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 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 It started as a single tiny pimple like bump on my penis glans. After starting treatment with imiquimod, the lesion started to disappear, but as soon as it did, three others appeared on the other side of the penis glans. And after those disappeared, another one appeared...Is it common to new lesions appear during treatment? To make matters worse, I am in an acute Herpes infection, already diagnosed.
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 My daughter had warts on her fingers, now starting to develp on her lip, tried compound w on fingers, keep coming back, tried witch hazel/apple cider vingar on lip-not working any suggestions?
Avatar m tn how do you get rid of warts, I have tried everything. all over the counter, and currently go to laser treatment. I am also trying apple cider vineager, seems like it may be working, but, the bumps I have had for 5 years because are still there. How do you get the extra skin to go away with it.
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 n tn I had no idea picking warts could make them contageous. I had a couple when I was younger and picked them and they went away. Now after reading about them spreading I'm really paranoid. I was wondering what are the chances that they will spread to my face or genitals if I have picked them?
Avatar m tn hi doctor Keyes i keep getting warts on my hands,it started with just one five years ago,went and had it removed by the nurse,got another ,had it taken care of ,now it has progresed to multiple on one hand and one on the other,can you please tell me why and how to get rid of them for good.
Avatar m tn I had a general outbreak of genital warts that were treated with cryotherapy, and do not appear to have recurred, except in one instance. There's one wart location that I've had treated several times, most recently 4 months ago. In place of the wart, that area has become a red, flat, slightly raised bump in a region of lighter skin. A doctor said that the red bump is just a scar that has reacted, and it does not turn white with the application of vinegar.
Avatar n tn I have talked to several docs some use cryo but I have not found any that use laser. None even brought up imiquimod which I learned about online and feel that it might be best in my situation. It seems they prescribe whatever they are familiar with. Also a transmission question. Would my partner get the condyloma exactly where my affected skin touched theres? or could it pop up anywhere on them once they have contracted it? Also does my sperm carry the hpv virus?
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 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 f tn I was recently diagnosed with gw and have been using imiquimod cream for exactly one month. I have a few questions so if you have been through this experience please help! 1. Is it normal for warts to spread when you begin treatment? Mine haven't spread drastically but it definitely seems that it is getting worse instead of better 2. How long does it take before you start seeing results? 3. How effective has this treatment been for you guys? Were there any bad side effects?
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 m tn Im pretty sure i have filiform warts on the shaft of my penis, i have done my research and all the descriptions match it, how should i treat this? contagious?
Avatar m tn I got my first genital warts about 4 years ago. I had several that popped up and spread pretty rapidly at first (like 6-7 of them) and got them burned off by a doctor. Then I had a second outbreak with several more, and again got them burned off. The doctor then prescribed me with imiquimod in case any others popped up after that.
