So irresponsible its unreal. I mean who the hell does this? Doctors dont have a bloody clue.... just cos they've got the title they think theyre kings of the world.... and you dont need to be a rocket scientist to figure out what i did!!!!

Told by dermatologist to apply Aldara to chest area three times per week to eliminate precancer third week started getting red sores on chest so i called the Quack and was told this was normal and continue applying. By the forth week i was getting very tired and my whole body hurt like i had the flu so i quit applying Aldara. Flu feeling intensified as well as feeling sick to my stomach and a major headache and my back hurt as well as my Bones and feet. I felt like i had cancer now. Called my dermatologist in mean Quack and told him my symptoms he told me that they were not related to the Aldara and to see my primary care doctor. Primary care doctor told me it was from the Aldara that i should have stopped putting it on when the sores appeared.

I have been using Aldara for the last month and began developing reactions (redface, swelling at sight). Given the reactions I'm experiencing using Aldara, I was wondering if it would be safe to get the seasonal and H1N1 vaccinations while taking Aldara?

I have suffered injury from Aldara and want to know if there is anyone else out there that has been injured .
