Common Questions and Answers about Imiquimod during pregnancy

aldara

Avatar f tn Hello, It is common to get pyogenic granuloma during pregnancy. Treatment consists of topical imiquimod cream and alitretinoin gel, intralesional steroid injections and surgical excision. Sclerotherapy, chemical cauterization with silver nitrate, ligation of the base and cryotherapy30 have all been reported effective. For that you have to consult a dermatologist as unfortunately no treatment which is available at home is there. I hope it helps. Take care and God bless.
Avatar n tn Hello. I am in my 39th week of pregnancy, but early in my pregnancy I was firstly diagnosed with Chlamydia. (Note, I have had a normal uncomplicated pregnancy, although I DID have Chlamydia, it was cured, and was later diagnosed with HPV)... I needed two (painful) treatments of Azthromycin before I was finally cleared. I still continued to -occasionally- have a slight green/yellow discharge that sort of resembled what it would look like if I blew my nose during a cold.
Avatar m tn If this is not possible, only in your case (and not your wife's) you could treat them yourself with either Warticon (podophyllotoxin) or Aldara (Imiquimod). However in the case of your wife, these are contraindicated during pregnancy. Genital warts may rapidly enlarge during pregnancy, probably as a result of altered immune system or increased oestrogen/progesterone, but they regress after delivery often with complete resolution without any treatment.

Avatar n tn Podophyllin and podofilox should not be used during pregnancy, as they are absorbed by the skin and could cause birth defects in the fetus. 5-fluorouracil cream should not be used while trying to become pregnant or if the person taking the medication could be pregnant. Small warts can be removed by freezing (cryosurgery), burning (electrocautery), or laser treatment. ref:http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn It is not known whether imiquimod (aldara) is safe to use during pregnancy or on children younger than 12. Also results of treatment of molluscum contagiousum with aldara are not that satisfactory. I would suggest that you discuss with your doctor, regarding the advantages and disadvantages of using aldara. Best.

Avatar f tn If a woman of childbearing age becomes pregnant while already on HBV therapy, the decision on whether to continue treatment or stop should be individualized based on the trimester that the pregnancy was discovered, the severity of her underlying liver disease, the risk adversity of the mother to medications during pregnancy (especially in early pregnancy), and the risk of flares when stopping the medications (Table 2).
Avatar n tn I am currently pregnant and I was hoping to find out if there is any hope for treatment of this virus, while pregnant or post pregnancy. I have been thinking about maybe seeing an Acupunturist to see if they can help me,what do you think? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/240322'>Flat warts on face</a>.
Avatar f tn - It is obvious that I will have to stop the treatment before getting pregnant, during pregnancy and during breast-feasting, in total at least 2 years. What is the risk of my relapse during this two year-break? Since the body is more vulnerable during pregnancy, I am worried that the risk for a flare during this period would be quite high? What are my options should the relapse happen? What can I do to prepare to prevent it from happening?
Avatar m tn monocytes – According to a 2011 interventional study in which patients with multiple sclerosis were given high doses of vitamin , peripheral blood mononuclear cells (monocytes) lose “abnormal reactivity” at 40 ng/mL.10 Epstein Barr virus – In a 2010 study of pregnancy-associated breast cancer, higher levels of 25-D were positively correlated with serum antibodies to Epstein Barr Virus, suggesting that EBV is able to better proliferate in patients who take vitamin D.
