Aldara for warts on feet

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara for warts on feet


Avatar f tn I have had flat warts on my hands (back and palms) and feet (bottom and top) for over 15 years now. I have left them alone for around 7-10 years and recently started seeking treatment again. Tried Candida shots and while I had sloughing in one tiny spot with the first shot and redness and swelling with the others no significant changes have happened. I intend to try other creams etc that are on the option list (aldara etc) and I'm taking cimetidine (rxd by my derm) just in case it might help.
Avatar m tn 5% cream and in have been using this med for a week now. I have severe itching and more warts have showed up on my labia and around the lips of my vagina. I don't know how long it takes for this cream to work. I just want the warts gone. My question is will they go away and how long does it take for this med to work? Does HPV last forever?? I am sad because I want to get married and have children. I am so sad that this happened to me. I don't know who to talk to. Please help.

Avatar n tn My 15 yr old daughter has had these same flat warts on her forehead for 2 yrs. She is soooo self conscious! I feel for her so much. She has been to 4 diff docs and tried castor oil, aldera,tagamet and accupuncture. Nothing works! Accupuncture does seem to lessen it some and hold it down, as long as she goes twice a week. If you find anything that works, please email me at ***@****. We are getting desperate.
Avatar f tn I am not applying aldara on that area, only on the right side of vaginal opening inside, coz I have wart inside and she told me to put aldara on it, Its impossible for aldara to scatter there on urethra.
Avatar n tn They are flat and about the same color as my skin, although some of them are a little darker. They started on my ankles, now they are on my ankles, feet, inner thighs and hands. I've to two dermatoloists. One sad that it was warts but did not recommend freezing them off because he said that it usually leaves skin discoloration in black people. The other doctor said that it wasn't warts. I can't quite remember what he said it was. He gave me a prescription lotion that did not work.
359937 tn?1220987451 Plantar warts are the warts that occur on the soles of the feet. These types of warts may resemble calluses or corns, but you can tell the difference because plantar warts disrupt the natural lines of the skin and may have small black dots on their surface, which are tiny blood clots in blood vessels. Warts usually don't cause any symptoms and do not require treatment, although plantar warts may be painful.
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.
Avatar m tn I've had warts under my nails, warts, on my hands, on my feet, in my genital area in my anus. It can most certainly make you feel down...especially when others notice them and make a face about how ugly they are. I'm a woman. I've had abnormal Pap smears. I've had abnormal cells removed from cervix. I had the Gardisille vaccine as well. I am still struggling to get rid of these warts. It's refreshing to hear I'm not alone. I sympathize greatly with anyone who is infected.
Avatar n tn Warts tend to occur in warm, moist places, like small cuts or scratches on the fingers, hands, and feet. Warts are usually painless and go away on their own in 3-6 months. It is common for warts to reappear after treatment .Picking at a wart and touching the wart and then another part of your body can spread warts to other parts of the body. You will need to see an experienced dermatologist and get them removed.
Avatar m tn well the doctor said that could be warts they gave me aldara but they did not go way i have 3 on the palm of my hands one on my lower pinky finger and 2 on my finger tip i know it is not herpes cus they have been there for over a year what do u think i should do?
Avatar m tn The freezing kits you buy in stores, have large 'heads' on them because they are designed for larger warts people would get on their hands and feet. It leaves scarring on your penis because you are killing off perfectly normal skin cells, not just the wart. However, the freezing method performed by doctors is much more precise, as it only covers the warts, and it is also more effective (it's colder). Do not be frightened about it hurting, it barely stings.
Avatar m tn Whether or not your plantar wart was treated or resolved spontaneously, most likely it never reappeared and you haven't had other warts of the hands or feet. Your partner can expect the same outcome for her anogenital warts.
Avatar n tn Hi, A wart is generally a small, rough tumor, typically on hands and feet, that can resemble a cauliflower or a solid blister. Genital warts (or Condyloma, Condylomata acuminata, or venereal warts) is a highly contagious sexually transmitted infection caused by some sub-types of human papillomavirus (HPV). It is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact during oral, genital, or anal sex with an infected partner.
Avatar f tn I had Aldara cream prescribed for warts on my hand at home and tried it a few times in that area. A couple weeks later I started having all sorts of serious problems; tingling and numbness in my hands and feet, muscles stiffening up, now having muscle twitching and pain in my legs. I am fearful this may be a result of using the Aldara cream and have since read horrific reviews. I have seen a Neurologist and had tests done; lost sensory in feet. MRI's did not show anything significant.
Avatar n tn Imiquimod (Aldara), a topical immunostimulant used for the treatment of genital warts (USFDA approved indication) but is also used to treat actinic keratoses. Actinic keratosis is a skin condition characterized by rough, scaly patches on the skin of face, lips, ears, back of your hands, forearms, scalp and neck. The usual cause is overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. This is usually a precancerous condition, which can develop into skin cancer.
556286 tn?1215557480 This sounded like what I had, I had red bumpy warts around my butts, at night it got really itchy i used to scratch myself, take cold shower helped, and I used all kinds of off the counter but it didn't help. Please don't worry, I used to have these warts on my butts, and my doctor gave me Aldara cream 5% (imiquimod) and it went away within two weeks. Aldara is kind of expensive they're $300 for 12 tiny packets of about 4 water droplets. But they worked like miracle.
Avatar n tn Hi All, I'm A 22 year old gay male who has been having an itchy anus, especially after bowel movements, when walking around on my feet (i have a job that requires me to walk often for 10 hours). After having a bowel movement and performing several wipes, I noticed that there would still be a brown substance on the toilet paper that I presumed to be residual "poop juice" for lack of a better term.
Avatar m tn D). I've had Genital warts for a little under 3.5 years now. To save you the trouble of doing the math; I was young. But the long, depressing story aside, I've recently been able to suck-it-up and seek treatment for my condition which comes in a nice little box labeled Aldara. I assume most of you are familiar with this product?
Avatar m tn There is also a white color circle of the same sort on the front side of penile skin. I have been tested for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and Herpes and all were negative. I have been to two clinicians and they said they don’t know what the line is. Now it has been about 8 months and I still have light colored soft stools and my penile skin is thickening from where I was circumcised up. The skin is growing into the glands of my penis on the backside.
Avatar f tn I was scared out of my mind with what I found online but this site was the saving grace! I also tested positive for low risk and found my warts on my own. It took me 3 doc visits to have the docs agree I had warts and start treatment. I am the type that needs to educate myself and that helped me deal with the fears associated with HPV so now I try to help others.
Avatar n tn As to where you got them, the question is basically unanswerable (just as it would be on the hands or feet), and it really doesn't matter. As for treatment, all warts recur when they want to. You just need to keep after them by some noninvasive method. Sooner or later, the "give up," and stop recurring. Freezinf them in my experience does not usually scar--I suspect you just have some residual pigment, which will go away in time.
Avatar m tn Hello , im 21 years old and i realize had a genitial warts on foreskin of dick on 12 descember 2012. I have my first check with dermatologist 19 Descember 2012.

