You should be monitored for side effects, response, other issues etc. That said, Aldara (imiquimod) or Imiquimod cream would be what I would recommend.

Can I drink reed's extra ginger brew (26mg fresh ginger) in 1st trimester? I have been for m/s, but read too much ginger can cause birth defects & m/c

So, unless prescribed by your doc, I recommend stay safely away from it. Good luck. ...Read more
Three numbers.: Your home BP tester gives you 3 numbers. The pulse is your heart rate, which should be 60-100. Your BP is systolic/diastolic, and should be no higher than 120/80. If you carry a diagnosis of high BP already, then your target is no higher than 130/90 (130/80 if you're diabetic), but closer to 120/80 would be even better still. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
