Aldara no prescription

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara no prescription


Avatar n tn Hi, I was diagnosed with genital warts and given a prescription of Aldara. After using Aldara for 8 weeks or so the warts went away and my doctor said that they were gone and I could stop using Aldara. 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 n tn 1 I went for a follow-up appointment because I noticed a small, almost pinpont, growth in the general area of the wart in addition to what I believed to be a small scar from the cryo. The nurse practioner said she wasn't sure it was a reoccurance and gave me an Aldara prescription. She said to use it only if the bumps in question got bigger. Two months passed and the pinpoint size bump seemed the same but the scar-like growth did seem a bit larger.
Avatar m tn Eventually I had them checked, they were warts and I had them removed and was put on Aldara. I used what my dermatologist gave me but I had no insurance so I never actually filled the prescription. The warts came back months later. I thought about the laser surgery which would be very expensive but the doctor put me back on the Aldara, which I filled this time, hoping it would take care of the problem.
Avatar m tn I'm using aldara right now too, I am a female but my skin has started burning and bleeding too, I talked to my doctor and he said it's normal.
Avatar n tn Ok, so I've been putting up with on again, off again itching for months on my labia, near my vaginal opening. Never "diagnosed" with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch.
Avatar n tn If so, fill the Aldara prescription and use it as directed. If not, or if she wasn't sure, using Aldara might just confuse things: If the bumps persist, they could still be warts (because Aldara works only 60-70% of the time); and if they go away, they might not be warts. If your doctor is uncertain, consider getting a second opinion, e.g. from your local health department STD clinic or perhaps a family planning clinic like Planned Parenthood.
Avatar n tn I'm also puzzled by her decision to give you a prescription for Aldara if the diagnosis of warts isn't definite; she must believe you have genital warts. Perhaps she is using it as a "test of cure", but that isn't generally recomended. (If the bumps respond, they were warts; if not, they weren't.
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 and this is my 1st week treatment
Avatar f tn Ask your doctor for Aldara--this is a prescription that can be used at home to clear up the warts. Often, it takes awhile (several weeks) for it to work, but its worth it! Good luck!
Avatar f tn Is there any benefit to this and/or is it a no no, to continue treating an area where there is no wart present anymore?
Avatar m tn I Was diagnosed about a month ago with genital warts at planned parenthood the lady told me to use aldara because i have 1 small lesion and a bunch of what she says to be tiny warts that are the size of a needle point. They are really small but i have a lot. Just so you know how small they are you wouldn't know they were there unless you stretch out the skin and take a look.
Avatar m tn I asked for a prescription for Aldara and he said no !! From this site I assumed the following 1, The strains of HPV that cause Warts rarely lead to Cancer. 2, He told me I have this forever and I'm at very high risk for anal cancer.
Avatar f tn I asked the nurse on duty today while picking up the Aldara prescription about what I might have. She told the me sores typically look like those that one would get on their mouth. I have been getting cold sores since I was a child and mine typically appear and fully develop within the first 24 hours, and since I've noticed the red painless irritation (doesnt seem to have any fluid inside) for almost 5 days or even more, is it safe to put my mind as ease and almost rule out herpes.
Avatar n tn is there anything that could cause someone with no previous problems with skin tags to break out in a group of them down there? There are a few at the top of my Mons Pubis, one on my clitoral hood, but the rest (and a decent amount) are around my anus. There was one more in the area between my vagina and anus. The only thing I could think of that had changed recently is two months ago I started taking birth control again. At the end of 2007 I started taking Ortho-Tri-Cyclen LO.
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 got a 2nd opinion from a urologist who thought it could be a wart. He prescribed Aldara which I used to no effect EXCEPT that it caused a terrible red & stinging reaction (complete with white/gray discharge) that started a few days ago but has improved thanks to frequent cleaning and Polysporin treatment. This appeared after I had used 11/12 Aldara packets & I skipped the last one.
Avatar m tn i also noticed a handfull of tinny pin head sized white dots scattered on my penis.. there is no pain.. no discomfort..and i honestly think the white dots have been there for a while..just havent noticed that bump! i have only been sexually active in the last few months with my fiance. and i havent been creeping around haha .. so idk.. any ideas on what it could be!? i have had random skin irratation down there in the past and have always gotten checked because of my std paranoia , any ideas?
