Common Questions and Answers about Aldara genital warts success

aldara

Avatar f tn I have been experiencing outbreaks since august sometimes using treatments. However when I was first diagnosed with genital warts I used aldara for them and never experienced outbreaks like I do today. I would experience outbreaks probably once a year and they would go away without treatments and then no more for about a few years. I'm not sure why I am experiencing outbreaks so frequently.
Avatar m tn Hello, Research had showed that some patients had benefitted after isotretinoin for genital warts but it is not the commonly followed treatment. For small warts several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts.
Avatar f tn i was told by a doctor at my gum clinic that the chances of genital warts coming back after a year are very low, but they have now returned after treatment over a year ago...does this mean im never going to be free of them?
Avatar m tn I have recently been diagnosed with Genital warts. My GP started me on Aldara 5%. I have 2 starting and now i have about 15. Im getin depressed over this as i cant see any improvement and started a new relationship the same week i was diagnosed. I have of course talked to him about it and he has been checked out at the local STD clinic and is clear. Im so upset about this im not sleepin. Has anyone any advise as im considering getin them frozen off.
Avatar m tn Genital warts usually do not cause any form of cancer. Over 90% of genital wart cases are caused by strains 6 &11 which are not cancerous. There are certain strains of genital warts that can increase cancer risk, but the vast majority of warts do not.
Avatar n tn I have had genital warts on the base of my shaft for 5 years now.
Avatar n tn 25 year old male. Genital warts had somehow spread to my anus. Awful and embarrassing. I tried Veregen but all it did was explode the number of perianal warts. The packaging says it could increase their number, but I really wasn't ready for that. It went from 4 or 5, to by my new doctor's count, more than 20. So we tried cryotherapy and a Rx of Aldara.
Avatar n tn First do you have venereal warts?Plane warts can even come from a towel,thouh not so common at this site, still do occur.So instead of a blame game look along these lines,possibly you can win her back, if you are keen.
535760 tn?1213894766 Not wanting to experience this again i would like to try another option because i still have a few tiny warts left and noticed a couple new ones. Is aldara the best way to go? or maybe even cryo? I read aldara is very effective and even builds an immunity?
Avatar n tn My Penis is covered in bumps and i am told that it looks like genital warts. my girlfriend was cheeting on me last year before we broke up and i think i got HPV from her. That is what is causing the warts. IS THERE ANY OVER THE COUNTER meds or crream i can get to make them go away? Are there any home remides? Some say lots of garlic tablets will get rid of them.. Some say treat them with white vinegar for 20 min 3 times a day, the acid in the vinegar is sapose to make them go away.
Avatar f tn that I am HPV + after noticing 2 small warts on my labia majora. A week after the cauterization the warts came back and since it is so expensive I prefer not to have it removed. Is this a better plan or should I cauterized it again?
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 So, I am a 24 year old male who was diagnosed with HPV/genital warts three years ago. At the time of diagnoses I was in college and led a pretty unhealthy lifestyle: poor diet, smoked marijuana, and drank heavily. Combined with that I feel the occurance of these warts directly coincided with a time of heavy stress in my life. The first course of treatment was Aldara, which did not work. Although, I didn't change my lifestyle at the time.
Avatar m tn so i have this very extremely stubborn genital wart, on my scrotum. i get other warts here and there(mostly if i have been eating alot of junk and they come off with ACV after 2 days anyway).....but this one motherf&%$r wont seem to go away.....i freezed it off twice at the doc, it didnt work.....came back...acv for 2 weeks and nothing....didnt even turn black....it has gotten about 4 times the size.....since then.......
Avatar m tn I had a lot better luck with the Aldara when I first burned the warts off with salicylic acid. The Aldara wasn't helping as well before using the acid, especially in certain areas. Yes, it's a bit more pain but it helped me. You could also add Low Dose Naltrexone to your medication. It helps boost the immune system. In your case, I really don't think it would be enough of a benefit on it's own. I tried it with a lot of herbal immune boosters alone and I didn't get any results.

Avatar f tn Genital warts should not be treated by over the counter or over the internet products.
Avatar n tn We've chased all sorts of treatments with nothing lasting very long. Do you know whether Aldara could offer some hope? I understand that it was originally for genital warts but some skin cancer patients have had some success. Any thought and comments about this or any other treatment would be most appreciated. Thank you!!!!
Avatar m tn The better is to seek treatment for the warts... The internal warts are usually treated with laser treatment (warts burnt) or cryotherpy (warts are frozen off)... It is good to help your immune system to boost with vitamins and other herbs but there is no such study available that proves its complete effectiveness in treating the warts...
Avatar f tn a podophyllotoxin cream that comes with the trade name of condylox or wartec is usually recommended for genital region but you should discuss with your doctor what is right for you... Aldara is also a recommended treatment for genital warts... Apple cidar vinegar can also be used but it requires extra care during application... there are many herbal treatments available but those require a lot of time to heal the lesion...
Avatar m tn So, my question is for those males out there that might have had bowenoid papulosis/HPV type 16, did anyone see success from using Aldara? I would really like to give it the full 12 weeks of treatment before considering other options (Condolyx, Trichlororacetic acid, Cryo, etc). I would truly appreciate any feedback.
Avatar n tn She even inserted her finger and said that what she felt was completely normal and that I was completely healthy and do not have genital warts. Have you ever heard of a $3500 procedure to remove genital warts or was this doctor trying to rip me off? Why would he call a hospital to get a rate? I thought this was an in-office procedure. (this rate "included anesthesia".. local or general.. I have no idea, but am scared to find out!
Avatar m tn Ive read online that the vaccine may help prevent future occurences of HPV if already infected..... has anyone had success with this? Are their any men who had a warts outbreak, had the vaccine, and have gotten fewer if not no outbreaks afterwards? I read a post by a woman in another forum stating she did nothing but got the vaccine after she was infected, and the warts slowly began to stop appearing....I dont see why the vaccine cant help you build antibodies, even after initial infection......
Avatar n tn 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." It actually seemed like a pretty substantial benefit in the study that Terri Warren published.
Avatar m tn I was wondering if anyone with an HPV strain that causes genital warts has had any success taking Goldenseal by adding it to their daily regimen? Does anybody think I would be overdoing it by adding Goldenseal to my current daily regimen? Obviously, negative side-effects are not welcomed. Also, does anyone think I may be doing too much already? Should I lessen my daily regimen of vitamins/supplements?
Avatar n tn I've had genital warts for almost two years now. I've been in a monogamous relationship for almost four years. I never had any signs of HPV prior to my present relationship. My partner and I are attempting to get pregnant and have consequently not used protection. However, as one might predict, the GW has made this difficult. I am presently using Aldara with marginal success (if any) and have had some warts frozen off yet they seem to return or new ones appear.
736575 tn?1288906158 So it just cleared away on its own after you had it removed? I'm very scared, I was diagnosed with HPV genital warts and I dealing with those with the Aldara cream. I am told it'll never go away and no matter what I will pass it on during sex. I am scared I will never find someone who will want to be with me. I feel disgusting. I only lost my virginity a year ago and I got an STD. I am 21 and scared.
Avatar f tn I dont think i will find another girl that i will love as much as her and she doesnt even know it. SO, to anyone who has the genital warts i feel your pain and it sucks ***. i may or may not lose something that i love and i dont want her to feel that i was lying to her. I just dont want her to go through what i had to go through with these things and it is worse for a girl. My main plan was to get rid of these things visibly so she couldnt see them and then have sex.
