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 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 my husband is currently using imiquimod for genital warts, my question is once the warts are gone can i still contract hpv in the mouth or throat? or can you only get hpv orally when the warts are present?
Avatar m 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. Injections are not given usually.
Avatar m tn If she does these things, along with being immunized with Gardasil, she will never have a serious problem with HPV. HPV is only a bit of DNA with a protein coating that evolved to exploit human intimacy for its own propagation. Don't let such a trivial thing seriously impact romance, love, and mutually rewarding sex!
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with type 6 or 11 HPV last week when my gyno discovered a few warts on the hymen area. I was devestated. He gave me Imiquimod and it seems to be having amazing results except one thing: I'm in so much pain I can't go to the bathroom without crying or screaming. I called the doc and he gave me lidocaine which helps but even putting it on initially is unbearable. What can I do to soothe this pain? Its rattling my nerves and I'm horrified to go to the bathroom.
Avatar f tn Speak to your family doctor. Or go see your GYN. Or to Planned Parenthood. Get yourself tested for HPV. If he has warts, you have been infected. That you have not shown any visible warts doesn't mean you don't have it. Sex with active warts is unwise for his recovery. Get the vaccine to protect you from strains that you don't already have. This isn't a big deal for most. Who gave it to who is not important.
Avatar m tn 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. Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation.
Avatar n tn I initially saw a doctor at a walk-in-clinic who was quick to diagnose it as an HPV wart and prescribe me Vyloma (Imiquimod) cream to apply it until it goes away. I was extremely concerned so I made an appointment at a local sexual health clinic for that same day, and the doctor there told me it was indeed a wart but most likely not HPV. My question is this: - Should I use the Imiquimod regardless? Can it help even if it is not an HPV wart?

Avatar m tn Hi. I was diagnosed with HPV five years ago. 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 m tn I think i see them appearing but am unsure. If they are warts, how long does it take for the hpv virus to grow to its full size? What do you recommend?
Avatar f tn Hi I was diagnosed with HPV Genital Warts a few days ago. My understanding of this STD is next to nothing. He confirmed HPV Genital Warts by doing a vinegar test on what I thought were just bumps. I have tried emailing him and calling him a couple of days during the week, but he hasn't gotten back to me and I need answers. Here is what I believe to understand about this STD. Please correct me if I get anything wrong.
Avatar n tn Dr. I had some questions about HPV and was hoping you could help. I recently had one tiny wart removed from the penile shaft and have no others currently. The Dr scraped it out and cauterized the wound. My questions are: 1) Is there a better way to remove them if they occur again and is it painful(such as freezing them) 2)How long could someone have HPV and not know it 3) Is it true people with 5 or more partners in their lifetime have almost certainly had HPV at some point?
Avatar n tn Assuming you actually have warts, there are several recommended treatments, both provider-applied (freezing, podophyllin, and bi- or trichloroacetic acid) and prescriptions products named podofilox (Condylox) and imiquimod (Aldara). All are more or less equally effective, although some work better in some persons.
Avatar m tn Are there any steps my girlfriend could take at this point to attempt to reduce the potential future effects of the HPV if my bump was a wart? If she does eventually end up with warts, will we re-infect/spread/exacerbate the condition in each other if we continue to have sex? Any other advice for me/her/us? Thanks!
Avatar m tn Despite this fact, only a tiny minority of persons with HPV get the consequences of infection (primarily women and primarily cancer and pre-cancerous lesions). HPV is the most commonly acquired STD. Over 85% of sexually active women will have HPV infection at some time in their lives and within two years of starting to have sex, whether with a single partner or not, on average about 2/3 of persons will have HPV. The figure for men is less well studied but similar.
Avatar m tn I am 30 yr old white man, I noticed a couple small warts on my penis recently, upon seeing the doc I was informed that I acquired HPV at some point. I was prescribed this SUPER expensive cream (no insurance) called Imiquimod 5% cream, generic for Aldera, and I have been applying it for about a week and a half. I must admit that I have not been taking it exactly like I was told because there seemed to be a little wiggle room regarding application schedules. 3x a week, M/W/F or T/Th/S, the Dr.
1256465 tn?1269665299 Hello and thanks for your help, I had/have hpv. It was one wart a year ago and after I had it frozen off I never had any come back. However, I have developed some sort of obsession with it, and have gone to great lengths to prevent it from coming back. I have taken Aldara when there were no signs symptoms, as a preventative action; perhaps killing, or at least hindering the virus.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Aldara (imiquimod) to get rid of a few perianal HPV warts since cryotherapy was only making it worse. After only about 2 weeks of usage almost all symptoms of the warts were gone however I now have perianal psoriasis in its place. That is one of the side-effects of imiquimod and it mainly strikes people whom are genetically prone to having psoriasis.
1297646 tn?1275465752 There are more than 100 types of Human papillomavirus (HPV), one third of which are spread through sexual contact. How Many People have Genital Warts? HPV is one of the common sexually transmitted diseases. According to the Department of Health and Human Services it is estimated that there are 5.5 million new cases of HPV in the US each year. At least 20 million Americans are infected already. What do Genital Warts look like?

15953119 tn?1447147561 The color of these bumps are same as my skin. 6 days past, they did not change. So my question is that is possible for me to get genital warts(HPV) by blowjob(top to 1 minute)? and now what should I do about these bumps, I am really really anxiety, please someone can help me, I would be appreciate it, thank you and you time very much.
Avatar m tn Ofcourse after I have made several researches, talked with a few people, and seen the doctor, I had contracted HPV in the anus area. The doctor prescribed me Aldara which is a cream to treat genital warts. I was told to apply it 3 times a week, and Ive been doing it so, until a week ago when I researched all about Aldara and it says to do it twice a week. I am currently in week 8. So The warts are gone.. they were gone on week 4, but now the issue is this.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am a 43 yr. old female. I just found out I had HPV in Oct. If course very scared and freaked out. This site has really helped me and I thank you for this. My Dr. gave me Vlyoma. 1x per night for 4 weeks. I am on my 3rd week but I've had to take a break. I am extreamly red and swollen. It has cleared the tiny warts that I did have however I can't really tell if they are gone as I think I need to heal. My questions are: is this cream simular to Aldera?
Avatar m tn I've started to notice these skin tags on my foreskin by the glands and what not. They said it's HPV and i got tested for other stuff which came out negative. Since those bumps were too small they can't use acid or whatever to get rid of them and they didn't give me any cream for it. I bought this russian liquid that supposedly is good against these things. It like burns them off and i used it. It hurt like hell and i had to quickly wash it off but it did the trick i guess.
Avatar f tn I have HPV. I am very educated on the virus. The only thing I need to know about treatments for my warts.
Avatar m tn I managed to get hold of imiquimod and put that on, but it has not made any difference. Is this HPV? They do not hurt or cause any symptoms. There is just a very significant difference in my glans on one side of the meatus to the other, and it was not there before. The complexity is that I am married. I had an HIV test which was negative. Included is a photo and the area of concern is on the side of my hand.
