Aldara and yeast infections

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara and yeast infections


Avatar n tn I went to the doctor, and they gave me Aldara for HPV. This was in January. Since then, I have had the worst yeast infections, and while one bump is slowly decreasing in size (and has hardened and turned quite red in the process), none of the others are changing size at all, and I am getting more tiny little white bumps within a few inches of the initial three bumps I had. I am pretty sure it is HPV, but it seems to be geting worse. I have been tested recently for HIV, and that was negative...
Avatar n tn Well,it was red and sore before the Aldara too... that's why I orginally went and got checked. Imagine my surprise when he said the biospy read "vuval warts", which, I don't think has anything to do with the irratation. Can the biospy be wrong? Like I said, no metion of HPV... so confused!
Avatar n tn Why can't I put a band-aid over the condyloma after putting on the Aldara? The Aldara inevitably seeps onto the very sensitive inside of my vagina causing redness and irritation. Would it be okay to put a band-aid on after using the cream? 6.
Avatar f tn I'm just wondering if you can use regular OTC treatments for a yeast infection while treating genital warts with Aldara at the same time? I've been using the Aldara for about a week now and have started to have symptoms of a yeast infection for about the past day or so. I've had yeast infections before, so I feel like I can tell when I have one. ALSO - any connection between using the Aldara and yeast infection occurances? Thank you!
Avatar f tn also ask your doctor about other treatments that can be used between freezings, such as podofilox (Condylox) or imiquimod (Aldara). Yeast and chlamydia are entirely different infections, not easily mistaken for chlamydia. Your situation really isn't all that confusing. Remember that almost all infections go away by themselves. (Before antibiotics came along, most people with pneumonia didn't die; it just took a long time for the infection to clear up.) This is true for chlamydia.
Avatar f tn I am not familiar with Aldara other than it is used to treat warts and know that they are not at all linked to yeast infections. A friend of mine has had this but she thought it was just a skin tag when she got pregnant turns out it was a wart but it was not a threat to pregnancy nor did they treat it in any way. I would contact your doctor and ask why they have you on Aldara , I have never heard of HPV causing yeast infections.
Avatar n tn even though vulvadynia will cause cuts and sores as well. I have a feeling it's yeast. I get yeast infections 4-5 times a year now for the last 2 years... but the rx yeast medication that I had to insert really burned and did nothing to releave my symptoms... so we had to rule out STD. My Gyno did another PAP today to see if I've cleared the High Risk HPV. He suggested that the HPV was the cause of my Vulvadynia symptoms and that the Aldera cream may have helped clear the HPV.
Avatar m tn specifically low grade squamous cells. Additionally, I have occassionally yeast - like infections that are moderately painful and itichy. During these yeast - like infections, which have occurred maybe monthly for the past year; there is an orange-red discharge ONLY noticable when I wipe, with a few particles of some kind of tissue. I am going in for a colpscopy, and pending those results I will know what to do next.
Avatar n tn Other than STDs, I'm not an expert in gynecologic symptoms or infections. Yeast and vulvodynia sound possible, but that's about all I can say. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
Avatar n tn Yeast can be a booger to get rid of and keep rid of. In other words, see your provider and get tested for yeast and bacterial infections for starters. If herpes is on your mind, ask for a type specific herpes igg blood test so you can know your status and see if you even have to be worried that it's herpes related or not.
Avatar f tn female2785 No I've never used Aldara and I have no idea how likely you are to infect a new partner. It's Sunday and I have an appointment at a clinic to receive the first of the three shots that make up the HPV vaccination this coming Tuesday. This new wart breakout is continuing, multiplying, and they hurt. The ones near my left temple are sore right now and I haven't squeezed them at all and the latest one on my right cheek is sore to the touch.
Avatar n tn Everything burns, the Doc told me she saw yeast on 12-2, diflucan, and the otc vuvla cream.. moinstat, which I used once or twice a year when I had yeast infections since I was about 20. It stung everything and the diflucan fixed nothing. I went back and asked for an std test, i have been seeing 2 guys for the last 2 months, since my soon to be ex husband is out of the pic.
Avatar n tn i was worried it might have been another wart and my sister had some aldara cream so i put some on for 3 time a week for one week. i experienced INTENSE itching in the region and now the skin is cut, blistered, and in several places it looks white, similar to the effects of the freezing off of the warts. my question is, are these areas that had warts underneath the skin? could the aldara have helped to resurface the warts?
Avatar n tn I had a handfull of warts around the foreskin which the doc froze and prescribed aldara. Aldara eliminated some of the very small warts but there was no change to the bigger ones. Further, the aldara did not change my skin at side effects either. I used apple cider vinegar which appeared to work initially, but the bigger warts are back. Further, I have now developed a wart (three months later) that is totally different then the others on my lower scrotum.
Avatar n tn Herpes causes lesions that evolve from small red bumps to blister-like lesions to open sores to scabbed-over lesions, all spread over 10-20 days--shorter for recurrent outbreaks, longer for initial infections. Many atypical symptoms and signs are common, and most people in fact have few or no symptoms. Health care providers don't usually confuse warts with herpes lesions, and most urologists will have seen plenty of both.
Avatar m tn This skin condition can be aggravated due to diseases like hyperthyroidism, diabetes mellitus, pernicious anemia and Addison's disease. Fungal infections of the human body are very common, and are often quite bothersome. One such example is a condition known as tinea versicolor, a superficial yeast infection that produces white spots on the skin that are difficult to remove. You should talk to your doctor and rule out the above causes. Let us know if you need any other information.
Avatar n tn I have been to the doctor and was diagnosed with a nasty yeast infection. I asked him about the bumps around my labial area, and he seemed to think these were normal. Do the actual bumps of the herpes virus itch and burn? These bumps don't seem to do either, so can I feel some relief at least in that aspect? I began treatment for the yeast infection and the burning on the inside of my vagina ceased, but the itching and redness persisted outside the vagina. The bumps did not change...

