Avatar n tn Well, resiquimod is in this version: http://www.westoverheights.com/genital_herpes/handbook/downloadthehandbook/updatedherpeshandbookenglishedition-1.attachment/attachment/herpes_handbook_TW_7-22-07.doc "Resiquimod is an immune modulator whose sister drug, imiquimod or Aldara, has shown good success in treating genital warts. One study showed some limited benefit while using resiquimod for treating genital herpes.
Avatar m tn Hey everyone. I have GW and recently finished 16 weeks on Aldara. The cream cleared up the warts for about a month... but I notices some small warts returning near the base of my penis. I began using Aldara again but it does not seem to be working like it did. I have not noticed any change and the area has not turned red or anything. Should I try my luck at Condylox? Has anyone tried both and have advice? Thanks all! THis is SO frustrating!
Avatar f tn He recently surgically removed 2 keloids on his chest and our dermatologist gave him ALDARA cream to be used about 3 times a week on the wounds. I really want to know if he is doing the right thing. What chance is there that these keloids will re appear? and if they do will they be worse than before? what is your best advice? According to our dermatologist (who is known to be one of the best in our country) there is only a 10% chance that they will re-appear using ALDARA cream.
Avatar n tn If I have it, I know of various home treatments. Which should I try? Which is most effective? Condylox - apparently it is a weaker gel of podophyllin toxin, which burns off the warts. Has anyone used it? Where can I get it online? Aldara - cream that helps your immune system target the warts? Again, has anyone used it? Where can I get it online? TCA - an acid that burns the warts off? Has anyone used it? Where can I get it online? I was thinking of trying to get both condylox and aldara.
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 n tn No they just keep givinge podofilox. Thanx though, I'll ask the next time I go in.
Avatar n tn Aldara 5% Cream, Metronidazole .75% Gel 70G, and Cephalexin 500mg Capsules. I met with her doctor (before my diagnosis), and her doctor assured me that my wife was being treated for something that I was not in danger of contracting. Does my new diagnosis of HSV1 provide further evidence of the possibility that she has had intimacies (i.e. kissing or oral sex or colitus) with someone else?
359937 tn?1220987451 They have frozen it like 2 times in 4 weeks, now they have given up a pres. roll on gel to keep his foot dry?? But he still screams if you touch it and it is still there. What can we do. they said the next step is surgery. I dont really want my 2 year olds foot cut on b/c the pain will be intense and he will not be able to walk.
Avatar n tn My doctor prescribed condylox, but they are to small to keep the gel on the affected area only all five are barely visible bye eye) . I have talked to several docs some use cryo but I have not found any that use laser. None even brought up imiquimod which I learned about online and feel that it might be best in my situation. It seems they prescribe whatever they are familiar with. Also a transmission question.
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 I've only had my first breakout and I was given condylox gel. It works like magic...except it burns if you aren't careful with it. I also use tea tree oil soap, you can find it at a healthfood store. I have also heard that you in order for the warts (not the virus) to go away you need to keep your immune system up so eat lots of fruits and vegetables and take vitamin c. I'm not sure if it works but I use it every day just in case! Keep praying! Good luck.
Avatar f tn But I didn't develop the warts until august 2008 and I am still having outbreaks while I have been using treatments such as TCA, aldara, podofilox solution and lastly condylox gel I am hoping that this is my last outbreak being treated with condylox and hope that I don't experience another outbreak in 2 weeks because my outbreaks come once a month. I would like to know could the outbreaks be from the fire my father death things of that nature play a part and tends to weaken the immune system.
Avatar f tn I have been to the doctors numerous times for treatments sometimes I use them sometimes I don't. I have used podofilox, TCA, aldara, condylox gel. I am still having outbreaks as of know how long does it takes for your immune system to clear the virus will my outbreaks go away. I have heard in some people the immune system usually clears the virus in about 1-2 years it has been just about two years i have been experiencing outbreaks.
Avatar n tn Yes you will but the virus can be controlled by using medications such as aldara cream, condylox gel, podifilox when warts are present those medications can be prescribed by your doctor.
Avatar n tn I've been to a dermatologist and I got my biopse done, and they told me I have flat warts (on my face), I don't have a big quantity but I can notice that every month a new one comes out. They told me to treat them with a medication called Aldara, but it is very expensive, so I bought a generic medication from India, which is called Imiquad manufactured by Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. I am using it 3x a week. I know the treatment is slow and that I am not going to have fast results at all.
