There is a risk of getting sexually transmitted infections if you engage in sexual activities with multiple partners and without proper protection. Genital warts are common STIs caused by a particular strain of HPV. This infection can bring uncomfortable symptoms, like itchiness around the genitals, and a burning sensation on the affected skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Aldara Cream? 

Aldara Cream contains the active ingredient imiquimod. It is an immune response modifier, which helps the body’s immune system to increase its activities. Aldara is used to treat three different conditions:

  • Genital warts (condylomata acuminata) that commonly appear on the surface of men’s and women’s genitals, and around the anus.
  • A slow-growing form of skin cancer called superficial basal cell carcinoma, which is common among the middle-aged and elderly.
  • Actinic keratoses are rough skin areas, which are sometimes the same skin colour or may appear greyish, pink, red, or brown. It is common among people who have a lot of sun exposure in their lifetime. 

How does Aldara Cream work? 

When applied to genital warts, the active ingredient of Aldara locally acts on the immune system to prompt the release of cytokines. Cytokines are a group of small proteins that regulate immunity, inflammation, and hematopoiesis. 

During this process, imiquimod fights the human papillomavirus (HPV), which has caused genital warts.

Benefits of using Aldara

A certain strain of HPV is responsible for genital warts; it is transmitted through sexual interactions. When you get infected with genital warts, it can bring pain, discomfort, and itching. You can also spread it to other people, your sexual partners when left untreated. 

When you use Aldara, you can find relief from its uncomfortable symptoms and prevent the virus from multiplying and spreading to other people. You can continue to live your life comfortably and restore your overall health.

How to use Aldara 5 Cream? 

You should use this cream exactly as instructed by your doctor to avoid any medical complications and experience its maximum benefits. You should also read the enclosed patient information leaflet to familiarise the proper administration process.

Doctors will usually recommend using this product three (3) times a week, usually on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at night time or before bed. Before you apply the cream, make sure to wash your hands and the affected area with mild soap and water. Dry the affected area thoroughly. The pack does not contain an applicator, but each sachet is equal to one dose. Open a new sachet and put the cream on your fingertip, then apply it evenly on the clean and dry wart-affected area. 

You should leave the cream for about six (6) to ten (10) hours; do not wash the area during this time. After this time, you can repeat the cleaning process in the affected area. Also, do not cover the affected area with bandages or other dressings after application.

Do not forget to wash your hands before and after application to avoid putting it in sensitive areas in your body. You should also throw away the opened sachet after the application. 

Aldara Cream dosage 

Each Aldara sachet contains 250 mg cream, which contains 5mg of imiquimod at every 100mg of the cream. The content of each sachet can cover approximately 20 cm2 or 3 square inches of wart area.

As mentioned, your doctor will most likely recommend that you apply the cream three (3) times per week. You should continue using the cream as prescribed until your warts are completely gone. Most genital warts in women will disappear after eight (8) weeks and men in about 12 weeks; however, some genital warts will clear within four (4) weeks of using Aldara cream. You should not use this medication for more than 16 weeks. 

If you forget to apply Aldara, do so as soon as you remember, but you should not apply it more than once in one day. If you apply more than you should or in an unaffected area, you should wash it immediately with soap and water. If there is accidental ingestion of the cream, contact your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical help.

Want To Know More About Aldara Cream?

Again, you should consult your doctor before using this cream. You should inform your doctor about any existing medical condition or medication that you’re currently taking. Inform your doctor if you have or have had any of the following:

  • Used Aldara cream or other similar preparations on previous episodes of infection
  • Immune system problems
  • The affected area is still healing from previous medication or surgical procedure
  • An abnormal blood count
  • Positive for HIV

While on Aldara wart treatment, AVOID doing the following:

  • Applying the cream in the eyes, lips, and nostrils
  • Applying the cream internally
  • Using more cream than prescribed
  • Covering the treated area with bandages or other dressings
  • Using this treatment for more than one course if you have immune system problems

Men using this treatment due to warts under the foreskin should pull the foreskin back and wash the affected area underneath it every day. If not washed, the skin may tighten, swell, or wear away the skin. If these signs occur, stop using the cream immediately and notify your doctor.

People with open sores should only use this cream after the sores have completely healed. On the other hand, when treating internal genital warts, the cream should not be applied in the urethra, vagina, cervix, or anywhere inside the anus. 

Like any medication, Aldara can also cause side effects, although not everyone may experience them. You can look for online Aldara Cream reviews to determine what other users of this product experienced while on treatment.

  • Flakiness and swelling
  • Hardening under the skin
  • Small open sores
  • Crust formation during healing
  • Small bubbles under the skin
  • Itching
  • A burning sensation
  • Pain in the application area

These skin reactions can be mild and may disappear after two (2) weeks post-treatment.

  • Headache
  • Fevers and flu-like symptoms, and joint and muscle pains (although uncommon)
  • Womb prolapse
  • Pain during intercourse for women
  • Erection difficulties for men
