It sort of worked. The fist time I used it the size of the warts changed dramatically. They became about half the size they were before the treatment. After I had them frozen again and they came back I tired Imiquimod again. This was about a year later. I had to stop after about a month because I began to get rashes all over my body Armpits crotch chest and now my eyelids. Its extremely unpleasant. Since Ive stopped the treatment its gotten better but still bothersome.
2 weeks in - genital wart reduced 50% in size, beginnings of redness and ulceration. within the week the pin prick sized ulcer which grew directly ontop of part of the wart, scabbed and then fell off, taking that part of the wart with it. after 4 weeks the rest of the wart did the same, scab, scab comes off, section of wart is gone underneath. 5 weeks tomorrow, wart appears totally gone. area is left red and irritated, like i popped a large zit in the spot. good result.

On third month. Ive experienced serious side affects like burning itching bleeding ulcers and flu like symptoms. I have to say that even though I have these side affects I still use it in hopes of my genital warts disappearing. So i am going to pick up my last months supply tomorrow. I have just last week noticed that the size of my warts are decreasing. So hopefully the last prescription will work.

When I researched Aldara for my tiny patch of GW, I completely freaked out about the negative side effects. Finally used it and they were gone in 1.5 weeks. A bit of itching & scabbing, but not bad at all!
It worked for me, had a little rash but thats all.

Been using it for almost two weeks now and my warts are almost gone. I just finished my 5th treatment and Im probably going to skip my 6th because the skin that Ive been using it on has become a little red and irritated. Its not severe but Im not taking any chances. Other than that everythings been going very smoothly. Ive been applying the cream exactly the way they tell you to and I go on a MonWedFri night basis. At this rate they should be gone in about 2 weeks or so.

Followed freezing with Aldara and seems to be effective. Still using
