This treatment is prescribed for various skin conditions, including precancerous growths known as actinic keratoses, superficial basal cell carcinoma (a type of skin cancer), and genital or anal warts. Addressing these conditions proactively can help reduce potential complications. Imiquimod, categorized as an immune response modifier, is thought to stimulate the immune system to combat these irregular skin growths. Please note that this product is not suitable for children under 12 years of age unless explicitly recommended by your medical professional.

Additional information


Before using Aldara Cream, carefully read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist. If you have any questions, seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist.
Apply this medication exclusively to the skin. Administer it to the affected area(s) as instructed by your doctor, usually before bedtime. For single-use packets, use a new one each time. If using the pump, follow the priming instructions before first use.
Before application, cleanse your hands and the treatment area with mild soap and water. Dry thoroughly. Gently apply a thin layer of the medication to the affected area(s) as directed, then massage it in. After each application, cleanse your hands using soap and water. Avoid covering the treated area with bandages or waterproof materials; instead, opt for cotton gauze or underwear if treating the genital area. Leave the cream on overnight, typically around 8 hours for actinic keratoses or basal cell carcinoma, and 6 to 10 hours for warts. Refrain from showering or bathing during this time. In the morning, cleanse the treated area with soap and water to remove the cream. Do not exceed the prescribed duration of application.
The dosage and treatment duration hinge on your medical condition and response. For actinic keratoses, apply twice a week for 16 weeks. For superficial basal cell carcinoma, apply 5 times a week for 6 weeks. For warts, apply 3 times a week for up to 16 weeks. Consistent use maximizes benefits. To remember, consider marking your calendar.
Avoid application in the eyes, nose, mouth, rectum, or vagina. Flush with water if contact occurs. Notify your doctor immediately if irritation arises.
Should your condition persist or worsen, or if new growths appear during treatment, inform your doctor.

Side Effects

Side Effects
-Possible reactions in the treatment area encompass redness, swelling, itching, burning, pain/tenderness, skin thickening/hardening, peeling/flaking/scabbing/crusting, or release of clear fluid. Changes in skin color might also arise and could be enduring. If these effects persist or worsen, inform your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
For severe skin reactions (bleeding, ulceration, blistering), discontinuation of imiquimod may be necessary for skin healing. Adhere to your doctor's guidance.
Flu-like symptoms (fever, fatigue, muscle aches), nasal congestion, cough, diarrhea, nausea, and back pain are additional possibilities. Notify your doctor or pharmacist if these effects endure or worsen.
Remember, your doctor prescribed this medication as they judged the benefits outweigh the potential risks. Most users experience minimal side effects.
Immediately report serious side effects to your doctor, including swollen lymph nodes, new or unusual skin growths, chest pain, and urination difficulties.
Though rare, a severe allergic reaction is possible. Seek immediate medical help if you experience symptoms like rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, or breathing difficulties.