Avatar m tn I'm wanting to fight the HPV virus internally seeing as I have had warts burnt off in the past and it seems that wasn't enough. Here's my daily regimen... I've had the warts on my feet for a while now. Recently, I've been soaking my feet in Epsom salt, applying Terrasil wart removal cream at night and rubbing aloe vera gel on my feet during before I start my day. It seems to be working somewhat with the smaller warts, but the bigger wart on my opposite foot hasn't noticeably decreased in size.
Avatar n tn Only the smallest fraction of persons with HPV get cancer and the fraction of men who get cancer of the penis from HPV is orders of magnitude smaller than the portion of women who get cancer and precancerous lesions. AS for your warts, if you do not want Aldara or chemicals, the best thing to do is see a dermatologist who can freeze, laser or excise the lesions. Any of these are one step processes which will end the problem of the visible warts. Penile cancer.
Avatar n tn I had planters warts on my feet for a good 5-6 years. It was only one when it started out but eventually grew to be a cluster the size of a quarter. Like you I tried freezing, acids, home treatment creams patches gels etc and none of it worked in fact I think some of them made it worse. What worked for me was the duct tape, but I did it a little differently. I exfoliated the area first with a pummice stone and then watshed with soap and water, pat dry.
470214 tn?1207689964 HPV is a Virus that causes genital and cervical warts. HPV is not the same virus that affects the feet ( also called plantar warts. Your symptoms need further testing . HPV does not cause itching, or discharge. Please go to your local Doctor or your county Health Department for futher care.
Avatar n tn Later in college, I had an outbreak of warts on my legs (not regular looking cauliflower warts like on your hands or feet, but flat slightly raised warts) which my doctor stated were human papilloma virus, however I did not realize what she was talking about, nor cared at that time--I just wanted them gone.
Avatar m tn She took off my clothes to my underwear and sat on my stomach in her bikini bottom with her facing toward my feet. She did lots of rubbing and rubbed my penis directly (her underwear removed - my underwear still on) against her vagina and clit. The rubbing was with my underwear on. No condom. I also fingered her and she was very wet. I am worried that some of her vaginal fluids would have soaked through my underwear and got into my uretha and infected me with HIV.
Avatar n tn HPV is what causes warts, but the wart on your foot would be a different strain than warts on your genitals. There are over 100 strains of hpv, and they affect different parts of the body. What you get on your foot won't affect your genitals, and what you get on your genitals won't affect your feet.
