ALDARA SIDE EFFECTS PLEASE HELP

hi there i have recently been using aldara cream for my anal warts (HPV) I have used it twice so far friday and monday. And today (tuesday) i have been feeling muscle pain, and i guess some kind of fever i feel cold or hot at various times of the day but i can function... but during the weekend i did play soccer and hockey and did sweat a lot and ran a lot. is this something to be concerned about or should i continue using aldara and if these symptoms continue talk to my doctor or should i stop all together?

Yeah this is a side effect of aldara, almost flu like symptoms, discontinue and consult your doctor for alternatives.

hey mitch is it okay if i discontinue aldara and not notify my doctor and just wait until my surgery date which is less than a month away? or is it really important to consult my doctor and tell him i have these side effects, which he didnt explain i may have if i take aldara he just said how to use it... i had to do my own research
