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 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 Hi guys, I wanted to check and see what kind of side effects some people here have experienced from imiquimod (hopefully I'm not the only one here who has used imiquimod cream for GW). The reason I ask is because I've gotten a pretty nasty lesion right under the head of my penis (in an area that I really wasn't even directly applying the cream) and have seen some blood in my semen since I've began using this stuff. Has anyone gotten anything like these? Thank you.
Avatar m tn It cost $180 more in some other drugstores. I bought two boxes and used for 5 ½ weeks Monday to Friday as the vet said. Seemed to work fine but when stopped there was a slight improvement but not as much as hoped for considering the cost. The cream only seemed to work when it was being applied. He now still gets the little scabies. He had a sore and lump on his shoulder where the bigger biopsy was taken that wouldn't stop bleeding.
Avatar m tn 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 they told me they could freeze them off or use a topical cream that is commonly used in chemo therapeutic procedures. Her dr said with her being so young that it is up to me if i want to use the cream and I dont. I also dont want to freeze them off either cause it would hurt her and there are so many. I have looked up home remedies that i plan on trying soon. One being apple cidar vinegar and the other tea tree oil. Hopefully one will work.
Avatar m tn Push about what ? Its in "proof of concept" stage - not exactly sure what phase is that from a medical point of view its gonna take next 5 years or so before they finish all the trials and test treatment programs before they will say "This is the new way - go go go ". For instance I'm in a trial for safety and efficiency of combo vs mono therapy of Tenofovir + Pegasys.
Avatar m tn It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person. Exactly what it is can be confirmed only after examination and biopsy.I sincerely advise you to consult a dermatologist soon. Hope it helps.Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn the first layer of skin is gone on every bump. I used imiquimod cream twice. I think this is what caused some burning and headaches. Two new bumps appeared yesterday at the top of shaft near where the 10 are. They look the same size as a large zits. One popped during washing. Thick white liquid and a solid white piece came out. like a zit. Rash in groin is raw. first layer of skin is peeling off. I think from rubbing during walking. I will be going to get a culture next week.
Avatar f tn Hello, Aldara is Imiquimod which is used in treatment of basal cell carcinoma having normal immune system and it is not used for squamous cell carcinoma.

Avatar f tn I'm not an expert, but from what I understand it is used to treat other things then just warts and has been used to treat areas of concern regarding skin cancer- as far as skin tags in the genital area- I believe they just remove them more then give you medication for them. I'd head to your local pharmacy and just ask them if they know of this medication being used for skin tags- your pharmacists are usually the biggest help when it comes to uses and interactions of prescriptions.

Avatar m tn i also have that when on imiquimod, it is probably genreal inflammation, i d not pay too much attention to it as regards vit d and calcium there are news from vit k2, it looks like k2 is needed to take calcium out of blood and fix it to bones and that vit d toxicity is just k2 deficency, so researchers suggest to take 200-300mcg of k2 while on vit d to balance this will prevent any calcium accumulation vit k2 is produced by our gut bacteria and has no toxicity at any dose, it also prevents liv
Avatar m tn For a businessman, you have very little understanding of what a VENTURE fund is. They are for-profit and they invest in many projects.
936016 tn?1332769204 The sensitivity of anal cytology is regarded as poor and so is used in conjunction with high resolution anoscopy, where medical professionals will look for the precursor lesion to anal cancer known as a high grade squamos intraepithelial lesion (HSIL). A number of studies have been carried out to try and assess how great the risk of anal cancer is to gay men in a bid to identify groups that could benefit from routine anal cancer screening.
Avatar n tn I have extremely tiny warts covering all of my outer labia and some of my inner labia.I was wondering what the best option would be for me to get rid of them.I mean there is not a single spot that does not have the tiny warts on them.I went to the doctor and I do know that it is indeed HPV.I have already had to have the loop(?) procerdure done because of having cervical dsyplesia(sp?).
Avatar m tn Anyhow, my question is about the top of my penis. There is a black discoloration on the glans. There is no raised growth, rather looks flat. There are some smaller dots around the glans as well. And i think a new one is also forming. I am scared it could be cancer or turn into cancer. If they are just warts and were raised, i would get them treated but they look like they are in the skin, rather on the skin or under the skin.
Avatar m tn According to what I've read it's also rare for genital warts to spread to the mouth. Try not to worry at this stage, until you know for sure what it is. It might even just be a benign cyst or a gland perhaps. If you're really worried I would demand they take a very small biopsy so they can identify exactly what the lump is.
Avatar m tn hi what is Tagamet?
Avatar n tn Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation. Steroids are not used for genital warts.

Avatar m tn I have what I think is a wart on my lower lip. I have tried freezing it several times but to no avail. I is getting bigger and is very unsightly. I have soaked it before over the counter freezing and have also used sandpaper to open up the wart before freezing. Everytime I freeze it about 1/2 the wart gets hard and can be removed. I then freeze it again. Not going away!!! Please give me a few more ways. No health insurance.
Avatar m tn After almost 3 months of waiting for the window period to pass, I remembered using Imiquimod, a medication used for treating genital warts, on my penis (because I thought I had a wart there, which I didn't after all). The point is that this medication causes flu like symptoms. How did I know that it was Imiquimod the responsible of causing all these? Well, I used it again yesterday because I had a small wart on my hand and voilá, the exact same fever, myalgias, headache and all.
Avatar f tn What treatment we should take for it? Right now she is taking medicine of homeopathy. What cream should prefer if burning pain persists?
Avatar m tn 1, I read your posts and found hpv is quite common among adults. So do I need to worry about it? And will hpv 52 and 59 cause warts? 2, Is it useful for me to use Imiquimod with no genital warts? Or does Imiquimod useful to help me clear the hpv virus in three months? 3, I also have an ulcers on my penis a week ago which can be seen when it's wet (it become white), and it disappear after 5 days. I kind of thought it's because of the allergy of Imiquimod.
Avatar m tn Also, there was scabbing two days after liquid nitrogen was used. What was left was an open lesion. Second doctor showed me pictures of warts and my lesion looked nothing like a skin tag.
Avatar m tn off labels therapies are common in italy and i have found clinics using off label interferon+imiquimod for hpv and they say with increadible high success they also say that imiquimod is good used on mucosa because absorption is more, just needed close doctors monitroing in case of inflammation
Avatar m tn Hi, My doctor diagonized me with GW in January, I have been usinf Podofilox cream and liquid for almost 4 months with not much improvement as small bumps keep appearing pretty much every other week. Doctor switched me to Iminoquid, to be used 5 days/week for 16 weeks. Completed week 6. In the interim, did cold freeze on 3 different instances. I read a lot here about different after effects after using imminoquid. But, i never experienced any. It feels as if I applied cold cream. Is that normal?
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 m tn It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person. Exactly what it is can be confirmed only after examination and biopsy. 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.
