Aldara FAQs

What benefits can I expect when I buy Aldara cream?

Aldara has been proven as an effective external treatment for genital warts. It's also convenient to use, and only requires treatment three times a week. If Aldara is used correctly, it can make any external genital warts symptoms disappear within 16 weeks.

How does Aldara wart cream work?

Although the HPV responsible for genital warts can't be cured, the condition can be controlled effectively with treatments like Aldara. The active ingredient in Aldara wart cream, imiquimod, works as an immune response modifier (IRM), and stimulates your immune system's natural defences. It does this because it is able to bind to the immune cells around the part where the wart is located, and stimulates them to release natural chemicals known as cytokines. Cytokines prevent the HPV virus from multiplying, making it easier for your natural defences to fight the virus, eventually causing the warts to disappear.

Who can take it?

Most men and women can safely buy Aldara online from euroClinix for the treatment of genital warts, however it's mainly recommended for warts that are appearing externally on the penis or vagina or on and around the anus. You should speak to your doctor for advice on treatment of warts inside the anus, urinary tract or vagina, especially if this is causing you discomfort.

Who cannot take it?

Some people should take care when using this cream, as it may cause side effects or it may not work like you need it to. These people may include those who have recently had an organ transplant, those with a weakened immune system, uncircumcised men with warts under their foreskin and those with inflammatory skin conditions.

Also avoid using Aldara if you are allergic to its active ingredient or to treat genital warts inside the genitals or anus.

How do you use Aldara cream?

Aldara works best if it's used three times a week on clean, dry skin. Ideally you should try and apply it before you fall asleep, because application requires you to wash it off after six to ten hours with mild soap and water. Always wash your hands before and after applying Aldara wart cream. To avoid skin irritation, you should only apply the cream in a thin layer. You shouldn't use Aldara for more than 16 weeks, and please avoid using it on broken or irritated skin.

Are there any side effects I need to be aware of?

Although the cream is applied topically, it can still cause side effects, but the most common side effects are normally mild and include mild skin irritation, flu-like symptoms, stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, headaches, back ache, muscle pain, nausea and diarrhoea. If these are bothersome and persistent, you should speak to your doctor about trying an alternative wart cream.

More serious side effects include allergic reactions, chest pain, vaginal pain, blistering, bleeding, pain at the application site or severe irritation. These are extremely rare side effects of this treatment, but they should be reported immediately if you do experience any of them.
