Common Questions and Answers about Aldara other uses

aldara

Avatar f tn I'm not an expert, but from what I understand it is used to treat other things then just warts and has been used to treat areas of concern regarding skin cancer- as far as skin tags in the genital area- I believe they just remove them more then give you medication for them. I'd head to your local pharmacy and just ask them if they know of this medication being used for skin tags- your pharmacists are usually the biggest help when it comes to uses and interactions of prescriptions.
Avatar n tn Me and my fiance have genital warts and was treated for more than 3 times already..... but it keeps growing on other areas..... No sign of relapse on the former lesions... But it gets very frustrating..... It really hurts being burnt..... Should we carry on the treatment? Will it just grow on other areas forever? Can we still have a normal life? Any medical advice for us to have a strong immune system?
Avatar n tn A dermatologist freezes the warts, then the person uses a cream called Aldara. They'll go away...but might come back, its a virus. It does calm down with time... depends on the severity. Some research indicates that using Aldara might prevent them from coming back in the same spot. You can see the warts on his penis if you look..... dont freak and make him self conscience. Try to diffuse with humor and/or love.... Penis have little glands on them, they resemble pimples... little bumps, normal.
Avatar m tn I have been prescribed aldara which is a cream that stimulates your immune system to destroy the virus that causes them as oppose to just destroying the tissue itself. It appears to be working. Some ppl react differently to it though. Hope this helps some. Stay positive at least you have each other..
Avatar m tn If you are in your 20s or younger and don't have HIV....Aldara will probably cure the virus within a few months (whether it's HPV or molluscum contagiousum) I doubt you have a skin tag on your penis. HPV is very common just use the meds and get rid of it while you still stand a chance. HPV turns into carcinoma (cancer). Yep. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Just use the meds.
Avatar n tn About 2 years ago, I made the mistake of receiving unprotected oral from a woman I knew. Other than my girlfriend, she is the only other woman I have ever had any kind of sexual contact with.
Avatar f tn treatment creams, such as concentrated green tea catechins (for which a patent has been obtained by a big pharma company which charges a fortune for the cream), interferon alpha, aldara, etc. There are MANY uses for almost all drugs that are well-accepted in the medical community but not yet, and, often, NEVER, formally approved by the FDA for that use. Zorvirax for genital warts is one such treatment.
Avatar m tn i was checking for trl7 agonists and i found there are already 2 and one marketed already and even generic, they are used on viral infections to activate immune response on HPV, herpes viruses, other viruses and even soem types of skin cancers, they are in form of creams Imiquimod ( Aldara ) http://dreampharm.com/drugs-online/aldara/aldara.5.html The genetic control of airway responsiveness and the effect of resiquimod treatment on allergic asthma http://gradworks.umi.com/NR/68/NR68509.
Avatar m tn One uses a peptide of some kind and the other YIC (HBsAg-HBsAb immune complex). The peptide vaccine is still going on in a Phase 2 trial in combination with Entecavir.(The standalone peptide vaccine achieved 30% HbeAg seroconversion, same as the control group, no-one has offered any explanation). Yesterday, Dr Mamun-Al-Mahtab, Bangladesh, gave a presentation on NASVAC (nasal vaccine using HbsAg + HbcAg) in a biotechnolgy conference in Cuba.
Avatar m tn My doctor gave me aldara or something similar, basically an ointment.
Avatar m tn When you do treat the wart with lets say, cryotherapy, your wart will dry and fall off but the skin where the wart was may still contain a small amount of the virus, it may or may not cause another outbreak but thats how you treat the area after you get rid of the wart. Use veregen or Aldara on it afterwards to use your immune system to treat that area.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the site dreamspirit, its really helpful. I'm going to see a different gyno soon as my other one didnt believe that these conditions exist, lets hope I get somewhere with my new one! Can you tell me about your symptoms? The thing I'm worried about is that the site says that LB and CV are always cyclic - the symptoms are worse just before your period and then they disappear during your period. Do you know if that is always the case?
Avatar f tn It looks like it is advisable for me to use Baraclude for life, which is although not too much a problem on the finance aspect, but is extremely inconvinient for other aspects of life. This is because I would like to use contraceptive pills for birth control but it is advisable that anyone taking treatment for Hep B shouldn't use pills. My questions are therefore, in my case, when can I stop Baraclude?
Avatar n tn i have recently relocated from the US and canand to jamaica, i thought maybe the climate changes had something to do with my situation, but i'm at a location of the island that requires comforters at night. it is cool and breezy. no fans nor ac is required, put it that way. so along with the canesten i add a little bleach to my buff puff or bathing rag and things are minimized by about 10%. might not seem like alot, but it buys time for you to regain some sanity.
Avatar n tn No doctor I've been to has ever been able to come up with anything other than a lame explanation for what I had, and none have prescribed anything other than lots of sleep and crossed fingers. This didn't work! I may never know why my intestinal balance was off and these symptoms started, but at least now I know how to get rid of the problem. If this seems familiar to you, what could it hurt to try?
