I have never used Aldara but I know it's pretty powerful stuff so I could see that it would cause some bleeding. Why don't you wait until after you through with treatments and then see what happens. If it continues, see a dr.
I have personally used Aldara (though I am a woman) and it caused no abnormal bleeding in me. The worst I experienced was some blistering, red skin, itching, ulcerations, etc. While I'd have to reference it again, I saw nothing mentioned in the pamphlet included with the medication regarding blood in semen as a side effect. This doesn't sound normal, I'd see a doctor promptly just to be safe as this could be something quite serious. If you don't have insurance, I'd recommend a free clinic such as Planned Parenthood.
I have used aldara for awhile.. (i'm female)for me its only made my skin more sensitive and once it gave me a blister which made me bleed. Maybe you shoulod just call and ask your doc about whats going on..I only thought aldara caused local skin reactions.
I'm using aldara right now too, I am a female but my skin has started burning and bleeding too, I talked to my doctor and he said it's normal.
Gosh, this is so embarassing, but thank you all for your comments. Very very appreciated. I'm going to stop the Aldara for a while and see if that changes anything and look to deal with the warts another way, I suppose. Will they just go away on their own?
You can try Apple Cider Vinegar to treat your warts. Take a little peice of cotton, from a cotton ball, and dip it in ACV. Put that on the wart and cover it with a band aid. Do this a couple times a day.
I did this, and it works to dissolve them. It worked better on my penis than it has for my girlfriend however. After about 2 or 3 days of this mine were gone. I then put hydrogen peroxide on it a few times a day to keep it clean.
Worth a shot if you no longer have insurance.
I wouldn't recommend the apple cider vinegar treatment and would stick to FDA approved methods. If you don't have insurance, there are a lot of ways to get free or low cost treatment. I would also recommend going to a doctor for the blood in semen troubles. Lots of people are discussing skin bleeding from a local reaction, but the bleeding you described is going on internally and different and needs to be evaluated by a medical professional.
"I wouldn't recommend the apple cider vinegar treatment and would stick to FDA approved methods"
To each his own I guess.
Seeing as though the FDA would never approve anything that would harm you, correct? Ever read the numerous side effects listed on a package of Aldara?
I have read much about Aldara, as well as used it first hand.
I've just read A LOT of information about the "apple cider vinegar method", including doctor's opinions on it and it doesn't seem best for long-term. Dr. HHH in the expert forums has even written some stuff about this treatment. I have no problems with holistic medicine, but don't think we need to neglect western medicine. I could say more, but I won't on this subject. My main objective is to help the original poster, not to debate holistic treatment.
