Aldara

I just happened to have some Aldara left over that I was using on a skin cancer last year, so I started using it yesterday. Cold laser treatment reduced my nodules considerably (one disappeared completely, along with the cords), but there is still a very, very small nodule remaining. Will report back if there is any improvement using Aldara.

Aldara

there are no known properly conducted scientific trials of this product. 3M the manufacturer hasn't conducted any. We don't know of any DUPS sufferer who has tried and come up with concrete evidence.
I have had what I hope is an Aldara success on a new nodule size reduction but I have stated that I have also had a Kenalog injection. Was it Kenalog? Was it Aldara? Was it a combination of the two? Or what..? But nevertheless cause for cautious optimism.
I have made contact with 3M and asked if a clinical trial could be arranged for DUPS sufferers. They have replied and my request is being sent higher up. I'm not holding my breath though.
IMHO it will take a Dr Eaton and others to go forward and work out the best application regime and time needed and collect results data. By regime I mean the frequency of applying the cream and length of treatment. Diseases that Aldara has been successful in treating have required different rates of application. Some every day for a week then alternate days, others all the way alternate days and so on.
Larry/Eaton suggested Aldara would work better after NA when the immune system is more activated. That makes sense.

application of Aldara

I am applying the cream, then applying a telfa pad to the area over the top of the cream, then I sleep in soft, white gloves. I secure the telfa with paper tape. It seems to work well in keeping the telfa in place.

I am hopeful this will be of some help to others who are suffering with Dups.

Hi GWB

I have a GP who looks outside the square. I take to him printouts of internet Med Pubs - articles such as the ones Dr Denkler has referred to on this forum to back up my case. Once he has perused these, and no doubt comfortable re any malpractice ramifications, he has written the relevant script.
The Kenolog for my feet I take to a Podiatrist and he injects. This podiatrist has spent many hours observing foot surgery including Ledderhose. For my hand I have a highly qualified orthodaedic theatre nurse to do the job.
This GP came on side once he saw the handywork of Lermusiaux.

Aldara/Kenalog

Randy

One of our forum members and a local resident told me Dr Eaton gave him Kenalog shots at the time of his NA.
I wonder what he did in Larry's case?
Larry could you let us know.
