What is Aldara Cream used for?

Aldara cream is used to treat genital warts caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Aldara is licensed to treat genital warts in both men and women.

Following a quick online consultation, you can get a private prescription for Aldara online from our UK prescription service.

We offer a fast, next-day delivery service to ensure you get your treatment as soon as possible. All items are packaged in discreet packaging to maintain your privacy.

How does HPV cause genital warts?

HPV infects a host cell within the skin and causes it to divide, making a second identical cell which also contains the virus. These infected cells continue to divide and create a wart. Other infected cells nearby can maintain the wart by replacing dead cells with copies of themselves.

While other treatments inhibit the cell's ability to divide, providing the immune system with a better chance of fighting the virus, the active ingredient in Aldara (Imiquimod) binds to skin cells and stimulates the production of cytokines to inhibit the cell's ability to reproduce.

When an infected cell dies, it is not replaced with another infected cell. Instead, a healthy cell takes its place. Over time, the tissue of the warts breaks down, and they are eradicated from the surface of the skin.

What formulations are available?

Aldara contains a 5% formulation of Imiquimod and is available in sachets.

To get Aldara online, simply complete our short questionnaire, and we'll do the rest.

We also offer a more affordable generic treatment in the form of Imiquimod 5% cream. The generic treatment works in the same way as Aldara.

One of our online doctors can determine which formulation is most suitable for you.

How to use Aldara Cream?

To treat genital warts, apply Aldara cream 3 times a week for approximately 16 weeks.

Apply Aldara cream on Monday, Wednesday and Friday before going to bed.

  1. Wash your hands and the affected area with soap and water before applying Aldara cream. Ensure the area is thoroughly dried before applying Aldara.
  2. Open a sachet and squeeze some cream onto the tip of your finger.
  3. Apply a thin layer of the cream to the wart and gently rub it in until the cream is fully absorbed by the skin.
  4. Wash your hands after applying Aldara cream to the affected area.
  5. After 6 to 10 hours, you should wash the affected area with soap and warm water.

Avoid showering or bathing until 10 hours have passed since your last application.

Do not re-use a sachet of Aldara once opened.

Empty sachets can be discarded in the bin. Make sure that discarded sachets cannot be reached by children or pets.

Do not use Aldara cream for warts in internal areas like the urethra, vagina, cervix or rectum. Aldara cream is for external use only.

While being treated for genital warts, you should abstain from sex until your symptoms have cleared up completely.

Aldara side effects and cautions

Before you start using Aldara, it's important to be aware of the sides effects and other precautions associated with Aldara cream.

All medications carry the risk of side effects. Not everyone will experience side effects associated with the medicine they are taking.

Do not use Aldara cream if you are allergic to imiquimod or any of its ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your treatment.

If you experience an allergic reaction after applying Aldara 5% cream, stop using the cream and seek emergency medical attention by going straight to your nearest accident and emergency department.

Other safety information

Always read the patient information leaflet supplied with your medicine before you start using Aldara.

During your online consultation, inform our online prescribers of all other medicines you are currently taking. This includes medicines prescribed by your doctor or bought over the counter, as well as health and herbal supplements.

Do not use Aldara cream past the expiry date printed on the packaging. The date refers to the last day of the specified month.

Never share your medicine with anybody else, even if they are experiencing the same symptoms or have been diagnosed with the same condition as you.
