Aldara lotion

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara lotion


Avatar m tn hey im a 20 yr old male. i used aldara for genital warts and it has only made my life worse. i used it for about a month and a half and been off it for about 2 weeks. anyways it did not diminish my warts AND MOST IMPORTANTLY my penis is STILL really red and with a burning sensation and sensitivity down the shaft and base (which is not even where i applied the drug!). I have tried vitamin E oil but have now stopped cuz idk if it helped or made it worse......
Avatar m tn I have been using aldara for about a month on my genital warts and have had no burning or tenderness that I have heard people talk about on these forums. It has been working great and I am noticing my warts are starting to shrink. The other morning after using my aldara cream overnight I noticed a lump under my skin where I applied some aldara. It is very tender to touch and very noticeable.
2206935 tn?1373642205 i have anal warts been 6 weeks using aldara area is red and is burning,i cant sleep because of this a normal reacton and will it go??
Avatar n tn I and others have experienced issues with Aldara before where it causes pain. Since the lotion is super potent, it's easy to get it on your testicles and it will cause burning. Did the burning go away after you stopped using the Aldara?
Avatar n tn 1)Is it possible to be getting results from Aldara without seeing any irritation to the warts that were not treated with cryo? Is it normal to use cryo and aldara together? What is the normal process of aldara because my penis is not red all over like the "during treament" on the aldara website? 2) There is some painful blistering on my scrotum from the aldara (not that I had visible warts there it is just where my penis lay after I put on the aldara) this normal?
Avatar f tn My doctor has agreed they are skin tags but has said they are viral infection and related to herpes? Is this correct? She has prescribed some lotion which should burn them off? I'm now concerned as all internet sites indicated them to just ben skin tags which occur after pregnancy....which I have not been? Confused!!!
Avatar n tn I was using Aldara because the PA. at the clinic I go to prescribed it to me. The lotion worked and made my warts go away. Now, the warts are back. I am somewhat confused because I wonder if there is anything that can help make them go away for good.
Avatar m tn Apply warm compresses,Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lump persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a gynecologist as you may need incision and drainage. Also then herpes sores should be ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn He said i had something from sexual contact( he used a medical term) and he gave me 3 months worth of aldara so right away i think oh great gential warts. So i use it for 3 months. Nothing happen didnt even clear one. So i go back and they give me stuff for an infection i got. Redness, skin peeling etc. so i use it and it looked like it worked after a week and now that i stopped using it its back again. I was wondering if it could possibly be irriatation from something?
Avatar n tn I was treating warts with aldara earlier this summer and I think it might have triggered this rash. I discontinued the aldara. When i discontinue the aldara the skin is red, irritated, ulcerated and flaky. I've been putting some lubriderm lotion on my penis/scrotum but i'm worried about autonioculating myself with hpv or hsv. Sometimes from using a certain soap the area becomes incredibly irritated and painful.
Avatar m tn I've had genital warts burnt off underneath the head of my penis, I've had reactions to the aldara cream but now those are pretty much under control. My concern now is that when I pull my foreskin back to clean myself, it ******* hurts. its like its swollen, somewhat-dry, and it hurts. I've heard horror stories of men having to be circumcized because of complications with the foreskin. Should I be putting on lotion? anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.
Avatar n tn i have moluscum contagiosum and i use cortizone cream to reduce the itch and he can use the calamine lotion you would put on poison ivy can stop the itch too.. i have also been using this cream called triamcinolone acetonide ointment USP 0.1% im not sure if its actually working to get rid of it but ive noticed its slowing going away and i dont itch. you can also get cream called aldara.. its used for genetal warts but it does stop the itch.
Avatar m tn I have also tried the following prescription creams Salex, Retin-A Micro and Aldara. Aldara worked for a couple of weeks but then it started attacking parts of my skin that I did not have warts. I started getting blisters and fevers. I had to get these blisters treated because they were oozing. I went to urgent care since my other Doctors weren’t available. They prescribed Floucinonide which stopped the burning and the blistering.
Avatar m tn The itching was so intense sometimes, I didn't want to leave the house, because I knew I couldn't scratch. Luckily for me though, after I used aldara and the warts went... so did the itching. The itching was twice as intense when I was on the treatment, but then one day it was gone. Maybe for you it will just disapear too. When I was experiencing the itching though, I used non perfumed moisturizers especially for itch relief which helped a lot.

