Avatar f tn Hi, Been going back and forth to the Doctors for the past 4 months and after a biopsy, found out yesterday I have VIN and CIN. I opted for the surgery instead of the cream, due to the fact I've been in pain for the past 4 months and was told the cream would burn, itch and redness would occur for 6 weeks. My question is, the doctor told me that the cream would be Aldara, I looked it up and found it's to treat Genital Warts and cancer cells or something.
Avatar m tn I am currently using Aldara to treat what looks like genital warts. I assume I have a certain strain of HPV which causes this. I have also been treated in the past for CIN as well as VIN. I have been using the Aldara for 12-14 weeks. I am soon approaching the recommended 16 week mark and the warts are only getting bigger and spreading. My partner and I have had unprotected sex, but are now using a condom. He was tested for HPV and the test came back negative.
Avatar f tn What I am wondering is if what I actually had was genital warts or if it was just a lesion from the vin. The lesion that I had went away almost instantly after I put aldara on it for two nights and I never had any others to this day. I honestly do not think that it was genital warts. Especially because I was told and have read that they usually are multiple and grow to be quite visible?? Do you think the growth could have just been from the VIN and not a genital wart?
Avatar n tn UNTIL about 2 weeks ago - when he noticed 1 tiny wart that he treated himself from his leftover Aldara prescription from a year ago. Now, given everything I have read about typical HPV clearance timeframes, I am perplexed: 1) How did I get infected if my first most likely exposure was a good 15-16 months after his original episode had been treated and he had not experienced any visible symptoms since? How did he have another wart appear now, 21 months after his first and only episode?
Avatar n tn My last one showed me as having VIN2 which my oncologist/gyno wanted me to use ALDARA Cream for 3 months, I tried it but i couldnt function with all the side effects, So after much reading as much as i could find on HPV and VIN i started taking the supplement DIM, thought it was helping some but now I have the burning back again and am afraid I will have to go in and have another biopsy again. I hate this. How come so many of us never heard of this before.
