Avatar m tn Hello, Yes warts are less likely to recur after treatment. For small warts , several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts. Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation.
Avatar m tn Hello, Research had showed that some patients had benefitted after isotretinoin for genital warts but it is not the commonly followed treatment. For small warts several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts.
Avatar m tn I finally went to a doctor who looked at it and told me I have genital warts. However all my tests came back negative. I got tested for everything to HPV to HIV to Herpes, it was full panel test. Someone told me it could possible be Molluscum Contagiosum? Any thoughts? And whats the best way to get rid of this? My doctor gave my Imiquimod Cream but it seems to be making it worse Thanks.
Avatar n tn If a person is carrying genital warts, 1) Would they disappear for ever? 2) Is intercourse possible without protection after treatment? 3) I have been prescribed to use Verrumal, is it a good product? 4) If me and my partner have been carrying genital warts and using treatments, can we have intercourse without protection?

Avatar m tn Hello! For about six months I am proud owner of genital warts (or at least I know about them since then ) . I went to a dermatologist who told me that I only need to burn tthe warts with nitrogen and I was going alone to build immunity against the virus and I would heal - so it's been 2-3 months - no result - still experience these guys.
Avatar m tn At first I thought they were pimples since I usually get a couple from time to time, but it's been 2 weeks now since they first appeared and it doesn't look like they're going anywhere. They look like 2 small genital warts. I have a very active sexual life. In 2010 I had sex with 30 different prostitutes. I ALWAYS wear condom for vaginal sex and I have tested for HIV in November and it came up negative. Anyway, I don't know what to do about these 2 red bumps.
Avatar f tn I'm 47 and was recently diagnosed with genital warts. I probably had the first one nearly two years ago,I was also going through menopause and honestly did not think much about it. Last January however I noticed more appearing. I never for a moment even thought they were warts until I saw an episode of Girls and the subject was genital warts..I began to panic and scheduled an appt with my nurse practitioner. Upon examination she thought they were skin tags and gave me a test to rule out warts.
Avatar n tn The underlying virus is never completely eliminated, however, and genital warts may reappear even after treatment. Genital warts may disappear without treatment, but sometimes eventually develop a fleshy, small raised growth. There is no way to predict whether they will grow or disappear. Depending on the size and location of the wart, and other factors, a doctor will offer one of several ways to treat them.
Avatar m tn Most likely you can rely on the second provider's diagnosis and advice, not the first--if only because your risk for genital warts was so low, making that diagnosis less credible than skin tags. Sorry, I can't predict whether any particular skin tag or other bump will regress in size or when. The specialist should be able to answer that question, though. Thanks for the thanks.
Avatar m tn Hi guys, I've been using imiquimod to treat my genital warts for a little over a month now (applying it every other day), and I'm starting to get some lesions on the shaft of my penis. Most noticeably right under the head. It's very red and sometimes looks like an open sore if it's been chafed a bit, and sometimes looks like it's kind of scabbing over. Is this a cause for alarm? Should I put my imiquimod treatment on hold for a little while to let the lesions heal?
1297646 tn?1275465752 Once you become infected it can take up to three months for the genital warts to appear. How are Genital Warts Diagnosed? Not all warts are obvious to the naked eye. The doctor or health worker may apply a solution of weak vinegar-like solution which causes any warts to turn white. An internal examination of the anus may be carried out to check for hidden warts.
Avatar f tn Hello, Warts are tumours or growths of the skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV).They are contagious when in contact with the skin of an infected person. It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person.
Avatar m tn Hello, It looks like recurrence of warts. You can go for other treatment options of warts. For this several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts.Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation. I hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Have you ever tried home remedies like apple cider vinegar for genital warts? - Dilute apple cider vinegar in warm water. - Use a cotton ball to apply the solution on the wart. Cover it with a bandage. - Repeat it daily till the wart sheds off. This remedy is mainly for small, single wart. In fact, topical cream is what people often use to remove warts. To cure stubborn warts, an OTC topical cream called Vidarox may work better. I had a small group of warts on my genital area for years.

Avatar f tn Before I know I had them I was intamate with my boyfriend and he most likely has them now too, but I know there's topical treatment such as Aldara (Imiquimod) for external genital warts, but I been wondering if there is an oral treatment for internal genital warts, that way I have a better chance of not spreading it again.
Avatar m tn I have had these genital warts for about 6 month now, I have tried different treatments from freezing to ointments and now I prodocon-25, I have seen dermatologist and urologoists I have the warts on the foreskin and one in the tip next to the urinal hole, the last urologo I saw wants to do circumcision and cut off the one on the tip to do a biopsy I'am concern about the circumcision because it might spread the virus when cutting the skin, the prodocon-25 is very strong stuff in 3 days it has a
Avatar m tn Hi Are there any over the counter medication a person can get to help clear up male genital warts as I have been to doctor but can't afford the prescription medication at the moment? Any help will be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with genital warts. The doc froze them off then he prescribed Aldara cream. He said that I should put the cream right on the spots that he froze. He said that I did not need to wait for those spots to heal and that I could start using Aldara right away. Is this ok?? Also, I am not quite sure if I have other warts on the shaft of my penis. There are a few other very small bumps that I am not sure of.
Avatar f tn I have done hours upon hours of research and am diagnosing myself with genital warts. I have been very unsuccessful in getting rid of them. They're everywhere! Inside my vagina, and on the lips, even on my clitoris. I have started taking vitamins a, c, d, e and garlic. I have read that these can help build up my immune system to kill off the virus. But, it's not working. I have no insurance and wouldn't be able to afford to go to the doctor r get medication on my own.
