aldara

Avatar n tn I really dont understand it, but evidently the bad cells are thru 3 layers of the vaginal wall. My dr prescribed Aldara vaginally, twice a week for 12 weeks. I've had my 4th treatment, and I'm not having fun. Within 24 hours after teatment I am crying in pain, muscle aches, joint pain, my skin over my whole body hurts. I also have vaginal itching, burning, but its not that bad. I also am having nausea, with upset stomach and vomiting. About 48 hours after the treatment, i begin to feel better.
Avatar n tn I've been using aldara for about 3-4 months now. It took about 6-7 weeks to start working for me. It cleared up my warts in about 8 weeks but had another outbreak. It has cleared up everything so far. I'm waiting to go on a follow up appt so I guess will find out soon. How long have you been using aldara? I also had a yeast infection when i was diagnosed w/ hpv.
Avatar m tn I inquired to my doctor about trying Aldara, as I have some old aldara that I tried on my keloid scars years ago, he told me to "try it" and that it should work in three days, after reading much online about people having horrible experiences with this drug i chose to try condyline one more time in my last trial which is where I am now. Now that I can see the warts coming back again, my question is; Should I try using aldara?
Avatar n tn 1) I have HPV and have been using aldara successfully whenever a new wart pops up. However, this week I had the worst reaction yet to the cream ( I think?!): Itching, burning, painful sores (which scab over in less than 1 day). This has persisted on one side of my body for 5 days now. I am worried that I have herpes. My right lypmh node is swollen as well in my genital area. The redness and swelling has subsided somewhat on the 5th day. Is this too short to be a herpes outbreak?
Avatar n tn Has anyone with autoimmune disease used Aldara for any skin cancer or precancer? What have your experiences been? (In terms of exascerbation of autoimmune problems; other adverse effects; cure rates.) thanks.
Avatar f tn Fast forward to April, i try ACV home method because those two dots are still present and this causes a huge cluster to pop up (sneaky bastards we’re chilling under my skin i guess). So i go to the doc right away and get treatment plan with off brand Aldara (Immoquid). I’m on about week 6 of treatment and some warts are appearing to be kind of stubborn but i see change.
Avatar n tn also ive found that this cream seems like a more watery consistancy then the real aldara cream and it doesnt work as well with the warts as the real aldara cream. any advice would be great or if anyone has experiences the same thing. thank you very much...
Avatar n tn 1)Is it possible to be getting results from Aldara without seeing any irritation to the warts that werent treated with cryo? Is it normal to use cryo and aldara together? What is the normal process of aldara because my penis is not red all over like the "during treament" on the aldara website? 2) There is some painful blistering on my scrotum from the aldara (not that I had visible warts there it is just where my penis lay after I put on the aldara)...is this normal?
Avatar f tn However the warts that were still present in the inside of my vagina were treated at the obgyn with Trichloracetic acid because the aldara was not working for me at all.
Avatar f tn Aldara worked great for me, getting rid of everything in 1-2 weeks. However, I've heard from many other people and the majority had useless experiences with aldara. Here is a list of treatment: Podophyllotoxin solution and Podophyllotoxin cream, Podophyllin Solution, TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid), Cryotherapy, Cauterizing, Laser Treatment, Surgery.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm a male, 26yrs old. Can anyone describe their experiences with Imiquimod? I am on the 3.75% cream which my doctor has told me to use every other day for a month. In the first 2 weeks, nothing happened, only just a couple days ago I noticed a very slight indication that the medication might be working, but I'm still not sure. I have about 20-30 very small warts, and notice 2 or 3 of them showing a bit of redness and drying up a bit. Still not sure if this is due to the medication.
Avatar m tn Since I am traveling oversees for several months, I self-diagnosed, and bought a 1-month supply of Aldara 5% Cream from an OTC pharmacy, and have been applying that following the directions in the product insert (3x/week, overnight). What seems odd is that the shape of the 'bumps' are flat, only slightly raised, flesh-toned (i.e.
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 m tn I have several factors that seem somewhat atypical: - I've had a continuous outbreak (warts) for the past 2.5 years, ever since I first contracted (or developed symptoms). - The warts recently spread to both sides of my upper thighs (within the past couple of weeks). - It seems like whenever I have sex with the partner from whom I contracted HPV (I know there's no absolute way of knowing, but I'm pretty sure in this case), the outbreak gets worse. Is this even possible?
