What is Aldara?
Aldara, with the active ingredient Imiquimod, is a cream that combats the growth and distribution process of genital warts, among others. The cream is intended for external application only.
The areas where Aldara 5% should be applied are:
- Outer genital warts
- Small skin tumours
Treatment of genital warts
For the treatment of genital warts, the cream is applied externally. The active ingredient Imiquimod interferes with the growth of warts and stops it from spreading to other areas. After a few days or weeks, in some cases, warts will be 100% eliminated.
How does Aldara work?
The main active ingredient, Imiquimod, is an immune modulator that does not destroy viruses or cancer cells but activates the skin's immune system to fight genital warts. The substance also provokes an inflammatory reaction by binding to the surface molecule of the immune system cells TLR7, adjusting uncontrolled growth and regulating endogenous cells on the skin. In contrast with other invasive procedures, in which genital warts are surgically removed, cut or frozen; Imiquimod does not damage the skin, because it is applied externally, on the skin.
How to apply the cream
Massage the cream carefully, until it is absorbed by the skin. Repeat the process three times a week, at intervals of two-three days. After six-ten hours, remove any remaining cream from the affected area, with water and a towel. Wash your hands thoroughly after using the cream!
- Best time to apply the cream: at bedtime.
- Duration of application: maximum of 16 weeks