Avatar m tn Well anyways went to planned parenthood here in town and the nurse said it was a genital wart and the red little bumps were other warts that may form or wont form but it doesn't look like anything i saw in pictures for genital warts because it is really thin and flat and not cauliflower shaped. The nurse told me about treatments and recommended and aldara type cream she said it was the best way to boost my immune system. So i went to a urologist and got a second opinion.
601156 tn?1229289425 At the same time I was using aldara cream, so the doctor passed it off as an aldara cream reaction- but my herpes blood test DID come back negative. However I have quit using the aldara cream, and the itching has come back on its own. Although there are no visible sores, for a while there was quite a bit of itching and irritation, and at times the itching would be quite intense.
Avatar n tn While examining me, my doctor also identified a small wart. She prescribed Aldara and the wart disappeared within less than a week. Other than 2 yeast infections I did not have any problems until I noticed on January 22, 2008 that the exterior soft tissue surrounding my anus was swollen and red. I was worried that it was warts or herpes or some other STD.
Avatar f tn did she look at what you thought was a wart inside your vagina to confirm that indeed it is a wart? did they recheck you for yeast and bacterial infections vaginally when you were seen?
Avatar n tn From what she told me, the people at the clinic gave her another pap smear test, which came back normal, but because she told them of her past couple of abnormal pap smears, multiple yeast infections, and 'risons' (whatever they are)it seems like they just told her it 'could' be HPV and didn't really test her for HPV itself. They could have tested her for other STDs but I'm not sure if HPV was one of them.
Avatar n tn told me was molluscum, which have been around for over 2 weeks, and internal vaginal itching, with slight external vaginal itching (which I have this in the past and attributed it to a yeast infection) and 2 or 3 tiny little pink dots on my outer labia that went away in 3 days. The gyn saw them and said they were nothing. I am still worried that I might have herpes, and will be getting a blood test. For those of you who have had outbreaks, how long does the itchiness last?
Avatar n tn like I said, she kept getting checked due to her yeast infections). Now, she just started Aldara cream. Seeing as how her pap smears came back negative do you think that shes in the majority that her immune system will eradicate the virus? Are women with abnormal pap smears more likely for more recurrences? And based on those facts, do you think she will she have any more irratation in the vaginal area once the Aldara cream is done?
Avatar f tn Hello Doc, I posted a few months ago about a rash around my perianal area that I got after using Aldara on a genital wart. I had a rash for about three months, and it turned out it was some sort of fungal or yeast skin infection. My gyno gave me cream that cleared it up in a few days. What I’m worried about is that ever since then I still get a reoccurring rash in that same area.
Avatar n tn I have been tested for yeast and bacterial vaginosis and both have come back negative multiple times so I don't think it is that. I should also mention that my bf has gw and he is itchy also. Would it be typical that we would both have the same itchy reaction? Thanks again for responding. I really appreciate it.
Avatar n tn I don't feel fine! I also am prone to BV and yeast infections..and I have a sensitivity to latex down there. Why do vaginas have to be so difficult?!? Does anyone have any suggestions, especially for reoccurring BV?
Avatar m tn On the fifth day I went to a Dermatologist, he said it might be genital warts ( on the fifth day after exposure!!!) and prescribed Aldara 5% cream every day for 5 days, three days after that I returned for a follow up as things did not go any better. The Doctor said it is not warts nor Herpes for sure. He said it is Allergic Contact Dermatitis and gave me Topical corticosteroid 0.1% cream and Xyzal tablets.
Avatar n tn specialist does a biospy which comes back as genital warts. Upon futher examination, we discover that I was misdiagnosed, and I was put on Aldara cream for nothing, which only intensified the vaginal pain. August 2005: go to another specialist. She diagnoses me with a bacterial infection. She gives me antibiotics which helped. For the irritation, she prescribed me some antidepressants, because she said that I have senstive neve endings down there. That helps.