Avatar n tn After rigorous treatment (surgically burned, aldara, etc), I have showed no signs since. Was curious to see other people's experiences with GW, since it can be such a stubborn nuisance.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed aldara cream as the warts I had were very small and unnoticable. They cleared up really soon, in about a week and a bit they were comepletely gone. I did suffer some unpleasant side effects but it was nothing I couldn't handle and it went away in a week or 2. This is the confusing bit. The virus HPV will always be in your system. Viruses are incurable unlike infections. Chlamydia is an infection, therefor it can be cured with antibiotics.
Avatar m tn the dr did the sprayed liquid nitrogen for 6 times and gave me prescription, aldara. my question is that, what procedure and how will they do for the warts that is inside the anus by the colo-rectal specialist?... i just wnat to know alex please!... Thank you!
Avatar m tn I know for a fact I am clean because I was tested 3 months ago for everything and it all came back negative and I have not had any sexual experiences up until last week. That same night I also received unprotected oral sex from a man for a very brief period of time. He had no noticeable lesions or outbreaks on his lips. Now to my symptoms which I am pretty sure are herpes related.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I'm clear in his office but have new ones pop up in between visits which I treat with aldara (irritating to skin)and a few with Retin A. QUESTION: What else can I do? Could this be something other than Molluscum? Any thoughts on colloidal silver treatment. Everthing I read says 2-9 months? Other's experiences?
Avatar n tn I must say mine came back about 8 times, but a nurse told me because I was so stressed about it, it makes it harder for the immune system to kick in. After using Aldara now, they have stopped coming back. But if they do - I'll be ready for them. It will be ok, so many people have this, some just choose to ignore it - and really - who wants to talk about it over the dinner table? Stay positive. It will get better.
Avatar m tn I had the itching for 6 months before I started to show visable warts, they put me on Aldara cream which was painful but it got rid of the warts in 1-2 weeks so I was pretty happy. I was diagnosed at about the end of Feb and so far i've had no reacurances but I am keeping in mind that it is likely for a second outbreak so I don't find myself feeling disapointed if I do find more! So I am still in the process of clearing.
Avatar m tn I've had symptoms for 1 year now. Started treatment (aldara) last July. Haven't used aldara in a while. Maybe condylox? Maybe acv. Should I buy organic acv. If so where from? Walmart? I take multi vitamins everday drink lots of fluids including green tea as suggested. Although I drink lipton diet green tea. Not sure if that is quality. I just don't know. Suggestions!? Let's beat this together!
Avatar m tn You risk spreading them to more body parts by doing that. Be seen and make sure these are warts and get them properly treated. Aldara cream is often useful at helping them disappear as well as keeping them from coming back. when talking with your new partner, talk about your own experiences as well as std's.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with hpv warts about 4 years ago. I was treated with aldara and some sort of acid which burned the area affected on my penis. I was paranoid that I was having recurrences but when to a dermatologist 1 year ago and then last week and both indicated that that they didn't see anything that resembled a wart. so, i have met someone new. I had 'the talk' with her about my having hpv in the past. I basically cut and pasted many, many facts about hpv and sent it to her email.
Avatar f tn There were also other bumps that she stated were ingrown hairs from shaving. I got a perscription for Aldara and applied it as I was instructed to the area near my vagina opening. It went away in about 2-3 weeks. The have recently come back. This time more noticeable. I could feel 3 small bumps between my anus and vagina. I have been applying Aldara again. I also don't have the best immune system at the moment... but that is a whole other story that I am trying to work out...
Avatar m tn I started falling apart cognitively about a year and a half ago, about the time I started taking Aldara for MC and Adderall for ADHD and I have progressively worsened since then. It has gotten to the point where I forced myself to drop out of college this semester. And this is the last thing I wanted to do. School is my life and I enjoy it very much, but my health is usurping my abilities to perform well in school.
Avatar n tn Although I do not mean to judge your truthfulness or that of your partner, in most circumstances like yours, someone isn't divulging all the facts about their past sexual experiences. However, there may be exceptions; for example, in rare cases, non-genital HPV types (e.g., HPV-1) may be transferred from a person's own hands to the genital area. This is speculative, because HPV-1 is rarely identfied in the genital area.
Avatar m tn (no HIV test) The doc gave her pills and she was re tested for chlamydia and was neg.(4 months ago we both developed HPV(warts)and have been given aldara to clear them up.
Avatar n tn If you are concerned, I suspect you can get inexpensive or even a free evaluation through your local health department at the STD Clinic. It is difficult to know what is causing the irritation your wife experiences when you have intercourse. I suspect that the cream your wife received was a medication called Aldara (imiquimod). This medication acts in part by causing a reaction in the areas it is applied to.
