Aldara results

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara results


Avatar n tn 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 f tn I started using Aldara to address an issue of a large area of "pinched skin". When prescribed the Aldara, my doctor didn't make me concerned about this area as being anything unusual or not normal. A few days after using the Aldara, I began to form sores and redness in that area as well as on my genitals. A GYN said I had herpes and sent out a culture. I'm waiting for the results. However, she didn't want to discuss the possibility of the Aldara causing the reaction.
Avatar n tn He biopsied one but I don't know the results. They grew back. Then I got 2 more on my cheek and went back, and he said they were acne and refused to do anything. Once I talked a GP into freezing them. They grew back. I tried again, and they told me to see a dermatologist. I started freezing them myself using a wart-freezing kit. I got rid of maybe 30%. (Doctors 0%). I knew that there were several topical treatments out there, so I researched them and decided Aldara was my best bet.
Avatar n tn it can take up to 3 months until aldara makes warts disappear but odds are if you haven't had any results by now, you won't. See your dermatologist to have them removed instead.
Avatar n tn Is Aldara use a good idea for someone with autoimmune disease (for possible facial pre-melanoma in area difficult to operate on)?
Avatar m tn Just started a treatment of Aldara today. I always seem to have a few small genital warts on me. Does anyone know what I can expect. I am 31 and healthy in every way. I have been receiving cryotherapy for 3 years and they always come back. I was told that Aldara will help get my immune system involved in fighting the virus so I will have a better chance of losing the warts. Has anyone out there used thus treatment ?
Avatar n tn Hello there,thank you for the advice you gave me the other day.I went to my doctor yesterday & he prescribed Aldara cream for me to apply on the warts/skin tags that I have on my face & neck area.Does any one know if this stuff really works,or is there any pre-cautions or side affects that I should be aware of?How long does it take to see results?I was told to apply this cream three times a week.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Hey all, So I have many very small HPV warts on my vulva. The doctor called it vulvar dysplasia, and he prescribed aldara cream 3 times a week because he said that since there are so many a laser would be very painful and that we should try to remove some with aldara first. I have a few questions about using aldara. 1) is it harmful to shave on off days from using aldara? 2) Can shaving make the warts worse? 3) Is sex okay when the cream is not on the skin? Thank you!
Avatar m tn well i have been using aldara for about 2 weeks or so and my anal warts have dramatically decreased in size :) i did have bad side effects such as feeling tired and some body aches and really bad itching in the area causing me not to sleep at night but i stuck with it and its actually working somewhat. I did drastically change my diet though eating more vegetables and fruits and taking a daily vitamin and reducing alcohol intake and not smoking at all.
Avatar n tn A few months later the warts came back and I revisited the clinic and they were frozen once again, but this time I was given 'Aldara' cream to apply three times a week on the warts. I have visited the GUM clinic around four or five times since and been given the freezing treatment followed by Aldara cream and although every time I had the full STI testing this was found to be the only virus I had (or had symptoms for).
Avatar f tn If a lesion popped up as a squamous cell, would Aldara cause a reaction if I usually have a good reaction (resolves the lesion) if I treat basal cell with it? It seems biopsy results takes weeks to get back and I am just wanting some more information. Thanks again in advance!
Avatar f tn My gyn put me on aldara for my gential warts, i started and within a week i discovered i had an open sore at the opening of my vagina, maybe i wasn'tas careful as i should of using it, but 2 days later this thing is painful as hell, i call my gyn and he tells me to come in, i told him i suspect is a side effect from aldara, he has a look at it and tells he he think it looks just like a herpes open sore, he sent me for a blood test for that.
Avatar n tn I'd still say it could be a reaction to the Aldara, and how you are using it. You will just need to wait and see what the test results say.
Avatar n tn It was a very small one, hardly visible, so I didn't do much about it. I went to the doctor again 2 months ago and he suggested to use Aldara on it because he didn't keep a nitro gun. I had been using it for about 2 months when I developed this sore on my penis, size of a quater, but not round. There were no blisters but just a sore as if the skin had been peeled off. It was slightly weepy, pink, shiny and had white pus like formation/skin on it.
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 So here is my story. I was prescribed Aldara and told to take it 5 times a week for up to 3 months. This was October 23rd. I did so Monday-Friday for 4 weeks and felt like they were getting smaller, but had to take a week off due to some skin irritation. (left on too long). I then resumed. I tried to avoid the internet before because I of all the conflicting information, and now see the one thing thats always the same is that it's prescribed almost exclusively 3 times a week for 16 weeks.
Avatar f tn This December I had a tiny, flesh colored flat wart on my outerr vaginal lip. My doctor prescribed me a 24 pack of Aldara cream. Afetr about a week of using the cream I called him and aske him if I could stop using the cream or do I need to finish it all. He told me to finish using until all gone. I continued using the cream and around the second week of using i developed a sever rash. They were bumps that were really red and itchy.
Avatar m tn has anyone used aldara cream on lip for cancer, if so what results
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!

