I have used Aldara......believe it or not, for my big horse!!!!!! He had a large growth (plaque) removed from his ear. Aldara was prescribed by my vet.....it is liquid gold as far as I'm concerned
BUT it did work!
What kind of side effects did you have??
I know it's a horse, but......
Anoki's ear became VERY inflamed. The whole inside of his ear became super sensitive, red, oozing....that kind of stuff. So we had to change the treatment slightly and not apply it as often. That was last September that it was done....his ear has been back to normal for over 6 months now, and no signs of the growth coming back *touch wood* I had to put a fly mask with ears on him, but when this reaction started happening, we wondered if it was causing more problems than it was helping, so we stopped using it. Like I said, don't know if that is any help or not...but that's the only experience I have with it.
