  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I started taking Zyclara as a topical ointment on my back to treat Basil Cell Carcinoma Skin Cancer. It worked in removing the cancer. However, the process has been most difficult. It has been 8 months since I started the 6 week process, and I still am losing my hair, have severe diarhea, and the doctors can not find anything wrong with me. They found Candida in the beginning and treated that, they found some small ulcers in my small intestin. I have been cleared of Crohns, Celiac disease, just about everything you could think of. I am still fighting an uphill battle to stop the diarhea, hair loss, and stomach cramping. IBS is another thing I was diagnosed with after the candida cleared.

    You may have seen from my other posts that I am a lawyer in Ontario, Canada who has been speaking with a number of people who have suffered side-effects from Aldara, so I can get the word out through the media about this medication.

    Your symptoms sound just terrible. I may not be able to help you if you are not in Canada somewhere, but I may be able to find a lawyer for you in your area if you are interested in contacting me: aoakley@oakleylegal.com
