Common Questions and Answers about Aldara instructions

aldara

Avatar n tn I was just prescribed Aldara cream for my genital warts and have a couple of questions. 1) My doctor told me to apply the cream all over the shaft of my penis & around the scrotum area - in order to help treat sub-clinical warts. Everything from the instructions on the cream to my reading on the internet says "apply directly to the warts and avoid contact with skin around the warts" What is your advice?
Avatar n tn One another suggestion is to apply some moisturizer or petrolium jelly on the skin surrounding the warts while applying the aldara on warts... remember, aldara is to be applied on warts only and should not come in contact with the healthy skin...
Avatar n tn This is no question but rather a clarification. I have been using aldara for about a month and a half, and judgeing by the topics, several others need some guidence. I caught Molluscum contagium, maybe from the gym, maybe from sex who knows, who cares. I noticed some very small hybrid of pimples and warts in my gentital area. So of course, like most of you, I freaked. I am a healthy 21 year old male who has had a fairly modest sexual life (less than 10 partners, no one night stands).
Avatar n tn To people who used aldara and got what the doctor says or you think look like mild, hardly painful, herpes-like, weepy open sores, please don't be afraid and get a test done to calm your mind. Also, use Aldara according to instructions. Don't overuse it and make sure you wash it off well the next morning. Also, I would prefer nitro freezing than using a chemical. Nitro freezing was absolutely painful and quick.

598912 tn?1219552112 I have hpv,and i had a reoccurence of gw so m doc 0rescribed aldara. ******* hell hole in a packet. after only s couple days of using it, yesterday my vagina lips swoll up along with the middle portion too. i began to walk funny because it would hurt to bump them together. i was at work still and needed to home asap.
Avatar n tn Is Aldara the best way to remove them? My gynecologist told me to use it when I insisted I wanted these removed. She gave me instructions to use the cream 3 times a week for 16 weeks. Should these be treated like genital warts if they are not? They skin tags are thin enough that I can pinch them off with my fingernails. Will this cream be a problem to apply due to how small they are? Is Aldara safe to use around the anus, where most of my tags are?
Avatar m tn I've had Hpv Genital warts for over a year now. I first went to Planned Parenthood to get them burned off and after awhile i couldn't take it no more and they were always coming back anyways, so i finally was able to aford the Aldara Cream "160 bucks!". I did what the instructions said to do and it hasn't done really nothing... so much for that! I heard about "warts No More Extra Strengh" and have heard good things about it.
Avatar m tn hey, google podofilox, and go to the official website, it SHOULD give you clear instructions on how to apply it. Thats what i did for Aldara and it was a massive help, although it didnt help and wound up getin them cut off. Hope this helps and good luck. Here, Ive gotton it for you.: Podofilox information for healthcare professionals and patients www.drugs.com/pro/podofilox.html - Cached - Similar Worried.
Avatar n tn I must say mine came back about 8 times, but a nurse told me because I was so stressed about it, it makes it harder for the immune system to kick in. After using Aldara now, they have stopped coming back. But if they do - I'll be ready for them. It will be ok, so many people have this, some just choose to ignore it - and really - who wants to talk about it over the dinner table? Stay positive. It will get better.
Avatar m tn Aldara will only clear up small MC bumps, not large MC bumps, which will have to be treated with freezing and/or other removal methods. Although I do intend to keep freezing them, I reached an agreement with the dermatologist that I would use Aldara in between appointments as discussed. He gave me a prescription and I now have Aldara. When i was talking to him about what you had said in regards to MC in general, He said the following.
Avatar m tn I had the itching for 6 months before I started to show visable warts, they put me on Aldara cream which was painful but it got rid of the warts in 1-2 weeks so I was pretty happy. I was diagnosed at about the end of Feb and so far i've had no reacurances but I am keeping in mind that it is likely for a second outbreak so I don't find myself feeling disapointed if I do find more! So I am still in the process of clearing.
Avatar n tn it seems i have some other areas on the shaft of my penis also that may be developing the samr type of spots....i am applying aldara cream every other day per instructions and am on day 4 of application....is it normal for more to show up while on this cream ? should i be worried and re-visit the dermotologist ? starting to get concerned as i saw some pretty scary pictures online of out of control growths......
Avatar n tn People usually start to notice a change after around 6 weeks (it should say the precise time frame in the instructions) and I know 6 weeks sounds a long time, but when I used aldara it literally took me about 2 weeks (Which I didn't think was possible) it also took my partner around that time too. However remember what I said about bodies reacting differently. You are bound to feel the way you do. I was borderline distraught when I was diagnosed, but now it is such a casual thing in my life.
Avatar n tn I found 7 more in the past week, two are in the same area (leg) I had frozen off in June. I have had them frozen off, burned off, and use aldara. I also tried an essential oil treatment. I go back to the dr this week. She promised to burn more off if the aldara didn't do it. I have many bumps from the molluscum where I used the aldara. I wonder if I will ever have smooth skin again. I am going to ask about laser treatment if the bumps don't go away.
Avatar m tn (no HIV test) The doc gave her pills and she was re tested for chlamydia and was neg.(4 months ago we both developed HPV(warts)and have been given aldara to clear them up.
Avatar m tn * Podofilox, or Condylox * Imiquimod, or Aldara A doctor can show you how to apply these treatments. Podofilox is used for about four weeks. It works by destroying the wart tissue. Research shows that about 45% to 90% of warts are cleared, but in 30% to 60% of cases, the warts can come back. Imiquimod boosts the immune system so it fights off the virus. Clearance rates range from 70% to 85%, but in 5% to 20% of cases the warts come back.
Avatar n tn , scraping off by a health professional, which is less painful than it sounds), electrocautery, or freezing. Imiquimod (Aldara) often works, but is slower than the other methods. 8) There are no OTC remedies that I know of. To repeat the bottom line: I reemphasize that I do not know that you have MC, and that you need to see a health care provider for diagnosis and treatment advice.
Avatar n tn Hi AJ My physician has precribed Aldara cream for the Warts and also applied some cautic solution using a cotton swab for treatment of the warts. Since then it is causing a slight burning anf itching sensation in that area. is it a common symptom or could be bit of chemical allergy due to the caustic solution?
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 n tn The instructions recommended applying it twice a day but i was lazy/busy and only applied it a couple times a week. It worked!!! it took about a month and made my skin dry and peal a bit but i am completely free of those horrible things now!! Tazorac Gel!!
Avatar m tn We send the GcMAF out, with ice to keep it cool, by international courier We will then send you an email to give you a tracking number so you know when to expect it. We can take credit cards over the phone and we guarantee delivery to most countries. After the first two days you should expect to lose activity at the rate of 2 percent a day in transit if you are outside the EU. In summer it may be warm on arrival.
Avatar n tn My last one showed me as having VIN2 which my oncologist/gyno wanted me to use ALDARA Cream for 3 months, I tried it but i couldnt function with all the side effects, So after much reading as much as i could find on HPV and VIN i started taking the supplement DIM, thought it was helping some but now I have the burning back again and am afraid I will have to go in and have another biopsy again. I hate this. How come so many of us never heard of this before.
