Aldara and kids

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara and kids


Avatar m tn it says keep between 39-77 degrees. In this heat and me and my brother being cheap college kids out house temp ranges from like 75-80 and likely to go up in the hotter months. Should i hide it in the fridge?
Avatar m tn As per all of them, i have HPV and I have herpes and I have molluscum as well. I have also heard that aldara triggers off herpes.
Avatar n tn I was just diagnosed with genital warts, probably the worst news i had ever heard only because the amount of partners I had been with was very slim and my fiance is the only person that I did not use a condom with....anyways, i have several questions that keep running through my head and need some answers to hold me over till i talk to my doctors next. Once my outbreak goes away with the medicine my doctor prescribed me (Aldara) will they keep coming back monthly?
801603 tn?1239573778 The reason i asked this question to begin with is my b/f who is in jail right now is due to be released soon and it is hard to have him understand the risks and also for me to ultimately feel like my life is over. Thanks for responding.
Avatar m tn My warts are sometimes pimple like and really tiny and some flt so my urologist blows it off and say I dont see anything but I do. I cant find a good doctor that knows. None have ever mentioned aldara and I dont know it would be good for me. What can I take to boost my immune system casue I dont kow what to and I dont want to die casue of this. MY ex told me she had it after the fact and know I a scared. I am scared that since I cant clear it genitally, I may not orally and have serious issues.
598912 tn?1219552112 I have hpv,and i had a reoccurence of gw so m doc 0rescribed aldara. ******* hell hole in a packet. after only s couple days of using it, yesterday my vagina lips swoll up along with the middle portion too. i began to walk funny because it would hurt to bump them together. i was at work still and needed to home asap.
Avatar n tn Hey im 19 and had some Mollescum on my inner thigh, but my doctor said it is very common among little kids also. It cant be spread that easily, unless there is alot of rubbing and it opens it wont spread. As fas as it going away it takes a few months maybe up to 6. I wish you the best of luck!
Avatar n tn Hi AJ My physician has precribed Aldara cream for the Warts and also applied some cautic solution using a cotton swab for treatment of the warts. Since then it is causing a slight burning anf itching sensation in that area. is it a common symptom or could be bit of chemical allergy due to the caustic solution?
Avatar f tn at first i was using a condom in all my relationship but my dr diagnose me with hpv about 5 months ago as i had one small outbreak in the shaft of my penis and he advise me to remove it.. and i agreed i dont have any outbreak after and i went twice for check and nothing found !! untile now after i removed that possible wart i read it can be tested to confirm hpv diagnosis and the type.. but my dr didnt tell me that.. i really feel angry and sad..
Avatar m tn 1. Should I wait and try Aldara Cream or just do the laser treatment, knowing that I didn't do any screening test?2. Can the genital warts get more spread after laser treatment since is in early stages of warts? 3. In future can Genital warts be cleared from my body and be able to get married with kids? 4. Is Co2 Laser Treatment is the best wart removal option? Hope to have suitable answers from you. Thanks in return.
Avatar n tn So I went back again and same procedure, after this he perscribed Aldara. The warts did return but only a few returned and I have been using Aldara for eleven weeks now. I also started using tea tree oil the days that I am not using Aldara,(aldare used three times a week) Basically, I still have visiably warts in the groin, they are smaller and red, no itching ever, even when they were bad and they have never hurt me at all, just have been in the groin area.
Avatar n tn The need for alternative therapies is greater in toddlers and kids than adults, because they often have more lesions and more widespread ones, and the kids (and their parents) don't tolerate the quicker but more painful approaches like currettage (scraping the lesions off) or freezing. The result in kids are promising. But I don't see the advantage for adults, and I wonder why it is being used in your case.
Avatar m tn I am sad and depressed because my ob made me feel like a **** and didn't really say anything except that I shouldn't have slept around and that I shouldn't have sex ever again. She subscribed aldara .5% cream and in have been using this med for a week now. I have severe itching and more warts have showed up on my labia and around the lips of my vagina. I don't know how long it takes for this cream to work. I just want the warts gone.
Avatar m tn I am married with kids and got it and my wife never did. Who knows! By the way the terminolgy for scrapping off is curettage I believe.
Avatar n tn I have been with my boyfriend 3 years and before that the same guy for 8 years. I had another baby 5 years prior and never had anything like this. Please help me!! there is a picture posted there!!

