Aldara cream cost

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara cream cost


Avatar m tn She did use a cream on him that appeared to temporarily work-- imiquimod cream 5% - drug name Aldara. It has 12 single application doses (each the size of a postage stamp). She writes: "Not much in them so it's hard to only use one on an application. It cost $180 more in some other drugstores. I bought two boxes and used for 5 ½ weeks Monday to Friday as the vet said.
Avatar n tn Not sure why you say 'look at those prices', they sell the Condylox cream for $60 without a prescription, in this country that stuff would cost you about $175, plus a trip to the doc. Just trying to help those less fortunate than you who don't have health insurance and don't get free trips to the doc.
Avatar n tn At the time I had a cluster of maybe 10 medium sized warts. My doctor gave me aldara cream, and she assured me it wasn't a big deal, many people had it, usually goes away on its own, etc etc, and not to worry because it wasn't the cancerous type. Within a week of using aldara, my warts were 100% cleared up. I have not had a re-exam or any signs/problems with warts since then. I have also only had one partner since I was diagnosed, and he has never shown any signs of warts.
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 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 The liquid nitrogen will freeze the spots off, and aldara is a cream that you put right on the spot, and you should be careful to not get it on healthy skin.
Avatar n tn Aldara cream works like a charm. It is quite expensive, but worth it! Got rid of mine in one week!!!!
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 He told me that there was nothing I could do and that they go away on their own, but on the websites I visited it says that the bumps can last up to 3 years! Is there any kind of cream or home-remedy I can use to get rid of them faster? He said that most people "pop" them to get rid of them but I'm afraid that might cause more spreading since it is so contagious. What should I do? I just feel dirty.
Avatar m tn If your lesions are still spreading your next visit, the dermatologist will remove more. Sometimes even a topical cream like aldara will be recommended too. All of this might take months until the mc is gone and stays gone unfortunately.
Avatar f tn This procedure is used both for external warts and for warts on the cervix or other internal tissue. - Electrosurgery - Imiquimod, known as Aldara, is an approved, self-applied cream that helps the body’s immune system fight the infection. - Laser therapy is sometimes recommended. This is because the high-intensity light, used in conjunction with a microscope, can be adjusted precisely for area and depth, leading to little scarring and good cosmetic results.
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 n tn I was not sure what it was and did not do anything to treat it. After about a month, I bought Aldera Cream as i thought it might have been a genital wart. A week after using the Aldera, I noticed a red area on my scrotum. I continued to use Aldera on the new spot. It has slowly spread. The bumps themselves are not painful. There are no longer bumps although my whole scrotum is red and the skin slowly peals off. My penis also has the red area on it.
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 m tn what type of surgery procedure you had on your warts?... have you ever used aldara?... or only condylox cream... (sorry for so much questions!) i started my treatment today with aldara and i hope it will work on me, coz i am really pissed.. thats the only thing i can do, be patient. wait for 16 weeks!!!...
Avatar m tn You can have them electro-cauterized which is said by some to be the most effective. You can have them liquid nitrogened. 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.
Avatar m tn The best thing to do is treat the warts as they come, since the warts are known to carry the virus and the part of the skin they grow on are also known to have some viral load as well. Aldara is a cream that is known as a immune system modifier which allows your body's immune system to fight the virus from the inside. Cryotherapy is also a treatment which a medical professional freezes the warts off, this is in case you're having a lot of warts appear.
Avatar n tn The Doctor therefore told me to try another 4 weeks on the Warticon, again no effect whatsoever. The doctor then prescribed Aldara cream. Again after 4 weeks there was still no change to the warts. I think I then did about a further 12 weeks on the aldara at the request of the doctor, with appointments after every 4 week stint. Again no change. As neither the aldara nor the warticon had worked I then did the cryo (freezing) treatmnent.
