Genital warts, actinic keratosis and skin cancer Imiquimod Aldara Topical Cream

Uses
Aldara Topical Cream (Imiquimod) treats actinic keratosis, genital warts and superficial basal cell carcinoma (a type of skin cancer) by stimulating an immune system response. It is recommended for use in immunocompetent patients (meaning that the immune system is functioning properly).

Forms of actinic keratosis that are treated include nonhypertrophic and nonhyperkeratotic AK that affects the scalp. In cases of primary superficial basal cell carcinoma affecting adults, diagnosis of the condition by means of a biopsy is usually needed by the doctor. Other skin cancers which patients have used it for include malignant melanomas and squamous cell carcinoma.

It is also widely used as a topical treatment for genital warts (however it will not cure the virus that causes these warts to appear), condyloma acuminate and perianal warts. The active ingredient in this cream is a nucleoside analogue and it is often referred to as a toll-like receptor-7 agonist. It enhances the response of the immune system by stimulating the cells required to fight the infection or abnormal skin cells.

Dosage and Administration
Patients should note that the area requiring treatment with Aldara Topical Cream (Imiquimod) needs to be fully washed using a mild soap and water before application. It must be fully dry before you rub the cream on. Doctors normally instruct patients to apply it before going to sleep and to ensure that it stays on the skin for 8 hours. Do not shower or wash during this period, however after the treatment period is over, the treated area may be washed again with water and soap. Your doctor will tell you how often to apply it as well as the duration of treatment.