Avatar m tn Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Just use the meds. No matter what it is, Aldara will recruit the immune system and recognize/attack the pathogen/irregular tissue growth. I strongly believe recruiting the immune system's strong attacks using Aldara is very effective in young patients. BUT STAY AWAY FROM OTHERS WHO ARE SICK! DO NOT LET ANYONE KISS YOU / EXPOSE YOU TO SALIVA. YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE EXPOSED TO ADDITIONAL *VERY NASTY* HERPETIC FAMILY VIRUSES RIGHT NOW.
Avatar f tn However i started using the apple vinegar method and one wart has fallen off and others decreased in size! My worry is that i have found someone i love and i want to have a bright future with her. Kids are a possibility and i want to be as healthy as possible for that person. Some people say this virus is killed by my immune system, some say its always in me, i dont know what to believe!
Avatar m tn i've had warts for 2 years. after trying cryotherapy and aldara nothing worked so 6 months ago i started the burning option. seems to have worked. last burning session was over 3 months ago. since then nothing has appeared except for this bump. its been there for like 2 months.
Avatar m tn He didn't give me a lot of information. I recently noticed them and my girl friend and I have been having sex and oral. I am concerned about getting the molluscum orally and it spreading to the rest of my body. I read about the silver pen, which was FDA approved. I am scared becasue mu partner now said that she has always been tested and didnt have anything. She works for a dermotologist. I dont know how to tell her.Is there anything I can do? How can you get rid of it orally?
Avatar n tn then I had my cycle again and all over again with itching and burning and discharge and some swelling of the vulva area , So I call gyn again to find out she on vacation again so now I can she her partner he for some reason didn't think this was hpv which of course now has me think especially because I read a post of yours on June 22, 2010 02:26PM which you said " It would be unusual to have warts and not have a positive HPV test.
Avatar n tn I am 23 and my wife and I both have Molluscum Contagiosum. Her on her genitalia and me on my abdomen and genitals. I am aware that it is supposed to go away on its own and I have accepted that, but here is my problem. I have an inguinal hernia that desparately need to be repaired. That means cutting me open in an area that is infected by MCV. Could there be any complications such as a higher risk of a bacterial infection or anything of the sort due to the presence of the virus?
Avatar m tn Ever since then, they have returned every three or so years and go away after cryo and aldara. I have been vigilanant not to reexpose my wife. For 8 years I have lived on the edge, afraid that I will hurt her. Every year when her pap and HPV screen are negative I breath a sigh of relieve. This past December that streak came to an end. She has a great ob who we have kep in the loop the entire time since we discovered my issue.
Avatar f tn I found the acid worked great at killing off any new warts I had each week. I am using Aldara now and it's slow but then I only have 2 warts, the first one I ever got and I tend to wonder if it is even a wart and one I got between my last acid and first Aldara treatments. They are not growing so that's good. Just have to wait til this passes for good. Def have your doc look into any risk to the baby when passing through the birth canal.
Avatar m tn She had been to the tanning salon and I could see marks on her stomach that looked like burn marks or surgery (she later mentioned that she has three kids --- she is aged 25 and her youngest is 2 years old - she was rather short 5'4" and about 120 lbs, and maybe those were stretch marks?). She took off my clothes to my underwear and sat on my stomach in her bikini bottom with her facing toward my feet.
Avatar f tn I am just not happy with the slowness of Aldara and the fact I have new warts in an area that is hard for me to see or treat. The lame part is I made the appt. the day before my son will be getting an award at a local university, he is young they are just holding the ceremony there. LOL I felt the need to say I am not old enough to have a college student, yet! :) Anyway, I will be dressing up and sure the things wont be some comfortable down there that day.
Avatar n tn I found 7 more in the past week, two are in the same area (leg) I had frozen off in June. I have had them frozen off, burned off, and use aldara. I also tried an essential oil treatment. I go back to the dr this week. She promised to burn more off if the aldara didn't do it. I have many bumps from the molluscum where I used the aldara. I wonder if I will ever have smooth skin again. I am going to ask about laser treatment if the bumps don't go away.
Avatar n tn They become immune and don't catch it again, but people who don't happen to have it as kids remain susceptible--and then it can be transmitted by genital secretions. The odds are pretty good that your recent partner also is infected--but some people probably are infected without visible lesions. However, not all cases are sexually acquired; often the origin is mysterious.
Avatar n tn Hello. I feel your pain, living with HPV can be very emotionally scarring as it strips a woman of her femininity. It is horrible that you have a bad case of genital warts, because even if I notice one, it changes my mood dramatically. I am 18 too, so I can identify with you a little bit. It's not fair that you took precautions, you did it with the right guys and yet you still managed to get the virus.
Avatar n tn I had them treated and removed via cryo, used Aldara and I was told that as long as It was smooth. I was ok to have sex with my wife. We went on Vacation and just to be safe we used a condom for everything. Then two days ago. Two more warts popped up in two different spots. They werent there to the naked eye or touch when we had sex, but from reading here that may not matter. I am bummed. So my questions, AM I a ticking time bomb for her.
