What is Aldara and what is it used for?

Aldara is a topical cream typically used to treat certain types of skin growths – most commonly, genital warts. Aldara works as an immune response modifier, and it works by helping to stimulate the body’s natural defences to fight these abnormal skin growths.

Aldara cream is simple to apply and can be used for up to 16 weeks. It is effective for dealing with persistent cases of genital warts.

As well as being used against genital warts, Aldara may also be used to remove warts around the anus. The cream may also possibly be used to treat superficial basal cell carcinoma, which is a slow-growing form of skin cancer. It may also be used to treat actinic keratosis - rough areas of skin found on people who have been exposed to a lot of sunshine over the course of their lifetime.

How does Aldara cream work?

Aldara cream contains an ingredient called imiquimod. When applied to a patient, this ingredient stimulates the body’s immune system. It achieves this by attaching to cells in the skin and facilitating the release of certain proteins called cytokines.

The proteins produced with the help of imiquimod will fight off viral cells responsible for the presence of genital warts by stopping their growth pattern and causing them to perish. While it doesn’t specifically cure the virus that caused the warts, it will heal the areas of the skin affected.

Precautions with Aldara

This product may include inactive ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction or health issues. You should check what ingredients are included in this cream and avoid using it if you know you are allergic to any of them. Remember also that Aldara cream is only meant to be used by adults.

You should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using Aldara if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have used Aldara cream or similar treatments before
  • You have had surgical or drug treatment on the area of the skin you wish to apply Aldara cream on
  • You have an abnormal blood count
  • You are taking or have recently taken any other medicines

Aldara can make you more sensitive to the sun, so limit your exposure and avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. If you get sunburned or develop redness or blisters, contact your doctor straight away.

During the treatment of genital or anal warts, avoid all sexual contact while the cream is on the skin. Aldara can weaken condoms, diaphragms and dental dams, so they may not be as effective at preventing the spread of STIs and pregnancy.

Aldara should only be used when absolutely necessary if pregnant or breastfeeding – discuss the risks with your doctor before using this medication.

How to use Aldara

The frequency and duration of application differs for each condition which Aldara cream can treat.

External genital warts in adults:

Aldara cream should be applied three times per week at paced out intervals, such as Monday, Wednesday and Friday, prior to normal sleeping hours. The cream needs to stay on the skin between 6 to 10 hours. The application of the cream should continue until the visible genital or perianal warts have cleared, or for a maximum of 16 weeks per episode of warts.

Superficial basal cell carcinoma in adults:

Aldara cream should be applied for 6 weeks, 5 times per week prior to regular sleeping hours, and left on the skin for around 8 hours.

Actinic keratosis in adults

Treatment for this condition should be initiated and monitored by a registered physician. Aldara cream should be applied 3 times per week for four weeks, prior to regular sleeping hours, and left on the skin for around 8 hours.

Possible side effects of Aldara

Like with all medicines, it is possible that Aldara cream can cause side effects but not all patients experience them. The most commonly reported side effects include the following:

  • Redness
  • Wearing away of the skin
  • Hardening under the skin
  • Small open sores
  • A crust that forms during healing
  • Itching
  • A burning sensation
  • Pain in areas where Aldara cream has been applied

Most of the skin reactions listed here are mild and the skin will usually return to normal within about 2 weeks after you stop treatment.

Other side effects are possible but are also much less common. Some of the less common side effects can be troubling though. If after using Aldara cream you feel unwell or notice any other alarming side effects, then stop using this medication and contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately for advice.
