Genital warts

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all.

Got diagnosed with genital warts just after Christmas. Thankfully all my other tests came back negative.

Been prescribed aldara 5% cream.

First few times I used it , it absolutely wrecked my bum. Almost like a really bad nappy rash. Couldn't sit down. Also gave me flu like symptoms., my whole body was aching.

Anyone else experience this? Any tips on how to apply without this happening ? I really want to get rid of them so don't want to give up on the treatment yet

Thanks in advance!
