Roni and mandi, I have now been sick for 5weeks. So I am in the beginning stages of this dreadful poison. I don't think I am as bad as you guys though who knows maybe it will still get there. Do know that I have had the flu symptoms for an entire 5 weeks. Seems to have hit my lungs though, so everything is flu lung related, but changes daily. I have a sore throat for a few days, then i get proper influenza like rigors, sore joints muscular aches, temp, then I'm coughing this shit is bazare. I have sent my report to the co ilova who markets it in ZA. Mandi they said they have sent the report to australia. A report has also been sent to the medicines board. Funny that you should mention the anti inflammatories. Had a full blood count and the test came back only that I have inflammation. Well guys I am ready for the fight and I will do everything that I can on my side to get this poison off the market. These immoral pharmaceutical companies must be stopped they have no interest in people's health only making money. It is all so sick

Hi Michelle
Funny that you should mention lungs - I have asthma which has been really bad for the last couple of years (only recently diagnosed due to my constant coughing). Now I wonder if it's related. I'm 56 and now need to carry a puffer (I've never needed one before). I think I've had it since I was in my teens, but it's never been a bother until about 2-3 years ago. Aldara is insidious - the damage it does to people far outweighs any possible benefits.
Good on you for the 'let's do something' attitude. I hope someone gives us some ideas and some assistance. We need to do something as a whole - there sure is enough evidence on this blog.
All the best with trying to get well - there must be an answer somewhere ...

Thank you so much for all ur kind responses.
I am still very ill, but am so blessed to be in Calvery Hospital in Canberra
I am on my own as I live 3 hrs away in Sydney. I am being looked after by this wonderful team of drs and nurses.
I was brought here unconscious and no blood pressure. I had propped myself up in the bathroom, sms my husband to say i was sick but ok.
I prepared for my death in the hotel bathroom in Canberra where we were staying
I have been refused medical treatment by hospital emergencies in Sydney. We had decided that we would no longer attempt to receive treatment and whatever happened happened. My darling husband arrived home to me almost dead in a shocking mess in the bathroom. Dying is a very messy business. He eventually called an ambulance. I can't imagine what he went through that night. There is no greater being than my husband Pete. ED saved my life... Took them all day and then a week in intensive care... In and out of consciousness. I am now on a ward and am in so much pain I can't find words. I suppose this is hell.
I used Aldara Cream twice 11 years ago. I have been so sick since. I can't eat or drink without the support of narcotics. I have been in bed again, for the last 2 years.
I have been poisoned by Aldara. There is no doubt. I will be out of pain when I die... Not before.
My family have suffered so much.
Who saw Kony12?
Can we pull together somehow and have 3M2013? Can we do it? Nothing else is getting thru enough. We have to hit the media... Somehow. Come on.... Let's register our names here and see how many there are. Let's rise from the ashes and make a difference.... We r victims, but we don't have to behave like victims. Hit the media then wait for the Lawyers to contact us.
I will register my name first... Mandi De Silva Sydney Australia... I am fighting to have 3m held responsible for the destruction of our immune systems. I am fighting for financial compensation for all Aldara VICTIMS. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE CHANGE AND BRING JUSTICE.

Roni it is deffinately the aldara. People THERE IS NOTHING THAT ALDARA CAN DO FOR YOU, DO NOT TOUCH THIS CRAP ANYBODY PLS. There are other ways of threating whatever you have. Yesterday in touch with a prof who said this stuff is as toxic as hell and that it does alter immune systems. I nearly cried just at the fact that somebody recognized this, have been so frustrated and it's only been 5 weeks since. Mandi my symptoms are not anything like yours, I can't even imagine what you are going through. I have just had the flu and lung thing for 5 weeks. Every f.. Day the symptom changes. Just woke up and guess what I now have an eye infection in the left eye, great, another thing and expense. Richard your lung thing is deffinately aldara. The prof I spoke to yesterday said that it is bad to take any immune builders or stuff that is going to help build up this new and modified immune system. Its just going to give it more petrol. So he suggested milk thistle 2x a day for five days and a really hectic detox and lots of water to try and flush it out my system. I am hoping that mine is not here for ever. I am scared. The pharmaceutical company is getting a weekly day by day account of what is happening to me, they will hear from me make no error. GUYs let's work on getting this shit off the market ASAP come on we can do it. We are going to media etc whatever it takes,
Strength to the both of you Mandi and Roni

Hi Mandi
I live in Canberra. Will you still be here on Monday? If so what ward are you located in? Is there a good time that suits you through the day?

Hi Michele
I can't remember how much I used it - it was over a 2-3 year period (2012-2012I think) through each winter all over my face one year and my lips, shoulders and hands another. I'll have to check my records ...

I will register my name also ... Roni Giacobetti, Canberra Australia... I am fighting to have 3m held responsible for the destruction of our immune systems. I am fighting for financial compensation for all Aldara VICTIMS. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE CHANGE AND BRING JUSTICE.
Please everyone, add your support and ideas to make this work.

Hi Michele
I used Aldara for 2 lots of 4 weeks (1 lot of 4 weeks per consecutive year in 2010 & 2011 with a followup on my lower lip in 2012)- this was all applied exactly as prescribed my Dermatologist.
It seems it was much more than you and Mandi - I'm currently taking hundreds of dollars worth of supplements to keep myself going, and it's really difficult. Fish Oil seems to be helping a bit at the moment.
Cheers

Michele, I applied Aldara Cream twice on 4 basil cell carcinomas. Applied Monday night to all 4 and then Tuesday night to all 4 and Wednesday morning woke up and could not move. I rang my Dermatologist immediately, I knew of "slight flu" symptoms this was not that ...... A hundred times worse.
I changed from superwoman to invalid in 2 days 11 years ago. I was strong and vital.
Aldara hits the strongest the hardest.

