Common Questions and Answers about Aldara and plantar warts

aldara

Avatar n tn Well, eventually I was able to peel off a big section of skin with warts and all. They never came back, and the new skin was fine. Also had a fair-sized wart on my left index finger first knuckle, of all places, for several years. One day it just started to disappear and then it was gone in a few days. Good luck.
Avatar n tn but that is the most effective process i have seen for a resistant wart. aldara seldom cures stubborn plantar warts and the acid is not much better. as for shots, that gets expensive and is debateable too. there are not any homeopathic remidies to a wart that has resisted conventional medicine as i know it.
Avatar n tn So my doctor was about to cut them off, when I brought up the Candida antigen which is injected into common warts, plantar warts, etc as intralesional immunotherapy. She thought it was a great idea and we should try it. The injection was yesterday and by the end of the day yesterday the large warts were physically smaller, the smaller ones were disappearing. I'm shocked at how quickly results seem to be occurring.
Avatar m tn When the wart re-appeared, it was smaller in size and I continued to use Aldara to clear it. Also, I’ve had plantar warts on my hands and feet since I was little. About 5 months ago I observed some white, small, very flat, cluster bubble like formations on the skin of the head of my penis that looked similar to the other warts I previously had hence, I believe this may be HPV related. I’ve considered talking to a dermatologist however, desperation and frustration are taking over me.

You can want to discuss above mentioned intervention with your kid's pediatric dermatologist before taking a call on surgery. Alternatively you can take a review opinion from other Dermatologist. Hope this helps. Bye.
Avatar f tn Thanks for the info frank, did you also use aldara on your genital warts? I have it now, and doctor told me to apply it twice a week for 16 weeks, i hope these genital warts would be gone soon, I have a question, if these warts are gone, is still there any chances to infect your new partner? I am new to all these, I hate that I trusted the wrong one before. I felt like dying inside having these sufferings.
Avatar m tn plantar warts can go under the skin.....may have to cut that out!
Avatar n tn I also had plantar warts on my foot and they were fairly good size and were starting to really annoy me when I walked, jog, etc. I also tried over-the-counter ****, Aldara cream, and nothing worked. I agree you need to see a good podiatrist who does laser surgery. I had mine lasered off, the procedure took about an hour, in the office, and after about 3 weeks of bandages and hobbling around, the warts are completely gone. Forget those creams and go for laser surgery.
Avatar m tn I haven't cheated on her and we've been dating for about 2 years. I've never had warts and while I understand I may well have had the virus at some point in my life and in fact probably already have had hpv. Prior to her I hadn't had sex for 5 or six years. I understand that it is possible I have carried the virus for 5 or 6 years, but based on what I've read it seems unlikely I would have been the cause of this current infection.
Avatar n tn I'm a healthy 21-year old female. My fiance and I lost our virginity to one another three years ago and have been sexually exclusive with one another ever since. My regular MD felt I should wait until age 21 to have my first pap smear, so all routine physicals have been through her. Nothing has come up irregular. This week I had my first pap smear. My doctor delivered the news that she "thinks" I have genital warts.
Avatar n tn I am unaware of any research showing that slower resolution of HPV type 1 infections (the cause of most plantar and hand warts) predicts more problems with HPV-6, -11, and other causes of genital warts. My guess is it probably doesn't correlate. There are differing opinions on the ethical obligation to tell future partners of past HPV infections; the very fact that it's a moral question predicts that there won't be complete agreement.
Avatar m tn All these bugs, when collected in due time, as we age, tend to mk things worst eventually, and inviting more etc chronic diseases A marked signal of parasites infestation is craving for sweet food, blood sugar crash easily and not being able to skip any (heavy) meal at all eg during lunch occasionally I hv always suspected my (chronic) prob is due hpv. I have had plantar warts and they went away easily it seems. However, abt these 2yr or so, i developed chronic issues.
Avatar n tn ) if the opposing partner has/had them. Plantar warts and warts on the finger(s) are not transmitted to the genital area. HPV caused by genital/anal warts is only transmitted by genital warts. Extensive research has shown that there are over 100 types of HPV....nonthing that cannot be resolved without the use of such creams as Aldara or cryotherapy (freezing). Anal fissure: (1) caused by trauma to the anal region (due either to sexual stimulation or poor diet).
Avatar n tn I finally healed emotionally from the months of not understanding what was wrong followed by having an uneccessary surgery. I then found a plantar wart on each foot and continue to receive tx. for them. After trying to always practice safe sex, the condom broke with my next partner in the spring of '06. I immediately got tested for everything and was negative for everything except HPV in my cervix. 1-2months later, I dismissed a never seen lesion(s) for an ingrown hair(s).
Avatar n tn I've searched all over for an answer to this question, and all I've come across are topical treatments for genital warts. I haven't developed obvious warts, but I do show many small red lesions on the meatus, glans penis, shaft, and at the base along the pelvis. Generally, of the two home treatment options, Podofilox and Aldara, which is more effective for dealing with small lesions?
470214 tn?1207689964 they have vaginal itching, discharges, foul smells, and discoloration. i have a wart and i read vagintis causes planter warts, but this looks like a bush or a wart with a lot of bumps. hpv does causes order but it comes in 1/3 of women. this is why they go through many tests to determine what you have.
Avatar m tn Pathological conditions of HPV infection depends on the type of viral strains which are divided into High risk strains-16, 18, 31, 45 (genital cancers),High risk groups in cases of warts-6, 11, 42, 44 (ano genital warts-condyloma accuminata),moderate risk strains for simple warts-2, 7,Plantar warts-1, 2, 4, 63 (condyloma),Flat warts-3, 10, 8(papilloma) and so on. The risk of transmission from one person to another depends on which type of strain being the culprit.
