Common Questions and Answers about Aldara lips

aldara

Avatar n tn Hello Everyone: I have been taking Aldara cream for just over a month now to treat HPV genital warts. The cream worked successfully on the warts on my anus almost immediately. However, I have a number of other warts around my vagina (mostly on the outer lips) that have been less responsive to the cream. I know that you can use the cream for up to 16 weeks and I have only been using it for 5 weeks, but I'm really nervous about these other warts not going away.
Avatar n tn I have been using Aldara for my genital warts for about 3 weeks now. Some are going away and in the process it burns and itches. My vaginal lips are beginning to get red. Around my vaginal opening there are some warts that are bigger. The cream doesnt seem to be affecting them at all. And I noticed that a few more seem to have came out. I have 1 week left to take it then in 2 weeks I go to my doctor. I don't understand why it is doing this.
Avatar n tn I have one at the opening of the vaginal and a few on the outer lips of the vagina. I have a large cluster of them around my anus (very embarassing I know), which are very uncomfortable and make it difficult to go to the bathroom. I was prescribed with Aldara Cream and I just started using it. I'm wondering if anyone else has had experience with this cream and its effectiveness on genital warts.
Avatar f tn I have genital HPV and I was treating the warts using Aldara. Applied a lot of the cream Monday to the outside of lower labia minora. Wednesday the labia was hard, swollen and really sore. Friday the swelling was reduced and in it place were 2 sore lesions located just inside the labia. I am now convinced it is herpes from looking at pictures online and reading the symptoms. I am also experiencing tingling down there too!
Avatar n tn Or maybe I just have a common strain of the papillomavirus that will go away. 2. Is it possible, I just got common warts on my lips from her lips? 3. Neither of the dermatologists or the doctor mentioned anything about me having an STD or STI even after me telling them my story and examining me, including my genital region. Both dermatologists did say the lips were contagious but when I called the first dermatologist with questions he said it was fine to kiss now and resume sexual activity.
Avatar m tn I know it sounds very dumb, but is it possible that the use of aldara no where near by lips is still causing this? I don't know what else it could be or what is causing the pinkish ring. Can someone please help me with some insight? Thank you very much.

Avatar n tn said it was contagious and could spread to other parts of her body or to someone else. She prescribed Aldara 5% Cream. It comes in 24 small application tubes at a cost of $639.00. Can anyone tell me the name of this condition? Thanks!
Avatar n tn , prior to any visible hint that they might be in the offing) I gave my daughter and wife several kisses on the lips upon parting their company or as part of the usual morning greetings. All kisses have been closed-mouth. 1) IF I do have genital warts rising on my lips, what is the likelihood that I have trasmitted the infection to them? 2) IF I have communicated the HPV infection, when can my wife and child anticipate seeing visible symptoms?
Avatar n tn I have had external warts around my anus since July. Aldara was great in the beginning, but it seems to have stopped working. Now I notice a rather large wart on the inside. Should I get it treated or wait to see what it does? What kind of doctor does a girl go see to get an anal wart removed? Thanks in advance for the help.
Avatar n tn I had them frozen off to only return within a month or two. So I decided to try the prescription drug Aldara on the advice of a dermatologist after he tried applying some similar acting agent product in the office with limited results after 5 weekly visits. Within 1 week of treatment my genitals became extremely sensitive and red, I also experienced herpes like outbreaks on my lips and a general feeling of tiredness and malaise.
Avatar m tn I am sad and depressed because my ob made me feel like a **** and didn't really say anything except that I shouldn't have slept around and that I shouldn't have sex ever again. She subscribed aldara .5% cream and in have been using this med for a week now. I have severe itching and more warts have showed up on my labia and around the lips of my vagina. I don't know how long it takes for this cream to work. I just want the warts gone.
Avatar n tn I had a few bumps on vagina lips...Dr, used a cream and they went away except one..right in the middle of the vagina and bittucks...seemed to become irritated and swollen. I called back and got a script for Aldara...this seems to be irretating it even more. I do not think it is a wart..looks like extra skin under vagina lips....any suggestion or experience? Thanks.

