Over the counter treatment for genital warts

Hi doc,

Please could you give me the name of an over the counter cream that I can buy here in South-Africa to treat genital warts? I have seen a soctor before and had them burned off but I would now like to try a cheaper alternative to see if it works. I have also had pap smears and they all came back normal.

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately, there is no cheap over the counter alternative. You can ask your pharmacist Aldara cream. It is very effective but quite expensive. The treatment will cost +/- R700.

Aldara is a topical cream used to treat genital warts, minor form of superficial skin cancers (superficial basal cell carcinoma), and actinic keratoses. It is an immune response modifier that works by stimulating the body's own defence mechanisms to fight the virus. You can buy this from here http://www.internationaldrugmart.com/aldara.html

I hope you have researched Aldara!! I can't believe a doctor would prescribe this.. The only reason it's out there is lack of knowledge on it or kick backs from recommending it.

Please do your research on Aldara, I hope that you can find a natural option, and there are many. It's not worth hurting yourself long term.

Have your say
