Avatar m tn Hello, Sorry replied to an earlier post first. These lesions can be due to contact dermatitis to Imiquimod. Do not use it further without medical guidance. Apply Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. Also wear cotton underwears. You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn I was referred to a gynecologist who suggested trying imiquimod. I decided to try tea tree oil, before trying imiquimod. The tea tree seemed to increase the itch, so I filled the imiquimod. I've since tried one application, I should be applying again this evening, but this point I am so stressed about the whole ordeal, I am thinking I should just get them surgically removed. They are now around my vaginal area, labia up to my anus (I apologize for being graffic...
Avatar m tn ec_id=NCOMMS-20130305 Aldara is a cream used for topical treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer, and is thought to act through stimulation of anti-tumour immunity. The active ingredient, imiquimod, has been shown to stimulate toll-like receptor 7. Aldara also induces psoriasis-like lesions when applied to naive murine skin, and as such is used as a mouse model for psoriasis. Here we find that in naive murine skin, Aldara induces inflammation largely independently of toll-like receptor 7.

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 Aldara is used for several skin conditions. Your doctor will tell you where to apply Aldara cream, and how often and for how long to apply it for your condition. Aldara should be applied just before bedtime and left on the skin for 6-10 hours. If your skin condition reappears you need to talk to your doctor.
687098 tn?1240893020 Hi, There is no single treatment for warts that is 100% effective and different types of treatment may be combined. You should consult a skin specialist for the symptoms. If these are plane warts - she would benefit by using salicylic acid cream, cryotherapy, curettage and light cautery. If these are filiform warts - cryotherapy or curettage and light cautery would help.
Avatar n tn We have 4 year old twins girls that have warts coming up on their hands, legs, feet, and now their faces. We would like to know how tagament helps with the warts, and if there is anything else we can do?
Avatar m tn Hello, Vergen is a herbal cream for warts and the discoloration can be due to allergic reaction to this cream. You should not use it without doctor’s guidance. 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 Here we have this problem of long waiting appointments. How do you manage to have both ETV and TDF. One needs to be on empty stomach and the other with food. So I think you need to take them separately at different times? Did your DNA went to undetectable after you took ETV+TDF? Thank you so much and I wish you will have success in Sep and your body will be able to clear the virus.

Avatar n tn If however you have to remove them please make sure to use gloves and inform your doctor before doing so.

Avatar m tn High blood pressure Kidney damage Thyroid work impairment Hair growth stop Lympodystrophy and muscle loss Lactic acid build up Macrophage toxicity possilble dna damage fatty liver build up These people have access to better drugs but dont use them. Instead it is tdf or etv. Dont people get it that these drugs kill at about the same rate as hbv does? It is enough talk about these nucs. Demand better drugs people.
Avatar n tn Further, some untreated warts will continue to grow, even to giant size--in rare cases up to an inch in diameter--this isn't common, but it's not pleasant when it happen. So as this implies, I don't think it is a wise decision to not treat and just wait for the warts to go away. If you try it, be prepared to start treatment promptly if your warts increase in size.
Avatar m tn I am 26 I'm losing may hair in the head 1 year ago and now I'm losing my hair in my whole body...I'm wondering if priorin n can help me with my problem?or what else can I use to stop and regrow my hair...
Avatar m tn I would expect that one week after irbesartan add on the bile acids w With regard to the question of waiting how the quant hbsag further responds to the 50mg ezetimibe, before trying the irbesartan, there is no simple answer. In my opinion, if the ezetimibe blocks HBV reinfection mildly to moderatly, we should expect a shift of the surface antigen over time to a lower value, but there is likely a new level, a new equilibrium where it will stabilize.
Avatar m tn One big one at the bottom of the shaft, and two right under the glans (near the rim) I suspect the first one at the bottom is due to imiquimod rubbing off onto it during sleep, the skin looks to have came off and it is regrowing, but it is not red or inflammed really. The other ones near the glans are red and ulcerated. I hope it is not herpes. Also the glans rim on one side has small little bumps on it.. sort of like irritation , but they are pale colored. What do I do?
Avatar m tn , I used it and 4 of the warts went away, but the last regular wart did not..I continued to use Podofilox a few more times and then all the other flat warts came back..They look like dark circular spots in my inner thigh....How can I remove this?...Is there a stronger prescription or a home remedies I can use?...Thanks in advance...
Avatar m tn Since that time, I've met different doctors who tried to treat the warts with cryosurgery first and then Trichloroacetic acid. No matter how often we would do the treatments, the warts kept coming back. Three months ago, a doctor gave me the cream Vyloma. For the first time, I saw encouraging results. I used the for 8 weeks, as prescribed. The warts were gone but now (3 weeks later), I see that a small one seems to be coming out again.
Avatar n tn Does any one know if this stuff really works,or is there any pre-cautions or side affects that I should be aware of?How long does it take to see results?I was told to apply this cream three times a week.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I then noticed that I hadnt got any hairs on my arms and now, my normal hair loss on my head has increased. I use to have very thick hair and wasnt too concerned to begin with, but I am getting quite worried now. I have been to my doctor but they cannot give me a specialist appointment for some time. I am 57 years old, have not taken any birth control pills for 25 years. Can you help???
Avatar m tn Hi there, Molluscum is caused by a virus and this makes it contagious. It spreads through direct skin to skin contact. However, molluscum affects only the superficial part of the skin and does not stay in the body once the bumps are removed. The best way to prevent its spread is by having these treated. Laser therapy, curettage and cryotherapy are the available treatment options.
Avatar f tn Red light collagen therapy is used for healing of wounds like diabetic skin ulcers, serious burns, and severe oral sores and proposed to be helpful in erasing wrinkles but I am unaware of its use in stucco keratosis.

Avatar n tn Hello, It looks like folliculitis after shaving. Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

Avatar m tn Other options for topical therapy include iodine and salicylic acid, potassium hydroxide, tretinoin, cantharidin, and imiquimod and must be prescribed by your doctor. Keep the area clean and dry and try to avoid manipulating the lesion to prevent secondary infection. Discuss which treatment option is best suited for you with your doctor. Take care and regards.
