So, I have used aldara and I can say that it really does help when your problem is related with warts. I have had about 4 warts like in a little group and this group was located in the area between my vagina and my anus and it was very uncomfortable and awkward. When I firstly visited my doctor telling her what’s my problem it was very awkward but good for me that she is a good specialist and really helped me out. She gave me this drug and in about 2 weeks or so those warts have disappeared completely and now I don’t even have a sign of them, like they never were there. I can surely say that this drug have worked wonders for the warts so I can assume that it will work for everybody who’s having troubles with them. but, I need to warn you that the treatment is a little bit unpleasant and uncomfortable. But it is worth it. It’s uncomfortable because after a couple of uses, the area were the group of warts were located has become irritated and a little bit sore. I’m just telling you this because if you intend to use this drug you might want to know this so you won’t be scared that something goes wrong. This is completely normal and trust me a little bit of discomfort is definitely worth the results this drug would provide you. the doctor who prescribed this drug told me that she thinks that this drug is the best one for warts even though it creates that bit of discomfort. She mentioned that this drug doesn’t leave any scars (and now I see that she’s right) plus it can help you to avoid some new warts to grow in that area where you have had them (and so far I can see that she’s right with this point too). You also might need to know one more thing, this drug is quite expensive but I assume that a good product that really would work has to be expensive. I think that a simple, cheap product won’t work the same way as an expensive one would. Plus, expensive is quite relative because a one month supply with aldara (in case you don’t have an insurance) would cost you around $300 so for somebody it might be a problem but for others won’t. for me it weren’t because my insurance helped me. moreover, even though it seems expensive, a little bit of this drug can go a pretty long way and that is why if you use it correctly, you can do this drug (and this means your money too) to last much long by using just half of the packed at once. That is why I can say that it will cost you $150 for getting rid of one group of warts and it will leave you no scars or something like that. maybe for others it won’t seem such a good idea but for me $150 with a little bit of discomfort is definitely worth getting rid of those things. hope this helps.