Avatar n tn I have tried everything from Aldara, Condylux and Condisil Gel. Nothing works. The best results have come with the bleach, but the bumps are gone for only a day at the most. Then they come right back.
Avatar m tn I'm just not sure what type of doctor to see and what methods will they use to remove them? I spoke with someone who had them removed using condylox gel and he said it took 3 days on, 2 days off, and then 3 days on again but he said it was amazingly painful. He didn't tell me what type of doctor he went to though. So, what type of Dr would I seek treatment with and what type of removal would you recommend?
Avatar n tn mine didn't look anything like the pics. The apple cider vinager is applied to the warts. i never used it tho..I used aldara.
Avatar n tn Aldara 5% Cream, Metronidazole .75% Gel 70G, and Cephalexin 500mg Capsules. I met with her doctor (before my diagnosis), and her doctor assured me that my wife was being treated for something that I was not in danger of contracting. My wife and I range in having sex from maybe 3 times a week, (typically on the same day), to 4 times a month. We don't use condoms, we seldom if ever kiss and we don't practice oral sex. This last time we did kiss, a lot.
Avatar f tn s I have been to dermatologist who said it could be from the effect of the apple cider and ask me to use some cortisone gel to see if this tiny papule goes away by one week because he thought it could be something else like Pearly benign papule and it didn't go so then he used nitric oxide one it so it decreased in size and told most probably it's a wart. Even so it's been about two months now and I feel my penile head is just getting worse.

Avatar m tn Sounds more like folliculitis or some other superficial infection -- and for such a problem, Aldara is the last thing you should be using. Stop the Aldara and see a health care provider.
Avatar f tn Also I have used Tea Tree Oil on top of my warts and leave a cotton ball with a tape overnight, leave cotton ball every night till they disappear. Also use Aldara Gel but it will disppear in longer periods of time. Also, if you attend planned parenthood you can get an acid placed on the wart which will help you get rid of it faster in one or two days and will fall. Hope it helps. Keep your immune system high and you can have sex.
Avatar n tn I went to my GP and she said that they where warts and gave me condylox gel but told me not to use too much. I went home and started putting the gel on the warts. It didnt' appear to be doing anything so I did apply more. They were quite small. After two days, they were gone. On the 2nd day, I noticed a red bump on my genitals that I also applied condylox to. I had some pain during the first three days of application.
Avatar n tn I agree with the treatment approach thus far. Surgery, cryotherapy, imiquimod, interferon, 5-FU gel are all options to treat condylomata acuminata. Normally, the imiquimod is not indicated for internal use. If this option fails, you can discuss the other approaches. A referral to another urologist - preferably at a major academic medical center - or an infections disease specialist can be helpful. Until treated, I would suggest barrier contraception to reduce the risk of transmission.
Avatar n tn 1%, Capex and T-Gel Shampoos, OTCs...) I've been applying on the penis is causing irreparable harm to the skin. What is the best method of treatment for penile psoriasis? The best schedule for doing so? Is my prior use of medications causing the increased severity of psoriasis? I would like to consider the future of my penis! Presently, I can treat as needed and get good results.
Avatar n tn The others sometimes go away if I put bleach on them. I have tried everything from Aldara, to Condisil Gel. Nothing works. The best results have come with the bleach, but the bumps are gone for only a day at the most. Then they come right back.
Avatar n tn hello, Doc i am writing to find out if a z-pac would help with my gentile warts i am a 45yr old male who is married i am not a homosexual and have not had sex with the same sex i dont no how i caught these darn things i am having a hard time getting rid of these warts right now i am useing condylox 0.
Avatar n tn Think fast freezing is definitely the highway to get rid of it. Slower methods like Aldara takes some time but is less invasive..... Some ppl try vinegar or apple cider vinegar.... my GP once told me for genera warts that's useful as the aci alters the pH and makes it more difficult for the virus to replicate (dunno how much truth there is to it - unconventional). I understand being a broke college student and this suxxx.
Avatar f tn We first saw a pediatrician who froze a wart on my 5 year old daughter's forehead a year ago. The wart grew back as large as the freeze site. We tried all kinds of otc patches and solutions, but she gets contact dermatitis from the adhesives used to cover the site and we can only treat her so much that way. 5 months into this she developed lots of warts. I have been taking my daughter to a dermatologist to treat flat warts on her face and hands since.