Avatar f tn My recommendation would be to get an initial freezing and a prescription of aldara. Multi vitamin exercise and lots of veggies fruit and water. It takes time. Up to 2 years for this to finally be cleared. I'm on just over a year now. Patience is a virtue for sure! Fortunately I have a wife which has no symptoms so it hasn't effected my sex life at all. Best of luck to you!
Avatar m tn I'm wondering if this is my herpes virus coming back or something else. There has been absolutely no pain urinating, no discharge, no itching, no nothing. My urine does not have this odor to it. Everything seems fine except the odor and these small almost scab looking spots. Does anyone have any idea what this might be.... ?
Avatar m tn OK, it's been over a year and they keep coming back. So I asked for a prescription for Aldara which he gave me. After a few weeks of using just a little bit as instructed with no reaction or results I increased the dose. After a week of upping the dose my penis head swelled to the size of a tennis ball, no joke. I was too embarrassed to seek help.
Avatar n tn Anything else is likely to be a scam. Aldara is used more typically, and is available only with a prescription. You can also have them cauterized or frozen, similar to warts. Once one ruptures, be sure to clean up the contents carefully, as the centers of MC lesions contain the virus itself. However, once one breaks apart, normally it will heal just fine.
556286 tn?1215557480 Please don't worry, I used to have these warts on my butts, and my doctor gave me Aldara cream 5% (imiquimod) and it went away within two weeks. Aldara is kind of expensive they're $300 for 12 tiny packets of about 4 water droplets. But they worked like miracle. Please ask you doctor for a prescription.
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 Every week I go for cyrotherapy procedure and apply aldara (as per prescription) since last 2 weeks. Aldara is gng to be on 3rd week now and looks to be effective. My questions: 1. My wife hasnt seen any symptom of warts or HPV since I noticed my breakout. Couple of months earlier than breakout, her HPV came negative and Pap Smears was normal. 2. We have regular sex and she doesnt go near my anal infected area. My penal area hasnt shown warts.
Avatar n tn that's how I know for sure they're warts. He gave me a prescription for Aldara, and a couple starter packs. I haven't started on it yet because I didn't have money for a prescription, nor insurance to cover it.. I didn't want to start with the starter packs, stop when I ran out, and then start again. As a related question.. I still have that prescription, originally written out on 3/15/06 (yes, I know, it's a while back - life kinda got in the way for a while).
Avatar m tn She then refilled my prescription for Aldara, which I know works when applied properly. However, I have no insurance and the medication for one month is 560.00 which is worth it for two months if it kills the warts forever and the virus causing them. I found, online, a medication called Wartrol which is supposed to attack the virus and show results within 48 hours and is significantly cheaper. Could you please check out this link and let me know what you would advise me to do?
Avatar f tn She told me nothing else was wrong with my anus and sent me on my way - with a prescription for aldara. I started using the aldara that night (friday). A week later I was still having difficulties and went to another doctor. This doctor gave me a thorough exam. He found two large fissures at the entrance of my anus and prescribed a cream to help them heal, he also told me to increase fibre. I asked him to look at the warts - he told me there was no evidence whatsoever of warts.
Avatar m tn He said it doesnt look like typical HPV and he said Id KNOW if I Herpes. The prior doctor prescribed me Aldara and the new doctor was reluctant to renew because he said what I have is not typical. I got the prescription and left the doctors office upset. I have made myself ridiculously paranoid with online reading because the pictures are HORRIFIC and have driven me mental. Anyways, a thought came to me and I dont know why but I thought fungal infection.
Avatar m tn the dr did the sprayed liquid nitrogen for 6 times and gave me prescription, aldara. my question is that, what procedure and how will they do for the warts that is inside the anus by the colo-rectal specialist?... i just wnat to know alex please!... Thank you!
Avatar n tn The cost of a physician visit, such as to a dermatologist, and the costs of the prescription drugs for genital warts--podofilox (Condylox) or imiquimod (Aldara)--can be high, but vary all over the map from one city to another and among pharmacies. You will get better information than my guess by calling a local dermatologist and a few pharmacies in your area. But my guess is the total cost is way under the one-month insurance premium you cite.