Avatar n tn My latest consideration is simply using I believe it was Apple Cider Vinegar, but I need to look into it more. Supposedly a lot of people claim it works even better than aldara (which costs an arm and three legs!). But I don't know anything about cryotherapy (as far as cost goes) and I'm having a hard time finding out without calling Planned Parenthood (and I can only call on Saturdays because of conflicting schedules, which I simply haven't gotten around to yet). Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn vit d3 and pth at optimum levels hbv vaccine boosted by aldara cream at site of injection zadaxin (expensive)
Avatar n tn She said that she'll check my BF using the microscope (apply acetic acid first, etc.) then prescribe Aldara cream if found positive. I've done some research thru the internet before and I learned that there is no test for men unlike the hpv DNA for women. My BF and I would like to know if this test is necessary or useful at all? Also, is it futile because we've been having sex for a year now. Is there really a chance that we can keep re-infecting each other?
Avatar n tn One of the options was to freeze them off. Another was Aldara. My understanding (and please correct me if I'm wrong) is that Aldara addresses the cause, while freezing them off only eliminates the symptom. Through all the reading I've done online about this, and it has been a bit confusing to put 2 and 2 together at times.. this is what I understand about the virus and warts.. - The virus is extremely localized in the skin, specifically to the spots that warts would actually form.
Avatar n tn 1) You may be prescribed a topical cream like Aldara 2) or you can get them zapped off a number of ways and there might be more I'm not sure (I haven't started treatment on mine yet so i don't know much about that area) Also, remember that pretty much everyone is exposed to HPV. It does not make you disgusting, you and I are just the lucky ones that got the kind that makes visible warts. it is VERY common, not life-threatening, and temporary, and it does not make you any less of a person.
Avatar m tn My question is when I use the aldara cream, since there are so many will the dr. have me put it all over my penis. I've read that it causes skin irritation and would think that if I use it all over my penis that it will be very painful, and quite a sight...Not that the warts aren't a sight already...I'm new to all of this and just need a little direction. My appointment isn't for two more days, I haven't been diagnosed yet.
Avatar m tn actually stef told it is available as aldara cream but has no standard method to consume and has many sides. djxpress may tell more about gs 9620. it makes our body to make our own interferon and in more quantity with less side effect and may be very useful in curing hepb with antivirals. perhaps will be available in 2017 when gilead's tenofovir patent is going to end.
Avatar n tn The answer to your question is in my initial response. I don't advise self-treatment. Obviously if you don't want to pay to see a doctor then thats your choice, but I would advise it for reasons already clearly given. I don't have anything further to add I'm afraid so there wont be any further responses to this.
Avatar m tn do you think the israel hbv vaccine may have a therapeutic result if used with aldara cream monthly in a patient with slow hbsag decline? or maybe used after pegintf treatment with low hbsag like 1000iu/ml to finish clear the remaining hbsag?
Avatar m tn When you mention "Gileads therapeutic vaccine" did you mean its TollLike7 receptor agonist drug, that is currently in development or do they indeed also have a therapeutic vaccine in development? The TL agonist drug was tested in Woodchucks as presented in Orlando last year and showed very impressive Vl reductions of 3 to 4 logs. I would like to mention that an other TL7 agonist is already approved for skin conditions. Its name is Imiquimod and the brand name.
Avatar m tn After 3 days of discontinuing the cream, only the mother queen and the 3 other small ones were left, so I called of the surgery. Compared to Aldara and everything else I tried, this cream finally really seemed to impact the warts, so after consulting my doctor, I decided to give it another try. The next week I started again, with the same reaction. They seemed to be everywhere!! At least 30 of them, not just on my perineum, but my whole private zone. This time I pushed trough...
Avatar f tn What has he tried? How Aldara Works Aldara Cream works from within by activating the body's own immune system. When Aldara Cream is applied to the skin, immune cells are activated and travel to the area. For example, in the case of genital warts, the activated immune cells work to eliminate cells that have been infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes the warts. Aldara has no direct antiviral activity and is not chemodestructive or cytotoxic.
