Aldara is a topical cream containing the active ingredient imiquimod and can be medically referred to as an immune response modifier. This medication may be used for three different conditions including the sexually transmitted infection (STI) genital warts, and although warts are incurable, you can use this topical cream to manage them effectively. Aldara has been clinically proven to be an effective external treatment for the STI, not only curing the warts completely in a swift fashion, but to alleviate any discomfort they are causing.
It's convenient to use, and only requires treatment periodically, three times a week. If this medication is used correctly, it can make any external genital warts symptoms disappear within 16 weeks.
Your doctor may also prescribe Aldara cream for the treatment of:
Although the human papilloma virus (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) to encourage your immune system's natural defences.
It does this because it is able to bind to the immune cells around the area 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.
Using Aldara cream is simple and as the medication isn't ingested, the risk of side effects is particularly low. The patient leaflet is attached at the bottom of this page for detailed guidelines on how to apply Aldara cream.
Aldara cream contains 5% of the active ingredient imiquimod in each sachet. This is the equivalent of 250mg in 12.5mg of Aldara. This medication has been clinically tested to be highly effective when used correctly in this dose, and alternative dosages are available from your GP or doctor if this recommended dosage is either ineffective or prompts mild to severe side effects over a prolonged amount of time.
Most men and women can buy Aldara online from euroClinix for the treatment of genital warts. It is 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, or if you're looking to use Aldara cream for another condition.
Whilst Aldara is highly tolerable with the vast majority of people not experiencing side effects at all, there are some precautions to bear in mind.
This includes men and women 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 this medication if you are allergic to its active ingredient or to treat genital warts inside the genitals or anus.
Although the cream is applied topically, it can still cause side effects for a small percentage of men and women, 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.
