Common Questions and Answers about Aldara time frame

aldara

Avatar f tn I have only been using the Aldara a week, and I am not expecting miracles and I realize there is probably not any hard data, but what is a realistic time frame to start seeing results? One last question...
Avatar m tn can you give me a ball park time frame? 2- is there any way to help repigmentation at home? 3- are there procedures that can be done on the penis to fix this? 4- would aldara or high concentration podof. cause scars? white scars? 5- the doc told me that it was ok to have sex with my gf as shes probably already infected, and that any new warts that appeared would be from the virus in my body, not new ones she passed on? is that true? (she is assymptomatic).
Avatar n tn I am having an outbreak of red pimples in the groin area. I last had sex with my girlfriend six days ago.The outbreak has happened in this time frame. She is unshaven, but was "bristly" which caused some chafing. The pimples look similar to molluscum, which I had a bout with about two years ago. I cannot be sure though. After looking at Folliculitis pictures on the internet and re-examining myself, it appears that a hair is growing through most of the pimples.

Avatar m tn Welcome to the forum. Thanks for your question. The bottom line is that you probably do not have a continuing wart and the HPV infection that caused it is long gone. HPV is rarely contagious beyond a year or two. It is rare for genital warts to persist this long, even without treatment. And it is quite common for scar tissue -- often in the form of a bump -- to persist indefinitely. That's probably what is going on.
Avatar m tn I have mainly been in long relationships my whole life except the last two years where I have had sex more than the time frame up to that point but in total I have not exceed 10 partners thus far. I have worn condoms with everyone in that 2 year time frame but managed to catch genital warts. I am devastated that this happened, I have been so careful and have always feared this virus for some reason. I have been to two clinics for the issue in 4 days.
Avatar n tn People usually start to notice a change after around 6 weeks (it should say the precise time frame in the instructions) and I know 6 weeks sounds a long time, but when I used aldara it literally took me about 2 weeks (Which I didn't think was possible) it also took my partner around that time too. However remember what I said about bodies reacting differently. You are bound to feel the way you do. I was borderline distraught when I was diagnosed, but now it is such a casual thing in my life.
Avatar n tn Think fast freezing is definitely the highway to get rid of it. Slower methods like Aldara takes some time but is less invasive..... Some ppl try vinegar or apple cider vinegar.... my GP once told me for genera warts that's useful as the aci alters the pH and makes it more difficult for the virus to replicate (dunno how much truth there is to it - unconventional). I understand being a broke college student and this suxxx.

Avatar m tn Many practionars state that the body clears it up after to years, does that mean you stop getting warts after that time frame or you may continue to have them. what are the chances of developing oral cancer if you have hpv and how long does it take to occure? does your life expctancy reduce dramatically if you have it? Also, what are the chances of developing penile cancer, especially if you are uncurcumsized. Does eating healty reduce that risk at all?
Avatar n tn first off don't worry about the time frame. The frame is the frame and all you can do is put on the correct attitude until it's over. I had five outbreaks over the course of a year exactly and now I've gone five months with no new warts. You will too buddy. Keep the faith and the hopefullness. Also, What you using ACV for? That stuff is an old wives tale. Go to the doctor and have them remove it.
Avatar m tn The doctor also told her that I would have had to have contracted this infection in the same time frame. In other words, the doctor is stating that I was unfaithful to her. I know this to be untrue. Is there any medical explanation for the 1998 HPV infection? I know I was not unfaithful and I believe my wife when she says she wasn't either.

Avatar n tn I basically have 1 wart which is recurring. I've been to the GUM clinic a number of times. The first time they gave me the blue Warticon solution which I dabbed on 3 nights a week. After a number of weeks, the wart disappeared. I was a happy man. A month or two later it was back with a vengenance. It was not particularly big, but it was visible to me, especially when my penis was of different sizes.
Avatar f tn I didn't start taking medication until June 2010.The whole time I was using aldara, Trichloracetic acid, podifilox, and condylox thinking it was genital warts and I continued to have outbreaks every couple of weeks to once a month. I went back to the clinic when I had a bad outbreak in April 2010 and she said that it was herpes and my results came back as genital herpes. I started treatment in June 2010 and I was outbreak free until september.
Avatar m tn I would like to add that there's no such thing as HPV test except pap smear test and even pap smear test CANNOT detect a HPV infection that has gone away (in this case after the 1-2 years time frame thingey) So when you said about genital wart test, the only way to test that is to look at visible warts because there's no blood test nor any "hidden" test to check our current HPV infection.
Avatar m tn i still haven't presented with any of the obvious symptoms such as bumps or warts on my penis, but i've experienced an on-again off-again burning sensation just inside of the tip of my penis. most of the time i would say it's simply irritating, though for a day or two about a week ago it did move up to what i would call painful.
