Topical anti-tumor medication ## What is aldara used for? What are the side effects? ## My GP is pressuring me to use Aldara on multiple skin cancers on arms and legs caused by autoimmune meds eg Azathioprine. I have resisted so far but because of the numbers, he is saying “ I can’t keep chopping these out there are too many” The specialist will not reduce or stop the Aza even though my blood readings are very good. Help!

2 and a half years I have suffered from taking Aldara. The muscle and nerve damage has disabled my left arm. My hips, knees, elbows, have all been compromised. I suffer gland and throat swelling when bitten by an insect. I have lost 80% of my physical strength. I lose consciousness from time to and pass out, nerve damage is severe. ## Hi Darren, Sorry to hear about your situation with Aldara. Have you taken any sort of legal action or visited a doctor regarding these side effects? I would like to offer more helpful advice, but it's not clear on what type of information you are seeking or asking for. I found several articles on the potential side effects of this drug and I would certainly agree that it's not something that should be taken lightly. My last question is, why would y...

I have developed facial rash, can Canex v help get rid of them? ## Hello, Ray! How are you? The best thing to do would be to see your doctor to discover what has caused the rash and find out what the appropriate treatment would be. If Canex V is used inappropriately, it could actually make it worse. The FDA lists its typical side effects as including skin redness, dryness and irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I use Canex T for my excema on my eye? ## i have warts on my thighs and around vagine for more than 4yrs.i consult many doctor and they priscribe aldara cream but its not worried plz help ## M suffering from eczaema,ring worms on my body n auckney on my face,i don't know wat to use pls help

I used aldara and have surffered from many side effects for the past two years. I have had constant muscle, joint, bone and skin pain for two years. I also suffered from digestive disorders including severe constipation. I have also had problems with my blood pressure and fainting. I was wondering if anyone else out there suffered from injuries like mine. I am signed in for a class action suit. Just wondering how many others have had this sort of problems after using aldara. ## Also I was treated for Afib before using aldara, but it was controlled with meds. Its seems to be worse now, as well at the passing out episodes that began during aldara treatments. ## Aldara contains topical Imiquimod, it is an immune response modifier that is used to treat several skin conditions. candle678, ex...
