Aldara how long

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara how long


Avatar n tn 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 im not using aldara anymore. it has left my penis very irritated and i was asking how long it would take for the irritation to go away?
Avatar m tn How did you apply it? Did you just put it on the spots or did you put it all over? Aldara can cause reactions like this, and therefore should only be used when you are certain its warts. You might need to get this checked by a doctor to rule out infection. If you hadn't applied aldara, I'd say get checked for herpes, but I doubt its herpes.
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 m tn my derm doc suggested some hydrocortisone for the previous burning red blotch which i started yesterday (not sure if its helping yet). I am just confused how this irritation has lasted so long and how another spot has seemed to flare up after over 3 weeks off the drug. can aldara cause permanent penile psoriasis to begin??? i cant have sex or masturbate or anything in over a month... i cant live with this and im losing hope. this is was worse than any genital wart.
Avatar n tn My question is can i put the Aldara on the mc bumps more than three times a week or no?Also my other question is how long does it take the Aldara to work.My Dr. had told me there very small so it shouldnt take long.
Avatar n tn 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 n tn How long after the last time you had sex were you tested for herpes? How did they test you? It's INCREDIBLY common to be misdiagnosed as having herpes when using aldara. It's very irritating to the skin. If you had a type specific herpes igg blood test 3 months after the last time you had sex - I'd assume it was from the aldara and not herpes.
Avatar m tn But the itching and burning is EXTREME to say the least and is a minute to minute struggle every day and is ruining my life. I am wondering how long to expect this to continue after I discontinue using the cream or any suggestions for relief until then. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.
Avatar m tn Hey all, So I have many very small HPV warts on my vulva. The doctor called it vulvar dysplasia, and he prescribed aldara cream 3 times a week because he said that since there are so many a laser would be very painful and that we should try to remove some with aldara first. I have a few questions about using aldara. 1) is it harmful to shave on off days from using aldara? 2) Can shaving make the warts worse? 3) Is sex okay when the cream is not on the skin? Thank you!
Avatar f tn Aldara is used for several skin conditions. Your doctor will tell you where to apply Aldara cream, and how often and for how long to apply it for your condition. Aldara should be applied just before bedtime and left on the skin for 6-10 hours. If your skin condition reappears you need to talk to your doctor.
Avatar n tn Does any one know if this stuff really works,or is there any pre-cautions or side affects that I should be aware of?How long does it take to see results?I was told to apply this cream three times a week.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Hello doc, I was diagnosed with genital warts and on Aldara cream for it. My wart went away quickly in about 2 weeks. Here’s my worry: I had mild skin irritation while I was on it, but a week after I had stopped the Aldara I developed a rash around my anus near where I had been using Aldara and I’m worried it’s herpes. It was a red rash. It itched, felt irritated, and the skin was shiny. I would compare it to mild sunburn. I never saw breaks in the skin: no blisters, ulcers, or scabs.
Avatar n tn I feel so ugly and I haven't had sex with my boyfriend in almost 6 months...That's how long i've had these warts and I can't seem to get rid of them. When some go, others appear...Pls help.
Avatar m tn Did you read his long and extensive thread? How was he mainly applying it?
Avatar m tn Hi, 'Individual molluscum lesions may go away on their own and are reported as lasting generally from 6 to 8 weeks, to 2 or 3 months. However via autoinoculation, the disease may propagate and so an outbreak generally lasts longer with mean durations variously reported as 8 months,to about 18 months,and with a range of durations from 6 months to 5 years. For mild cases, over-the-counter wart medicines, such as salicylic acid may shorten infection duration.
Avatar n tn You're right about it not being as big of a deal as people could make it, however it's dishonest to mislead people about what they're in for with Aldara. IT HURTS. Expect it to. Aldara attacks the skin cells, that's part of how it works. Even healthy, surrounding tissue, so be CAREFUL when applying. If the pain gets too bad, it is safe to apply topical burn cream with lidocaine, also recommended is "neosporin + pain relief" max. strength which you can get over the counter.
Avatar n tn A few months later the warts came back and I revisited the clinic and they were frozen once again, but this time I was given 'Aldara' cream to apply three times a week on the warts. I have visited the GUM clinic around four or five times since and been given the freezing treatment followed by Aldara cream and although every time I had the full STI testing this was found to be the only virus I had (or had symptoms for).
Avatar n tn He said he'd never seen such a severe reaction to Aldara.. He said for me to stop using Aldara which I already did. He sent me home with Lacoid Lipocream (hydrocortisone butyrate 0.1%) cream and told me to apply it to the "bump" 2x a day. He said to me that the bump could be a start of a cyst. He also cyrotherapyed off the two warts on both side of the "bump" this in of itself seem to irritate the "bump" and make it swell more. Well Dr.
Avatar n tn No, I meant Aldara might be the whole explanation. I'm not surprised if Aldara is making it worse.
535760 tn?1213894766 Still, I do not know how credible this information exactly is. I found using Aldara to clear up the majority of warts, and then using a different treatment (such as cryo) to clear any remaining warts seemed to be effective. I used a combination of TCA and Aldara, and have been wart free for a month now (took 3 months to entirely clear). Aldara has some discomfort associated with it, but I found it less painful than TCA (though much more itchy!).
Avatar n tn jpg This happened after using Aldara. How long does it take the blisters to recover once you stop using Aldera? Does the picture look similar to the symptoms you had seen? Thanks. Joe.
Avatar n tn it seems that i have more warts coming up and the ones i had frozen 2 weeks ago are coming back also( around the scar from freezing ) this normal ? how long does the cream take to become effective ? will it prevent more from coming in such a short time or does it take longer......thanks any help would be appreciated....
Avatar n tn gave me a RX for Aldara anyway but i am reluctant to use it since i am trying to conceive soon. Should i try apple cider vinegar instead to treat? Or how long after Aldara use before i should wait to conceive.
Avatar n tn I just would like some solid answers on this so, 1. how long should/could the warts stay (keep in mind im treating them!) 2. Does having sex with/without a condom make it worse? 3. once they are gone, can I take medication to prevent them coming back? I really, really appreciate any input back.
