Aldara cost

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara cost


Avatar m tn Eventually I had them checked, they were warts and I had them removed and was put on Aldara. I used what my dermatologist gave me but I had no insurance so I never actually filled the prescription. The warts came back months later. I thought about the laser surgery which would be very expensive but the doctor put me back on the Aldara, which I filled this time, hoping it would take care of the problem.
Avatar n tn Now I'm without and want to get rid of these warts instead of continuing on Aldara (which I think may be hurting me), but want to have some sense of cost before I go in.
Avatar m tn Essentially, she's looking for something to apply that will work like the aldara, but without hte high cost (esp. considering the treatment only slightly improved his condition). Any known aldara substitutes out there?
Avatar m tn I'm using aldara right now too, I am a female but my skin has started burning and bleeding too, I talked to my doctor and he said it's normal.
Avatar n tn Depending on the extent of your warts, you might have to return to the clinic several times, at little or no cost each time. The cost of a physician visit, such as to a dermatologist, and the costs of the prescription drugs for genital warts--podofilox (Condylox) or imiquimod (Aldara)--can be high, but vary all over the map from one city to another and among pharmacies. You will get better information than my guess by calling a local dermatologist and a few pharmacies in your area.
Avatar n tn I will not have insurance for 2 months. A doctors visit for this would run $350 plus the cost of tests, and Aldara is $325 for a 12 day supply. Personally I think this is NOT a big deal/problem, since I had a normal pap last year and the non cancerous HPV strain. I just want some advice/reassurance that it will be ok to wait this out if I don't have any other unusual symptoms or break outs, and start taking better care of my eating and sleeping habits. Thank you all in advance!
Avatar n tn Dr - I am a 24 year old male and last summer was diagnosed with genital HPV. My dermatologist prescribed Aldara. I hate the product because not only did it make my skin itch and turn red, but it also increased the number of warts on my penis (I don't know why this happened). Anyway, there was no change in my condition. I want to try another product, but don't trust my dermatologist. Can you recommend any other products that will help treat HPV in males?
Avatar m tn it almost looks like my skin is cracking apart. I went to a doctor about 5 years ago and he wasn't sure what is was and prescibed me Aldara. The skin smoothed out using Aldara, but it went back to normal very quickly after I stopped using it. Does anyone have any Idea what this could be? I'm thinking maybe i need to get a biopsy. How much do biopsies cost? Any information is appreciated.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm a Male to female transsexual and I was recently diagnosed with GW in the anal area. I have been going to a local low-cost clinic and was treated for one initial huge one and have been intermittently self-treating with Aldara and going back to the clinic for review. On my last visit I noticed a few odd papules in my pubic hair and really small, pinhead size "whiteheads" on the shaft of my penis and on my scrotum.
Avatar f tn After approx 5 applications of Aldara they disappeared and there has been no signs of re-growth for the past 8 weeks. I had a PAP smear and HPV DNA PCR test a month after the warts went, which came back normal/negative respectively. The PCR listed several different HPV types and all were negative including 6 & 11. A couple of my groin lymph nodes have been tender but not significantly swollen since when the warts first appeared.
Avatar n tn well i am definitely getting them removed one way or another but i'm pretty broke. about how much does it cost to get them frozen off? i have a prespcription for aldara but i'm trying to find the least expensive method (and best).
Avatar n tn I haven't been treated for Molluscum Contagiosum, but I know another treatment option is using Aldara. You might want to talk to your doctor about that if the freezing is not working. I think a week might be still on the short side to see if it works though.
Avatar n tn said it was contagious and could spread to other parts of her body or to someone else. She prescribed Aldara 5% Cream. It comes in 24 small application tubes at a cost of $639.00. Can anyone tell me the name of this condition? Thanks!
Avatar m tn They no longer offer cryotherapy at Planned Parenthood so electrocauterization or aldara is my only other alternative and I've already tried aldara and had no luck. I would really like to see a doctor or dermatologist but could anyone tell me an estimate of how much cryotheraphy would probably costs without insurance? Any of your experiences or doctor recommendations if in LA would be appreciated as well, thanks.
Avatar n tn And then some say you can just ignore them and they will go away on their own. I would just like to save the $200 monthly cost of these Aldara packets, and the electric needle/freezing isn't a good choice because I have so many warts, about 25 that are so tiny they look smaller than pin heads. Any thoughts on tea tree oil, olive skin oil, aloe vera? Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn I was told I have a mild form (my PAP came back normal) of HPV and given Aldara for break outs. I've had a couple external warts which have gone away after applying Aldara. Other than that I really haven't had any trouble. I am in a monogamous relationship with my fiance (not the one who gave me HPV) and we've talked about it and he hasn't had any symptoms. We use condoms, but not 100% of the time.
Avatar n tn i am just about to spend $800 on the vakcin with isn't promised to work and i am traveling to canada in 3 months and am scared about the cost of treating them over there with out the safety of my medicard. WHAT DO I DO????????????
Avatar m tn Welcome to the STD forum. When a health professional diagnoses warts, usually s/he is correct; and you would not have been prescribed Aldara (which is what I think you mean by "Valdera") for anything else. Therefore, if your anal "skin tags" look and feel like what you had before, then most likely your anal warts have recurred. This is very common, especially in women and gay men, but also not rare in exclusively heterosexual men.
Avatar n tn A dermatologist freezes the warts, then the person uses a cream called Aldara. They'll go away...but might come back, its a virus. It does calm down with time... depends on the severity. Some research indicates that using Aldara might prevent them from coming back in the same spot. You can see the warts on his penis if you look..... dont freak and make him self conscience. Try to diffuse with humor and/or love.... Penis have little glands on them, they resemble pimples... little bumps, normal.

