Main Use Active Ingredient Marketed Name
Genital warts, superficial basal cell carcinoma and genital warts Imiquimod Aldara 5% Cream

Uses
Aldara 5% Cream (Imiquimod) is indicated for the treatment of genital warts, skin cancer and actinic keratoses. Types of skin cancer for which it has been used include Bowen's disease, basal cell carcinoma and certain types of malignant melanomas. Clinical trials have even been conducted to test its effects in treating molluscum contagiousum.

The primary ingredient in this topical skin cream is a type of immune response modifier. It works by triggering the body's natural defences, and causing the cells in the skin to release cytokines (chemicals which are important for the immune system). When used for genital warts, it triggers an immune system response that attacks the virus responsible for the warts, which helps the warts to heal. It treats superficial skin cancers and actinic keratosis by attacking the abnormal cells.

Dosage and Administration
Visit your doctor so that your skin condition can be diagnosed, and instructions on how and when to apply Aldara 5% Cream (Imiquimod) will also be given to you. Patients are sometimes told to apply the cream to the area that is in need of treatment twice per week just before going to bed. Doctors generally state that application of more than 1 sachet must be avoided. Treatment may continue for 16 weeks, however, the exact duration of treatment will be determined by your doctor, and will usually be individualised.

It is also important to note that the application procedure, as well as frequency of application and duration of treatment may be different for genital warts than it is for actinic keratoses or basal cell carcinomas, and for this reason it is essential that the instructions given by your doctor are strictly followed.

Side effects
Topical use of Aldara 5% Cream (Imiquimod) to treat warts, superficial skin cancers, keratoses or other conditions may cause some side effects, such as:

  • Thick skin
  • Cold symptoms
  • Discoloured skin
  • Scabs on the skin
  • A burning or itchy sensation affecting the area of application

Inform your doctor of any topical or other reactions that occur. You should note that if severe pain or any other serious side effects occur, it will be necessary for you to present yourself at a hospital or doctor's surgery for immediate medical treatment.

Precautions
Before you use this cream, it is worth noting that it is possible for changes in the colour of skin to occur. In some cases, this discolouration may not disappear even after ceasing treatment. Inform your doctor of any changes to the colour of your skin that occur.

Once you have applied the cream, do not take a shower or bath until the cream needs to be washed off (your doctor will tell you how long you need to leave the cream on your skin for). You must also remember to wash off the cream when necessary, as failure to do so may cause discomfort of the skin.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Aldara 5% Cream (Imiquimod) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
