How does Aldara cream work?
Aldara contains imiquimod, being the active ingredient it acts by reviving the body’s natural defense mechanisms. There are immune cells present in skin, they release protective chemicals known as cytokines when imiquimod binds to them. Our immune system fights viral infections with the help of Cytokines. It can stop the virus in the cells from multiplying.
A small layer of the cream is applied to the area on the skin where the infection is visible 3-4 times per week, and then washed off 6-10 hours later. Continuing to apply Aldara until there is no sign of warts. You shouldn’t use the cream for longer then 4 months without speaking to our doctor.
How do I take Aldara?
When treating genital warts Aldara cream is applied on the infected area. If the area is around the vagina be careful not to apply the cream on more sensitive areas of the vaginal tissue as this may cause swelling or irration and may even cause painful urination. Avoid sexual intercourse while the cream is on your skin.
- Mild skin irritation
- Vaginal itching
- Changes in skin color around the treated skin
