Aldara usage

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara usage


Avatar m tn just wondering do i really have to throw away each aldara packet after one usage... i feel like its such a waste since i only use like a fourth of it for each application...???
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Aldara (imiquimod) to get rid of a few perianal HPV warts since cryotherapy was only making it worse. After only about 2 weeks of usage almost all symptoms of the warts were gone however I now have perianal psoriasis in its place. That is one of the side-effects of imiquimod and it mainly strikes people whom are genetically prone to having psoriasis.
Avatar m tn During this 1 year, my wife, mother and sisters are vaccinated 3 times. My mother and sisters' ANTI-HBS titers are over 500 IU/ml. However, my wife's is only 5 IU/ml (Negative). She was vaccinated 4 times during the year. Her titer rises to 5, then 9, then 13, then again 5 negative. What should we do?
Avatar n tn Have you used Aldara to treat hemangiomas in infants? Any treatment usage for different hemangiomas?
Avatar n tn so i began using aldara (for 2 weeks) on it. I talked to my nurse and she told me if it was herpes the aldara usage would have been excrutiating pain. After using Aldara the bumps turned grayish white hard and eventually peeled into one open sore. Since healing it is still there like a slightly raised scar. i went to NY feeling scared and began gettin the chills, and feeling hot and with an assumed fever the next morning we were headed to Milan,Italy..
Avatar n tn I have been using Aldara for over two years now for internal HPV lesions on the vaginal wall, (rarer than those occurring on the cervix). I have never had a problem that led to this in the past due to the usage of Aldara. I am becoming more and more convinced that this is herpes. The unchanging bumps confuse me, though, both vaginally and orally. I feel as though they have spread slightly, but do not cause discomfort. Are herpes lesions always visible when they begin hurting?
Avatar n tn I had them treated and removed via cryo, used Aldara and I was told that as long as It was smooth. I was ok to have sex with my wife. We went on Vacation and just to be safe we used a condom for everything. Then two days ago. Two more warts popped up in two different spots. They werent there to the naked eye or touch when we had sex, but from reading here that may not matter. I am bummed. So my questions, AM I a ticking time bomb for her.
Avatar m tn it is not to stop antivirals and wait because relapse risk is highest So in my final question i got the answer to the best regimen when hbsag very low or und hbsab und zadaxin plus hbv vaccine with aldara on skin on site of injection and vitd3 or keep pegintf if no zadaxin or hbv vaccine Antivirals are better not to be used because some low virion production is needed to stimulate immune therapy like a vaccine
Avatar n tn Although warts usually appear on the penis and not the pubic region, I am a religious condom wearer and if I did have sex with someone where I caught this long ago, I would have gotten an std on the perimeter only- due to condom usage. Having said that, there are a couple bumps near the base of the shaft- one has a hair growing out the side/bottom. Let me ask for clarification on something you wrote in your last post.
Avatar n tn (3) Heterosexual males and females may contract anal warts by the usage of insturments (such as sexual toys,etc. ) if the opposing partner has/had them. Plantar warts and warts on the finger(s) are not transmitted to the genital area. HPV caused by genital/anal warts is only transmitted by genital warts. Extensive research has shown that there are over 100 types of HPV....nonthing that cannot be resolved without the use of such creams as Aldara or cryotherapy (freezing).

Avatar m tn aldara on the skin where you inject the vaccine is a very promising approach, and very available. The injections should be done intradermally, maybe 6 to eight injections spaced about 1cm on skin that has been prepared with aldara 2 hours before and again immediately before the injection. the doses for intradermal vaccinations are less than for intramuscular. having zadaxin in the mix would enhance it further, a Canadian trial has proven that.
Avatar f tn My second question followed, if I have to continue w the medicine, what are the options I can use for birth control (beside usage of condom everytime, which is not a prefered choice)? Thank you very much for helping with my case.
