Aldara nose

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara nose


Avatar m tn Have any of you ever used Aldara 5% cream? My dermatologist suggested it to determine if my mole was just an irritation or a skin cancer. After reading the package insert and doing some research online I was to scared to try it. If it is recommended to me again I am wondering if I should use it. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Just this afternoon, on a pre-cancerous basal or less legion on the nose (sorry i don't know the terms) that will be sent for biopsy my husband was prescribed Aldaral, 3x a week (mon-wed-fri) for 4 (four) weeks I'm not asking for a diagnosis just curious to know if this seems like a mild/moderate/ or heavy-duty dosage...i am concerned about the side affects i've been reading on message boards i just 'googled' ..but realize everyone's system handles drugs differently ...
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 f tn My daughter has noduloinfiltrative basal cell carcinoma on her nose. We visited two plastic surgeons for the reconstruction after seeing two mohs surgeons. They talked about a "flap". I need the name of someone in south florida that specializes in reconstruction with a good reputation. She is only 31 and will be getting married in a year and would like to have the least visible scar possible.
Avatar n tn I know it is not indicted for squamous and am wondering if I am wasting more time and should ust go ahead and have the Mohs on my nose. Is trying Aldara for squamous worth trying for the next 3 months?

154520 tn?1270167776 I am due to get 2x b.c.c and a squamous c. removed from my nose, been told I have to have two skin grafts, is there any other alternative. One is on the corner of my nose near my eye and the other two on the front of my nose.
1094370 tn?1317138425 I am currently under a derm's care for about two months after suddenly, two red dots appeared on my nose and didn't clear. He said they were suspicious and froze them. When back three weeks later, still there froze them again. Also, prescribed me a cream and said that if they were, in-fact, cancerous that they would react to the cream. I don't have the name of the cream with me at the moment of writing this, but it is a cream that stimulates your immune system to fight the cancer.
757527 tn?1237896663 I also have joint pain, small sores in my mouth and vagina and sometimes sores inside my nose. I have been tested for HIV, Herpes, Syphillis, and other STDs. I have mild thrombocytopenia, slightly elevated lipase, and a low positive (1:80) ANA titer with a nuclearor pattern. My RF factor, Sed rate, and CRP have been normal. I was also tested for Celiac, which was normal. Kidney and liver functions are normal. Stool tested for fat, but normal.
Avatar n tn First off thanks for your time... My question is I noticed HPV about a year and a half ago, after about a month I was treated, the warts almost completely went away, then they started to come back and got pretty well developed to the point of being raised off the skin. I have been treating them for about 6 months steadly and I can almost get rid of them but they keep coming back, (treatment to date: Cryotherapy every two or 4 weeks & Aldara 3 nights a week).
Avatar n tn , duct tape, Compound W bandages, and now we are using Aldera. He has them under his nose (the biggest one that is mostly flat with raised areas, and also on his thumb, a patch on his leg and a couple on his arm. If we could just get rid of the one on his face we would be thrilled (it is almost the size of a dime)! Kids and adults both ask him all of the time if he needs to go blow his nose or ask him, "What is on your face?". He is of course, becoming self-conscience about it.
Avatar n tn We have been told it could be benign cephalic histiocystosis, a form of wart or broken capillaries.We have used aldara and hydrocortizome cream, both did nothing. Any other clue as to what it could be?
Avatar n tn I still continued to -occasionally- have a slight green/yellow discharge that sort of resembled what it would look like if I blew my nose during a cold. I was tested about 4 times again after having been "cured" and I did not have sex with my fiance. I told my doctor about this a few weeks ago and she said of all the times I'd been tested the results came back negative several times and that I should not worry.
Avatar n tn I wonder if I would have still had them if I had them removed instead of wasting months with the Aldara. I still needed to see my doctor after the Aldara didn't work on several. I am still being treated 9 months later. I'm not sure how I got them. I wish you luck.
