the first day it was fine but after the second day of applying i have been in so much pain, pain to pee, walk, sit, do anything. i have noticed also one area where the largest wart was (was only small) this area has gone totally white. I am writing to ask if this is normal.
Avatar m tn hey mitch is it okay if i discontinue aldara and not notify my doctor and just wait until my surgery date which is less than a month away? or is it really important to consult my doctor and tell him i have these side effects, which he didnt explain i may have if i take aldara he just said how to use it...
Avatar m tn There are lots of other alternatives to Aldara- or even laser surgery, such as cryotherapy, TCA acid, other creams, etc. But stick to medical treatments, not home remedies, home remedies are not effective. Do not use Compound W or other such treatments, they were not designed for use on the genitals.
Avatar n tn No treatment is 100% effective and Aldara is no better than the several other alternatives available; all treatments, including aldara, work about 60-70% of the time. In any case, let your provider decide whether additional laser treatment, Aldara, freezing, podophyllin, Condylox, or some other treatment is best for you.
Avatar f tn I had undergone cautery but after few weeks, another warts occur. The doctor recommended aldara. Til now i still have warts. I tried the natural way, apple cider vinegar. Honestly, it helps but as i used it every night, it became more and more painful til such time that i stopped using it. I want to know other natural alternatives. Also, i want to know if using gynepro everyday, 2x a day is okay with my vagina. Thank you.
Avatar m tn To battle the warts I used Aldara however, one of the warts continues to come back. Whenever the wart re-appears, its size decreases but lately, I have seen some white, very small, flat, bubbly spots on the head of my penis which I think may be some other warts. Out desperation and frustration I've been looking into some alternative solutions like wartrol and viralfree however, I found nothing but mix reviews about these products.

Approximately 5-15% of people who receive the vaccine are considered non-responders. This is especially important for health care workers, families living in households with people that have HBV, and others who may be at increased risk of exposure to HBV.
Avatar m tn I had them for probably nearly 9 months before going to get them checked out, and it's been over a year now. Anyway, he prescribed Aldara, which I used for around 5 weeks before returning to him for a which point he felt it was getting better and recommended stopping treatment. After a week I could see they still remained, but the derm requested we wait the final 6 weeks before having a follow-up so he can verify.
Avatar n tn My last one showed me as having VIN2 which my oncologist/gyno wanted me to use ALDARA Cream for 3 months, I tried it but i couldnt function with all the side effects, So after much reading as much as i could find on HPV and VIN i started taking the supplement DIM, thought it was helping some but now I have the burning back again and am afraid I will have to go in and have another biopsy again. I hate this. How come so many of us never heard of this before.
