Avatar m tn MY HIV TEST IS NEGATIVE AND VDRL IS ALSO NEGATIVE. I HAD USED IMIQUIMOD FOR 25 DAYS BUT STILL WARTS ARE THERE. WILL THEY CLEAR, WHAT WILL BE THE SYMTOM OF THERE CLEARING, WHAT TEST SHALL I GO FOR TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF HPV I HAD.
Avatar f tn I think this question is best for your Dr at this point. He/She had diagnosed you and started you on treatment, we don't like to give conflicting info since you have see a Dr and started treatment.
Avatar f tn 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. Little did I know then there was no such test. A few days later I received a call from my Dr's office saying the test came back negative.
Avatar n tn Ive been using imiquimod for almost the full term. The area affected is between my scrotum and inner thigh crease. In the matter of a night i got redness and sores. Ive stopped using it and wash daily. It doesnt help that its right where my jeans and underwear ride. Any help in relief?
Avatar m tn do you have hsv1 or hsv2? is it unusual for more warts to show up like this? no it is not. you might want to have them surgically removed in the office instead of using the cream to help speed things up.
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?
Avatar f tn Hello, 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. In my opinion you should talk to a cosmetologist/dermatologist about this and get these warts evaluated.

Avatar f tn It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person. For small warts that affect only the skin around the anus, 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 n tn Have your doctor freeze them. Only hurts for a little while and gone completely in about 3 days. Quick and Easy. After contracted the warts can show up anywhere. Skin to skin contact is how this is contracted. Regarding Pregnancy you should speak to your doctor about this . How long have you had this?
Avatar m tn I applied this cream for 3 times a day, and after 6 days the warts fell off naturally. I had tried Imiquimod, Aldara and some other creams for a while without seeing improvements. My girlfriend used Imiquimod and got positive results. Maybe, I was not so lucky.
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 f tn Aldara (imiquimod) Cream treatment should continue until there is total clearance of the genital/perianal warts or for a maximum of 16 weeks. It should be left on the skin for 6 -10 hours, after which time the cream should be removed by washing the area with mild soap and water. It shows results frequently after 6-8 weeks of use. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn Your dermatologist has much more experience using imiquimod (Aldara) than I do. We don't use it as the main warts treatment in our STD clinic and I have personally treated very few patients with it. Please confirm my replies with your dermatologist. 1) The research studies with imiquimod applied it only to overt, visible warts. In theory, broader application might eradicate the more widespread HPV infection that usually accompanies warts, but to my knowledge this hasn't been studied.
Avatar m tn I have had genital warts for over a year. I have been using Imiquimod cream for about 2 months now. Most or all of the warts have disappeared. Toward the end of the treatment, however, one area of my penis became very red and the middle part of the red area has started to scab (see included picture). It has been this way for about 2 weeks now. Is this redness and scabbing normal with Imiquimod use? Should I be putting some kind of antibiotic cream (neosporin, etc.) on this area?

Avatar f tn I got tested for all STDs except genital warts.  My results were negative. My doctor said that there was no way to test for warts until I actually have a visible bump. This person is now my ex. I don't want to move on with my life and find out that I've been spreading gw. I'm so terrified. I only had sex with my ex one time. We used a condom but he took it off during. I noticed it wasn't on anymore about halfway through.

Avatar n tn I am a 38 year old, HIV negative man. I've had anal warts for six months-- mostly on the outside, but two inside. I have received five treatments with Podophyllin and the warts are definitely much smaller but have not completely cleared. My doctor is suggesting laser sugery, although he is willing to do more treatments with Podophyllin if I want to. I have heard that laser surgery is extremely painful and that the warts may still come back anyway. My questions: 1.
Avatar f tn had the surgery and he left 4 obvious warts . I was pissed!! went back 3 weeks later for a follow up.warts had already started to return. he said he needed to do surgery again because I had something aggressive there. I read that HPV 6 and 11 cause most warts and really ever cause any other problems? Even with insurance surgery is expensive and after He missed warts I didnt trust Him. I went to planned Parenthood and Im on week 3 of Aldara.