Avatar n tn I was wondering, how thorough are biopsies. Also, He is recommending aldara but I have not been sexually active for a long tiome so I am assuming this is a recurrance. Is there a medicine which will kill the virus so it does not recur. Finally, I am a straight male. I havbe always had stomach problems and after a colonoscoply I felt something like a hemmroid etc.
4865450 tn?1361298133 You could also go see an ENT doctor about your throat. That doctor will throw a scope into your nose and then down your throat for a better exam. 2. Besides the pills you are taking, take Zinc and Folic Acid. Exercise often, get more rest, reduce stress, no cigs, reduce booze intake esp ales and beer, etc. 3. Yes. But keep testing yourself yearly.
Avatar n tn The doctor tested this and they came up wth ecoli, which he gave me medicine for (cipro) My legs and feet have been showing bumps some are hard (very small), they dont have anything in it. I itch on my nose and eyes. sometimes there is small water like bumps very tiny on my eyelid. (very small). I have been tested for all stds several times which are all negative. I have used a host of creams 7 pills which the doctors have prescribed.
Avatar f tn aldara = the solution. use as directed. hpv can go away PROVIDED THAT you abstain from all sexual encounters, kissing, smoking after people, drinking after people etc. AVOID ALL CONTACT WITH ANYTHING THAT CAN MAKE YOU SICK (saliva, coughs, sneezes, touching wet moist surfaces that sick people have been around and then touching your nose/eyes/mouth.) WASH YOUR HANDS. Your immune system can fight the HPV off. DO NOT FREEZE THE WARTS/BURN THEM OFF/SURGICALLY REMOVE THEM.
Avatar n tn The third year I had hundreds of flat warts on my face only. I had them on my forehead, my nose, cheeks, chin and eyelids. And then one night my flat warts started itching so bad and there was no relief and I woke up with hundreds more. I went to my doctor again and he said he has never seen so many on a person's face in his entire career and suggested I go see another doctor and go to a University as a case study (unreal).
Avatar n tn He seemd to know immediately what it was and that its root cause originated in my nose as a crusty like lesion in the nostril which in time disappears but migrates and manifests itself as these bumps or eruptions on feet, ankles and other places like the inner thigh.
Avatar n tn I will also add that I originally saw a new doctor in my GP's office and she thought they were warts after examining me and wanted to prescribe Aldara, which after researching, I decided not to because of the cost and lack of effect most people claimed after using. Then I went to the Dermatologist and his diagnosis was NOT warts, but the pearly penile papules. I saw another Dermatologist(a PA this time) and he confirmed what the first Dermatologist's(an MD) diagnosis.
Avatar m tn check u for free you can get a cream that will help you get rid of the warts...DONT wait you can spread it. To your mouth,eyes,nose.....go get it took care of, if you touch yourself down there WASH your hands with soap for 20-30 seconds . There is a light at the end of the tunnel , I am not there yet but I am sure there is. Staying at home is depressing and can make you feel worse, get out do something go to church, volunteer go help someone else in need ...
Avatar n tn When you are exercising in an aerobic state, try breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth. The air will get warm and moist going through the nose and you will not experience the burning sensation that is related to dryness. If you are breathing too hard to breathe this way, slow down your speed, stretch the legs to do a longer stride moving from the hip instead of the knee. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Cant recall any changes in urine color then. But I do remember my body temperature was hotter than average person. I had nose-bleeding once. There were also acnes behind the back then (now they are gone). Also, it seems like it was easier for me to get cough/cold (which was on-going for like a-month). Taking medicine for my cough then may actually accelerate the ALT/AST in the liver too. After my ALT/AST back to normal range, all those bad symptoms are gone. Thanks goodness.
Avatar n tn Then we took another couple of trips and my feet and hands became extremely dry, cracked, the crease in my ear lobes, around my nose sides of my mouth would crack. Skin literally seemed to fall off of my face when i got off of the plane from Mexico to WA and it wasnt from a sunburn. During this time, the last 2.5 yrs I have had the itch below....details described in a post above I listed a few months ago. I did the detergent, soap change, cotton underwear etc.