I also have a decreased appetite although this could be from worry.
Avatar n tn 56am it was 51 beats per min. for the low. We used The Aldara 5% cream...on a rash he had and also went to the Dr. and had the rash burned off...All these events happened that month of using that really strong medicine. This is the only thing that is different, that has happened to him. It may not mean anything...the Aldara or the other procedure. But I wanted that out there in case that is why His heart keeps racing when he is at rest.
Avatar m tn He prescribed Aldara cream 5 % and asked me to apply. I applied a full sachet at a time daily in the nights for about 20 days. I think that some of the excess aldara cream also got on to me scrotum testicle skin which turned the area red. After a few days, there was a watery discharge which further developed into small ulcers. I tried all types of creams and neem oil on it which i think worsened the situation. I showed them to my doc and he told that it is herpes so get tested for it.
Avatar f tn I got tested for all STDs except genital warts. My results were negative. My doctor said that there was no way to test for warts until I actually have a visible bump. This person is now my ex. I don't want to move on with my life and find out that I've been spreading gw. I'm so terrified. I only had sex with my ex one time. We used a condom but he took it off during. I noticed it wasn't on anymore about halfway through.
Avatar f tn I was reading however that having no symptoms for hsv and having such low results it was advices to get retested although having genital warts I thought that was one manifestation of the hsv virus so I got retested for all std at planned parenthood and my test results came back as negative for hsv 2 I asked the nurse what kind of test and the number of my results and she told me that the test was igg (which was also the one from Mexico) and that the number was .
Avatar f tn 24 all this time I have not had symptoms of hsv 2 and had been taking acyclovir every other day so one day yes the other no and would only take it once so the daily dosage was 200mg up until oct 30 when I got my last results. Btw I had been applying aldara to the warts and I have been wart free for 1 month and no recurrence. My question is should I retest for hsv and how reliable are the results if I had been taking acyclovir on and off?
Avatar f tn Can Any one tell me ....what is to be done for my results HbsAg - 2650 IU/ml Anti HBs - 67.5 IU/ml HbeAG -Negative HBV DNA PCR- 24 IU/ML LFT - Normal Pl. suggest for further.
Avatar m tn My doctor gave me Aldara and I have used it for a month and there is no change in anything. Does HPV in men cause raised wavy lines to emerge on the penile skin? What could this be?
Avatar f tn Biop turned out ''squamous cell' but course of Aldara was over by the time he got the results. At the time of the biopsy (but before the 'results') my husband was given a booklet explaining Aldara for 'basal' cell therapy but no where was it mentioned the medication was also used for Squamous cells and now this has him a bit concerned that he used a medication that may not have been the correct choice. Could someone kindly comment on this ... many thanks...
Avatar m tn Should I just give it some more time or is it apparent that Imiquimod isn't going to work for me? Wondering if Podofilox or the stronger 5% Aldara cream would have been a better choice.
Avatar m tn I have some test results. Other test results will be available on Friday and I will share all of them here.
