Common Questions and Answers about Imiquimod zyclara


Avatar f tn I was using Zyclara (imiquimod) to treat a genital wart. 2 weeks later my scrotum became red and started burning. Eventually it formed a blister, with another scab like sore on my shaft, where the two touch. Concerned that it was herpes, I went to the planned parenthood. The doctor said she doesn't think its herpes and its a reaction from the Zyclara. She swabbed it just to be safe and sent it to get tested. Today they call me and say the lab couldn't get a result.
Avatar m tn Imiquimod (Aldara, Zyclara), Podophyllin and podofilox (Condylox) - should be administered by a doctor. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)- must be applied by a doctor. Surgery: Freezing with liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy) , Electrocautery, Surgical excision and Laser treatments. Use a condom while having intercourse.
Avatar m tn the bi- or tri-chloroacetic acid and/or one or two treatments with imiquimod (Zyclara -- exactly the same as Aldara) probably would cure it. Even if it was a wart, there is no need to worry now about protecting your girlfriend. If it was a wart, then the HPV infection causing it has been present for at least a couple of months, and she has already been repeatedly exposed. It's even possible she has an HPV infection that you acquired from her.
Avatar n tn The anti-wart treatment prescribed probably is imiquimod (trade names Aldara or Zyclara) or podofilox (Condylox). If the diagnosis remains uncertain, I agree a biopsy is a good idea. So it sounds like you are in competent hands. Continue to follow the dermatologist's advice.
Avatar m tn For example, you could speak to your doctor about podophyllin, podofilox (Condylox is the most common brand), imiquimod (Aldara, Zyclara); or perhaps laser cautery or electrocautery. Another approach might be to continue to have them frozen, while also adding podofilox or imiquimod. "Do I have more aggressive strains of these viruses that makes them come back?" Probably not. No particular wart-causing HPV strains are believed to be inherently more aggressive than others.
Avatar m tn freezing, laser, imiquimod (Aldara, Zyclara), podofilox (Condylox), or sinecatechins (Veregen). It will speed up clearance of the visible, diagnosed warts -- but none of these treatments eradicate HPV or treat nearby infected tissues. Think of genital warts like an iceberg -- the obvious part above water, but 90% invisible below the surface.
Avatar m tn The recommended self-applied treatments include podophyllotoxin (the main trade name in the US is Podofilox), imiquimod (Aldara, Zyclara), and sinechatechins (Veregen). Physician-applied office treatments include freezing, podophyllin resin, tri- or bichloroacetic acid, and surgical treatments including laser- or electrocautery. If your warts don't quickly clear up on your current treatment, you should discuss other options with your doctor.
Avatar n tn I have been using Aldara (Imiquimod 5%) cream to treat genital warts for 10 weeks and I still have warts. How long does it usually take to treat warts and what should I notice if I am getting better? I am suppose to be finished the treatment in 2 weeks. Should all the warts be gone by the time I finish treatment?