Avatar n tn The doctor prescribed me aldara to treat it. I used the cream for a period of about 3 months. During the treatment the skin on my penis and scrotum got real red and irritated. I used the cream twice a day and i also showered twice a day during the treatment. Well when i eventually stopped using aldara the dry red irritated skin never went away.
Avatar n tn Also I thought I might mention that I've applied Lotrimin moisturizing lotion to these spots as I figured the vitamin-e might help my skin heal but I don't know if this is just wishful thinking. Thanks.
359937 tn?1220987451 It is similar to freezing in that it destroys the skin around the wart, but it is less painful when it is applied. It may hurt a little once the blister forms though. Aldara (imiquimod) is a newer, non-destructive treatment for warts. It is applied to the warts three times a week, either with or without an occlusive dressing. You might need to soak and then pare or trim down the wart and then apply Aldara for it to work well.
Avatar f tn He is using a laser to remove the wartsand each time he do just a bit .. He gave me lotion to put 5 times a day each day .. And im afraid that he is like only fooling me aroud and do ot because of the money he has good recommendations but the treatment seem to be so long and i just feel bad that i got into it im really sad ..
Avatar f tn I have these very small red bumps around my vestibule. They are just a few of them and they aren't symmetrically distributed. I wouldn't even notice them if they weren't so painful to touch, which makes sex impossible. I have been to several doctors and their opinions are controversial, the one says "Yes, they are warts.
Avatar n tn Secondly get a good body cream or lotion. Mix 3 oz of body lotion with 1 tablespoon of tea tree oil. Apply this every time you take a shower down there. I'm not going to say you'll never get another breakout (you will with any treatment whether its a home remedy or from the doc) what I am saying is that for no more then ten dollars (instead of a thousand) you can clear the warts up yourself. Emotionally GW can reek havok.
Avatar n tn I got them about end of fed start/mid march and then about march april it must of been i started getting scabies. started at my hands and moved else where like groin area and buttocks and such. i was using Aldara for the Genital Warts and at early stages of scabies was told it was ezcema or something so I was using diprosone..
Avatar f tn She also has eczema, which I know can make it worse. We went to the pediatrician and she prescribed Aldara to apply 3 times a week, only on the bumps. She also told me to continue using the Cortizone 10 every day, along with lotion to help with itching. Now...I'm wondering if this is really going to work, since I'll I've heard is that we have to "wait it out"....but it's just getting worse. It's painful for her, because of the eczema and really unsightly.
Avatar m tn but i have not been sexually active for a long time for the reason that i developed ppp and at first i didn't know what it was... 2 weeks back i was prescribed aldara cream to make the ppp warts go away... i was still masturbating while using the cream so i don't know weather that was the cause of this or if it may just be a friction sore but there are is a red spot on the crown of my penis and i can also see what might be a sore or a blister...
Avatar m tn I have had anal warts before, (over 5 years ago, treated with Aldara, never had a recurrence of them), and because of this previous history I immediately went to my doctor. My doctor however, was unable to determine if they were genital warts because they were so tiny, and didn't give me any idea of what else they could be. Her advice was to wait about a month to see if they would grow or multiply.
Avatar m tn U can get the warts/bumps removed by either freezing them [dr office] or aldara cream [prescroption] or some kind of laser or something [at drs office] =/ If mine r hpv confirmed i'm gonna go w whatev the derm says. I don't have any on shaft like urs thogh but since i'm cut i see the ones on head ev time i do anything!! Ugh. SO good luck man i will let u know what derm says..=] Don't worry to much, hope ur doing good.
Avatar n tn I only use hypoallergenic products on my skin that don't normally give me problems (dove sensitive skin soap, cetaphil lotion, tide free detergent). The small itchy blisters are now showing up on my hands also, on and between my fingers, although they are not red. Sorry to ramble on, but at this point I'm not sure what's really a symptom. Please help me!
Avatar f tn He looked inside and looked at the head of my penis and said it was probably a yeast infection that cleared up and now I’m just left with over sensitive nerves. He said to apply some unscientific lotion and see him in two months. He said time will heal it. Well it’s not getting better at all and is causing me extreme distress and depression. I feel like something else is wrong. He didn’t even notice the white skin in the urethra. Is that normal? I’m so scared that this is something really bad.
Avatar m tn I let a street worker anally finger me with some lotion and salivia for lube. I have been treating my internal warts for about a year with Aldara; yes I know it's way too long of a time to use it, but it was working. For the last few months, I have been noticing a green mucous-like substance wrapped around my stool. Also, the other day when I was applying the Aldara cream, a large amount of this mucous discharge came out of my anus.
Avatar m tn itried to hide it from my wife coz i don't want her to worry and be ashamed of me but due to changes in our sex life, we started to have marital problems that lead me into telling her that i think the penile skin problems i got could be a reason why i can'y maintain penile erection for long..and as of maybe march of this year i had it again until now.. .
