Aldara genital warts

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara genital warts


Avatar n tn Hi, I was diagnosed with genital warts and given a prescription of Aldara. After using Aldara for 8 weeks or so the warts went away and my doctor said that they were gone and I could stop using Aldara. About a week ago I noticed that two warts were back and my doctor said to continue use of Aldara. I was wondering how long Aldara takes to get rid of warts and when they do go away, how often may the warts reappear?
Avatar m tn Hi I've been using Aldara for 3 applications now for what I believe are genital warts under my foreskin just below the ridge, they are only small. Up to now nothing has happened, no reaction, no itching no reddening of area nothing at all. I was expecting some sort of reaction or change with it being such a strong medicine. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn Just started a treatment of Aldara today. I always seem to have a few small genital warts on me. Does anyone know what I can expect. I am 31 and healthy in every way. I have been receiving cryotherapy for 3 years and they always come back. I was told that Aldara will help get my immune system involved in fighting the virus so I will have a better chance of losing the warts. Has anyone out there used thus treatment ?
Avatar m tn What are the chances of Genital warts returning after successfully using aldara. I have read that since it is an immune booster that it generally has a very lo recurrence rate but i would like to know if my lifestyle has any influence on that. I am a 24 yr old male who stays in very good shape and eats very healthy. I hardly drink alcohol but i occasionally smoke marijuana and would like to know if that has an adverse effect on my situation.
Avatar f tn I don't want to go off half cocked and tell future partners that I have had genital warts if it's not true. Is there any way I can find out for sure if I am infected with HPV? I know I can get a pap but will that be able to tell me if the kind I have is what caused the warts or would it just generally say that I have it but they don't know which strain?
Avatar f tn I'm not sure why you were given aldara for pinched skin. it's a treatment for genital warts and molluscum. Aldara is very irritating to the genital skin. It's very common for the symptoms you've described to occur. ruling out herpes is never a bad idea but odds are it's due to the aldara. I'd get a 2nd opinion on the area you were using the aldara on and not continue using it until you get a better diagnosis than what you were evidently given the first time.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with HPV for the past 4 months, and it has been a serious struggle. I have gone to get the warts burned off about 5-6 times, and they keep coming back. My doctor put me on Aldara, but I am having SERIOUS side effects. It says for me to put it on the area once a night before I go to bed, but I started having redness and irritation. I thought that just meant that it was working, so I was off it for a day and went back on it for 2.
Avatar n tn I'm wondering if anyone else has had experience with this cream and its effectiveness on genital warts. These warts seem to be very stubborn and I have been to the doctor on numerous occations to have them frozen off, but that is very painful and embarassing so I am now trying the cream. I just want to know what I can expect from this. Thanks ladies...
Avatar f tn Im taking Aldara or m GW its been a lil ova a week and it just started burning around my out breaks is this normal like when water hits it something like dat. is this normal should it burn. its like a burning itching feeling. should i call my doctor or is this suppost to happen?
Avatar m tn I have been using aldara for about a month on my genital warts and have had no burning or tenderness that I have heard people talk about on these forums. It has been working great and I am noticing my warts are starting to shrink. The other morning after using my aldara cream overnight I noticed a lump under my skin where I applied some aldara. It is very tender to touch and very noticeable.
Avatar n tn The underlying virus is never completely eliminated, however, and genital warts may reappear even after treatment. Genital warts may disappear without treatment, but sometimes eventually develop a fleshy, small raised growth. There is no way to predict whether they will grow or disappear. Depending on the size and location of the wart, and other factors, a doctor will offer one of several ways to treat them.
Avatar f tn i have been diagnosed with warts which appeared suddenly after i went of the pill, i have become paranoid about this and it the doc has given me aldara which i used and was sucessful except on 2 stubborn warts but they have now appeared in other places i have ordered more aldara. I would like to know how internal warts are treated and if i take better care of myself if my body could fight them off on its own??
Avatar m tn She diagnosed me with genital warts however she referred me to a gyno who also said i have genital warts and prescribed aldara cream. So i began using aldara cream, however on the 3rd week i got severe bad reactions. After every application the wart would actual get bigger in size and i would get tingly feelings in my genitals and due to that i wouldnt be able to sleep at night.
Avatar m tn Are there any natural products that effectively get rid of genital warts? Any truth to lysine effectiveness?
Avatar f tn I recently noticed small warts on my penis and went to the doc and received aldara and the doctor didn't say much and certainly didn't seem concerned. The warts don't itch but scrotum does. No relief yet since it has only been one week but I am a worrier so I would like to ask these questions..... I have only had sex with one woman for the last 3.5 yrs, did she give to me given her cervical dysplagia diagnosis 2 yrs ago? She's had no visible issues.
Avatar m tn Could it be human papiloma virus that cause genital warts? Is this Zovirax + antibiotics take care of this? I'm afraid I have infected my partner, I'm really worried.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with genital warts in 1999 I was treated with aldara the warts didn't come back until years later and the outbreaks weren't that bad. The outbreaks would come every other year and go away without treatment. However, in August 2008 I started getting outbreaks and I thought it was genital warts but it turned out to be genital herpes and I am still having outbreaks my last outbreak was in November but I am on suppressive theraphy.
Avatar m tn At first I thought they were pimples since I usually get a couple from time to time, but it's been 2 weeks now since they first appeared and it doesn't look like they're going anywhere. They look like 2 small genital warts. I have a very active sexual life. In 2010 I had sex with 30 different prostitutes. I ALWAYS wear condom for vaginal sex and I have tested for HIV in November and it came up negative. Anyway, I don't know what to do about these 2 red bumps.
Avatar n tn // It does say not to use the product on Genital Warts. I have a few questions: 1. Why would this product not work on HPV? 2. Would this be any different than Cryo therapy? 3. Is the warning there just to make sure you see a Dr. for an accurate diagnosis? 4. What would be the downside of trying? 5. What do you think? Thanks very much!!
