I started using Aldara to address an issue of a large area of "pinched skin". When prescribed the Aldara, my doctor didn't make me concerned about this area as being anything unusual or not normal. A few days after using the Aldara, I began to form sores and redness in that area as well as on my genitals. A GYN said I had herpes and sent out a culture. I'm waiting for the results. However, she didn't want to discuss the possibility of the Aldara causing the reaction.
Has anyone else experienced this? Because I've never had symptoms of Herpes and the doctor scared me tremendously.