Avatar f tn I have 4 growths 2 larger and 2 smaller, she ruled out Herpes and was left believing it was either Molluscum or Gential Warts. She prescribed Aldara to me and I have been using it for the past 3 weeks which have made the bumps much smaller. I was also tested for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia, both tested negative. Sround the same time I had a medium to light grayish discharge that had a fishy odor especially after I showered. I've had no pain in this time.
Avatar n tn I was not concerned about the irritation, thinking it was just normal and would pass in time, but I became concerned as a line of small whitish bumps developed around my lips, gathering at the corners. Then thoroughly alarmed, I sought medical help and was examined by a gynecologist. He told me that he could see no visible signs of herpes on the vaginal area, but took a swab and said he would test me. When I pointed out the bumps on my lip he suggested a slight irritation due to sun exposure.
Avatar n tn Hello, Two years ago I was diagnosed w/ genital warts (just one, actually) and had it treated by cryotherapy. That summer more warts broke out, and I took Aldara under the guidance of my physician. that seemed to clear up most of them. I had some smaller outbreaks in the coming years, usually corresponding to stress. I had some extra aldara and used it, normally it worked OK, but it still left small warts occasionally.
Avatar m tn Also, I have started noticing small white bumps on the inside, crease, of my lips. I am scared and worried that either the infection as spread or, worse, I could have herpes! Could you offer me any assitance with this? Is what I have indeed herpes? Can the infection spread from my anus to my mouth or to other areas of my body? Do you know of any over the counter medication I can purchase for this?!?
Avatar m tn Well anyways went to planned parenthood here in town and the nurse said it was a genital wart and the red little bumps were other warts that may form or wont form but it doesn't look like anything i saw in pictures for genital warts because it is really thin and flat and not cauliflower shaped. The nurse told me about treatments and recommended and aldara type cream she said it was the best way to boost my immune system. So i went to a urologist and got a second opinion.

Avatar f tn Hi Grace, she did a pap test for HPV testing and she prescribed aldara. HPV testing is so expensive, i dont know if there's a test for herpes as well here too. I am afraid I will be deported. And I am in a muslim country. They did blood test, but the nurse just told me CBC, they can't detect any disease such as herpes or HIV?

Avatar f tn There were also other bumps that she stated were ingrown hairs from shaving. I got a perscription for Aldara and applied it as I was instructed to the area near my vagina opening. It went away in about 2-3 weeks. The have recently come back. This time more noticeable. I could feel 3 small bumps between my anus and vagina. I have been applying Aldara again. I also don't have the best immune system at the moment... but that is a whole other story that I am trying to work out...
Avatar n tn Aldara 5% Cream, Metronidazole .75% Gel 70G, and Cephalexin 500mg Capsules. I met with her doctor (before my diagnosis), and her doctor assured me that my wife was being treated for something that I was not in danger of contracting. My wife and I range in having sex from maybe 3 times a week, (typically on the same day), to 4 times a month. We don't use condoms, we seldom if ever kiss and we don't practice oral sex. This last time we did kiss, a lot.
Avatar m tn That same night I also received unprotected oral sex from a man for a very brief period of time. He had no noticeable lesions or outbreaks on his lips. Now to my symptoms which I am pretty sure are herpes related. Two days later while masturbating I started to feel a little pain on the shaft of my penis, low and be hold it was a sore.
Avatar m tn P Anywho, I've finally gotten over the whole "ohmigawd I have HPV, my life is ruined, I should go live off as a hermit somewhere in the mountains" stage of my life and have begun to slowly "creep out my shell," so-to-speak. All because I'm fancy for a girl, naturally. Now, obvious conflicting emotions of "wanting to be with her" and "keeping her ten feet away" aside, I do have something new that nags at the back of my mind; possible oral HPV?
Avatar n tn in my face and specifically my lips, I have had new concerns that I feel need to be addressed. I have written down a few questions and I hope that you can help me with them. Before we begin, I want to thank you in advance for your time. 1) Is there a treatment for M.C. lesions on the lips? 2) Can I spread M.C. to a partner through kissing? (having lesions on my lips) 3) I have had M.C. for over two years, will my body eventually mount a response and rid itself of the virus?
Avatar n tn It started from my chin in btween my bottom lip and beard area on the right side. He prescribed Aldara and it cleared up. I don't know how it got on my face, I think from shaving. He said my girlfriend should have it too. At the time I was with her for for about 5 months. I was too much in shock I guess to really question him at the time like I am now but now its on the left side of my face near my mustache.
Avatar f tn However I discontinued aldara and then started using podofilox solution and it helped a little I'm still having outbreaks it's been 9 months now but the outbreaks are single warts not in clusters sometimes one will appear on the right side of the lips then on the left side of the lips. I tend to experience a outbreak once or twice a month I am using podofilox 0.5% solution why am I experience outbreaks like this when will these warts stop forming any suggestions.