Shingles yes. In the last 12 months, shingles vasculitis in both breasts, pneumonia x2, sepsis x4, partial lung collapse, 4x dvts in left leg, haematoma in right leg the size of a watermelon... Hard to walk when one thigh is black... All the way around and hurting like crazy..... And twice the size of the other leg..... Must have looked hilarious!!
That is the last year for me. Then all the other things bursitis, pancreatic pain, Addison's disease, fibromyalgia etc etc.
I am in Calvery Hospital Canberra. Ward 5 East room 7.. I am known as Amanda De Silva. We haven't found a hospital in Sydney that will accept me as yet... So I don't know when I will be able to be transferred home. I would love to meet u. Give me a ring on the hospital phone. If I can give u a huge hug u will make my day. I am still too unstable to transfer so I feel certain I may still be here on Monday. But let's meet Roni, I will be delighted to hug u... A huge privilege.
Let's make one voice. Richard Beasley and Elaine Hollingsworth have been working so hard for the last 10 years to bring this to the world. Let's help them!! Let's do it. We r sick but we r not victims!!
It is a privilege to have this site to tell the stories. Can we get a letter from
Yr proff , michele? Maybe if u put it up here we can all use it to bring the truth to our Drs. The biggest thing is we r not believed by hospital drs. This is the reason I was taken within inches of my life. I have been to ED DeparMents 4 times in the last year with an infected porta cath. Sydney Adventist hospital, St Vincent's Hospital, And Calvery hospital in Canberra .... Who have saved my life... Canberra. I was turned away without treatment from these Sydney hospitals with septaceamia 40+ temperature, chest pain, pancreatic pain, vomitting screaming like a cornered animal. Labelled and unable to gain admission to ED in Sydney, it was by grace that my life has been saved. Canberra is a different state in NSW, so the discrimination against me didn't cross state lines. My husband found me semi conscious in our hotel room, in the bathroom. We had agreed that we would no longer seek assistance from hospitals that turned me away. My husband had to live thru hell trying to decide what to do. He broke our agreement and called an ambulance and they and my beautiful husband saved my life. I was almost dead.
Unfortunately, it isn't just the pain etc from aldara. It is discrimination and labeling by hospital Drs who don't understand what has happened to us.
This is like living in "one flew over the cuckoos nest". My heart breaks for all of u. I don't want anyone to have to go down this tunnel to hell where I have been. Sadly not even the butchers at 3m who continue to know the truth and hide behind greed. No one should ever experience what I have. No person should ever have to do what my husband has had to do for me. And my children. It doesn't stop with us ... We r tied to a whole community of people. This madness must be stopped now .... 2013. But we can't do it alone. We must work together.
I send my love and all the blessings in this universe to all that have been touched by this poison.
We've 2 now...... Let's put up our hands... Let us shout and roar. We just must
Hugs by the millions
Mandi De Silva.

Mandi all I can say is this is it. I am going going to do all I can help. Read on some US law site that it should NEVER be applied anywhere above the neck and one could sue the doctor who prescribed just for doing this. I was very fortunate that after the coughing started, after the 7th application that I immediately knew it was the aldara. I had only used one of those tiny sachets that was f... All. Just shows you how toxic the shit is. I stopped immediately when cough started, then I started doing the research and stumbled on Richards stuff which is so extensive how could anybody say this is not happening and still my skin specialist says no. My GP is with me and the Immunologist Prof says it's Aldara without a doubt and it's scary. Have been feeling a little better the last 3 days but it's is still their. The scary shit is that it keeps changing the symptom. One minute in the chest, then a cough then in the head, then body pain. Its bazare. ADARA IS ONE BIG FUCKING DRAMA AND THIS IS A FACT. NOBODY ELSE TOUCH IT. I do know that every country has a different drug law, spoke to a lawyer said it was early days to sue and that I should wait another 2 months or so. In the mean time will be doing lots of research. I also have to have a cytokine test which I will do in a week or three. Mandi my prayers are with you every day. Have any of you guys had your cytokine levels tested. Lots of hugs xx

Mandi this is the problem. It says flu like symptoms so with that information one would think a sniffle right, well wrong total misrepresentation on the contras. I read one site where it says anaphylactic shock. So you tell me what is everybody in such denial about. It's all there for everybody to see. What a shocker

Hi Michelle
I'm seeing my Doctor on Friday so I'll ask about a cytokine test - I've never heard of it before (& I've just changed doctors). When I told my dermatologist off a few months ago (& I've left him as well) he was in total denial. Couldn't see what I was angry about but was quite subdued and didn't look me in the eyes (odd after my having been going to him for over 10 years). I'll let you know how it goes. Best of luck ...

Lovely to meet Roni the other day.
Whenever we r suffering in some way, or some form, it is a relief to be able to share our difficulties with someone else who truly understands what we r experiencing. A small amount of true compassion, can make a huge difference if u r struggling and at the end of yr rope.
Thank u Roni... And for the apples... From her farm.... Totally delicious!
Hugs and love to each and everyone of u. Whether u r Experiencing a small pain in yr toe or finger, or if yr body is screaming as if in living hell.... The symptoms we r left with are real. Frightening, and extreme. The greatest blessing is to be believed, to have the company involved in this tragedy, decide to make recompense, simply because it is the right thing to do. Haven't we suffered enough at the hands of Aldara Cream? How much more HELL, until recognition?
Blessings, understanding and love to each and everyone of you... And all those that are still puzzled as to why they r so sick
