Aldara is a topical cream used to treat genital warts caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). It is licensed to treat external genital and anal warts in both men and women.
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 cells 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 stimulate the production of cytokines to inhibit the cells 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 wart breaks down and the warts are eradicated from the surface of the skin.
Aldara contains a 5% formulation of Imiquimod and is available in sachets.
To treat genital warts, apply Aldara cream 3 times a week.
Apply the treatment on Monday, Wednesday and Friday before going to bed.
Wash your hands and the affected area with soap and water. Ensure the area is thoroughly dried before applying the treatment.
Open a sachet and squeeze some cream onto the tip of your finger.
Apply a thin layer of the cream to the wart and gently rub it in until the cream is fully absorbed by the skin.
Avoid showering or bathing until 10 hours have elapsed since your last application.
After 6 to 10 hours have elapsed, you should wash the affected area with soap and warm water.
All medication carries the potential risk of side effects. Not everyone will experience side effects associated with the medication they are taking. Nevertheless, it is important to educate yourself on the possible side effects your medication could cause and what to do in the event of experiencing an adverse reaction to a prescribed treatment. Always read the patient information leaflet before starting your course of treatment.
Common side effects associated with Aldara can include:
If you experience severe pain after applying the cream to the skin, or find it difficult to pass urine after applying the treatment, seek immediate medical attention.
Aldara cream should not be used for internal warts inside the urethra, vagina, cervix or rectum.
While being treated for genital warts, you should abstain from sex until your symptoms have cleared.
Always follow the instructions of the doctor and do not exceed the recommended dose of treatment. Do not stop treatment without first consulting a doctor to ensure it is safe for you to do so.
