Common Questions and Answers about Aldara internal

aldara

Avatar m tn While the visible warts are indeed shrinking (almost gone entirely), i know that there are internal ones in my anus that are still there, whether or not the aldara is helping them is undetermined. I visited my dermatologist today and she just asked if it helped and when i told her yes, slowly but surely she gave me 3 repeats of aldara and said just keep going until they're gone. If the exterior warts are gone, how do I know if the internal ones arent still there?
Avatar n tn but since yours are internal, normal treatments like Aldara or other HPV topical treatments may be ineffective. The best thing to do would be to schedule an appointment with a proctologist and request for cryo, laser, or leep therapy to remove them. After that, you'll need to have annual anal pap smears to ensure that the cells in your anus do not undergo dysplasia...thus putting you at risk for anal cancer.
Avatar n tn I was given Aldara cream 3x a week and not my penis has open sores, dry skin and scabing. Even though all the tests were negative the doctor give me a script for a herpes med because he said the sores looked like herpes. I have not been with anyone in 7 weeks. Could these sores be from the aldara or do I have herpes even after a negative test result?
Avatar m tn Internal warts are usually removed with laser surgery, excision with anesthesia, or cryotherapy (frozen off). You cannot use Aldara on the internal ones. I do not believe that they are painful, either internally or externally but I am not sure. It is recommeded they are removed before they cause complications or become larger.
Avatar m tn I noticed a wart on my anus and internally (I am male) last March (it's been just over 6 months). I had them diagnosed and was prescribed aldara for the external ones. My dermatoligist froze off the existing external ones that developed a few weeks later but more came back. After having used it on and off for months I am currently free of the external ones...but the internal ones feel fairly widespread. I am waiting on a call from the office to schedule surgery for them.
Avatar n tn Other sites have claimed that internal use of Aldara may lead to autoimmune problems, so I got worried and stopped using it. These are a few medium sized gw on the lower inside of the vaginal lips, visible but close to lower hymenal opening.
Avatar f tn Hello I was diagnosed in July 2012 with anal warts, both external and internal. I had surgery in August and they started to return before the wounds were completely healed. I tried Aldara for 8 weeks and the warts kept growing larger. I then recieved TCA treatments and after 3 weeks the external warts are gone. My question is what would you recomend I do abaut the internal warts? I don't want to get surgery again because it was expensive and in effective.I would rather go with watchful waiting.

Avatar f tn Dear person, I have internal genital warts and am curious if the is any kind of home remedy or perscription oral treatment. I've had the HPV vaccine and I want to do all that I can to help fight it off, but I had it for over two years before I learned I have it.
Avatar n tn I have read on here and other sources that Aldara is good for the more external anal warts, but not really for internal ones. When I see the dermatologist again next week, should I try to get him to pursue a different course of treatment as opposed to just extending the Aldara prescription? Also, should I be worried right now that without Aldara in the meantime, I might get new warts popping up?
Avatar f tn I have been successfully using apple cider vinegar to treat external genital warts (after using Aldara with no noticeable improvements). Now I have discovered internal genital warts. Is it safe to use a tampon or cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar to treat them? Also, what are the possible complications of internal genital warts (other than discomfort during intercourse)?
Avatar m tn The newest one just looks like a slight red mark on the side of her left nostril where it attaches to the cheek. Dermatologist recommends Aldara 5% on that one because she's afraid it might grow internally and interfere with breathing. Is this a safe treatment? And also, she said that if she gets a 5th one, they should do a scan to see if there are internal hemagiomas. What do you thinK?
Avatar m tn I have read about alternative treatments like hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, garlic, or vitamin supplements. The problem is that mine are internal, in my vagina and anus. I will be able to see the doctor in 3 more months but that is a long time. I have also heard that they can go away on their own, but mine seem to be getting bigger and its been developing for a month now??
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with genital warts 2 years ago and used Aldara for a single external wart. The wart disappeared but returned in multiple sites. I attempted alternative herbs that I researched on the internet (Ashamed to get treatment, btw waste of time) and then gave up and went to my primary MD for a name of rectal surgeon who treats warts.
Avatar f tn I have been using Aldara for a few months now and have noticed no period. I mentioned to doctor and he looked at me like i was a weirdo, and proceeded to tell me its not internal med and no way it affects menstrual cycle. I don't drink, smoke, take any medications, and havn't had sex on 6 months. No chance im pregnant but did take test to rule that out of doctors mind.
Avatar n tn Someone else posed this: "I recently just had an HPV outbreak and I used the medicine aldaria. (excuse the spelling). It dries it out a lot, and makes the pain even worse because everytime I move or go pee it feels like its going to crack open because it's so dry. Is it okay to use a q-tip and put vaseline on it??? My friend once did this but I am nervous to try it." I'm having the same dryness problem.
Avatar f tn Medically free Except that I have noticed also losing weight last month about 4 killo And laps show Ca 10.3 What should I do next? MRI? Aldara? Biopsy unfortunately is difficult to do so here in my country due to lack of experience.

Avatar m tn Hi i was diagnosed with Anal warts and was prescribed with Aldara. My doctor didnt really elaborate on how many times i should apply it but i did 2x per week (mon and friday) since its too expensive! this was my before treatment pic http://s3.amazonaws.com/medhelp_images/user_photos/277373?1339513577 and this is my 1st week treatment http://s3.amazonaws.com/medhelp_images/user_photos/277374?
Avatar n tn Hello, i'm a 24 year old female recently diagnosed with genital warts and i've had them burnt off twice within the month. The doctor recently prescribed/recommended I begin using ALDARA and i was wondering whether or not (in your opinion) the benefits outweight the risks of using the cream.
Avatar m tn Since I am traveling oversees for several months, I self-diagnosed, and bought a 1-month supply of Aldara 5% Cream from an OTC pharmacy, and have been applying that following the directions in the product insert (3x/week, overnight). What seems odd is that the shape of the 'bumps' are flat, only slightly raised, flesh-toned (i.e.
Avatar n tn I was told I have a mild form (my PAP came back normal) of HPV and given Aldara for break outs. I've had a couple external warts which have gone away after applying Aldara. Other than that I really haven't had any trouble. I am in a monogamous relationship with my fiance (not the one who gave me HPV) and we've talked about it and he hasn't had any symptoms. We use condoms, but not 100% of the time.

Avatar n tn I am a male in my late 30s and I have been getting treated for HPV for over three years. In my case I have internal anal warts. I am wondering why my body hasn't supressed the virus. A lot of information I have read says your body should eventually do that and I do not have HIV. Do you have any explanation of why this is prolonged or if there is anything I can do to help my Immune system?
Avatar m tn A few days past when I read an article about the possibility of having an internal ones also. It compelled me check what's inside and indeed felt some small bumps. I got worried and went to the clinic back again. He tried to remove visible internal warts but I wasnt sure if that's the end of it. He prescribed me with Aldara cream and instructed me to apply it inside. When I got home, I tried to check and small bumps were still present.
Avatar n tn Have you used Aldara to treat hemangiomas in infants? Any treatment usage for different hemangiomas?