Avatar n tn was diagnosed with Genital Warts. The doctor prescribed Aldara cream (5%). Since my doctor visit, I have noticed that the warts have increased in size & number. With the use of Aldara, would you happen to know how long it takes to see any results? With tough economic times, I've been extremely stressed to the point where I barely get enough sleep. Do you think that the stress is contributing to the increase of those warts?
Avatar f tn She told me nothing else was wrong with my anus and sent me on my way - with a prescription for aldara. I started using the aldara that night (friday). A week later I was still having difficulties and went to another doctor. This doctor gave me a thorough exam. He found two large fissures at the entrance of my anus and prescribed a cream to help them heal, he also told me to increase fibre. I asked him to look at the warts - he told me there was no evidence whatsoever of warts.
Avatar n tn Your doc can treat them by freezing them, or can prescribe aldara for you to treat them at home. If you don't have insurance, you can try a Planned Parenthood or std clinic - they can freeze them for a low cost. Most molluscum sores don't last nearly 3 years, though they can. For some good info on this, check www.ashastd.
Avatar m tn Hi Doc, I was recently diagnosed with molluscum contagiousum after numerous misdiagnoses that cost me about a month of treatment and allowed for substantial autoinnoculation (yes, I'm one of the unlucky masses who originally thought this was simply a pimple-ish thing I could shave and it would scab, obviously it didn't). I'm now in month four. A few weeks ago I went to the dermatologist, who this time determined that I did, indeed, have MC.
Avatar m tn thank u....
Avatar n tn no I don't believe the handbook mildly recommends it. I have no idea of the cost of it. I assume it isn't cheap. You can call your local pharmacy and ask for a cost estimate out of curiosity.
Avatar n tn I then had bumps show up on my inner leg next to my scrotum. When I put the Aldara on it got rid of the bumps but is now a big red area. The problem has slowly persisted for almost 4 months now and I need to get it taken care of. I have no pains, discomforts, or wierd spots on any other part of my body. I have been with the same girl for one and a half years. We just found out that we have Chlamydia. I have never had a discharge from my penis.
Avatar n tn I went back to my obgyn. She put acid on them and prescribed Aldara - she told me to wait 3 days and apply twice a day,every day. It was awful. The area near the vagina that she treated with acid blistered all up once I started the aldara, and the top part of my crotch got all inflammed, much worse! I stopped it after 3 days and put neosporin on the blistered one and vinegar and powder on the others. The blister went away in 3 days and that one is a faded lump.
Avatar m tn I've been with this now for at least 10 months, it seems, and have gone through a few rounds of treatment, and am currently using Aldara on a bunch of visible warts. My question is, at some point, will these warts just go away on their own? Is the Aldara or some other method of treatment the only way to eradicate them? I wonder if I shouldn't just count 'em up, and call the doctor for a quote (no insurance, unfortuately).
Avatar m tn You can put some cream/gel on there called Aldara or something like that which is supposed to be pretty thorough. There is also this condylox gel and perhaps more ways as well but that's the major ones. After you receive treatment, you can ask for an application of podophyllin which is used to disrupt unseen hpv in topical skin cells which is where the virus resides. You must remember, or know, that treating your genital warts won't mean they are gone forever.
