Product Description

Aldara is a topical imiquimod cream used to treat certain skin conditions caused by excessive exposure to the sun.

 

Drug Information

 

Aldara is a skin cream belonging to class of drugs called imiquimods. Imiquimods are known as immune response modifiers. They can treat certain types of growth on the skin caused by too much sun exposure that may indicate an elevated risk for skin cancer.

 

The skin conditions Aldara treats are known as actinic keratoses, which are scaly and flat growths on the face and scalp resulting from exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun. Aldara is also used to treat superficial basal cell carcinoma, a minor form of skin cancer for which surgery may not be suitable. Aldara is also sometimes used to treat genital or anal warts. Aldara can help reduce the appearance of warts, but will not cure them.

 

The imiquimod drugs in Aldara work by stimulating the immune system to attack the skin growths. Aldara is suitable for patients 12 years or older. The skin cream is not recommended for use in children under 12 years.

 

Application

 

A doctor will prescribe how and when to use Aldara cream properly without causing further harm. When applying the cream, follow the doctor’s instructions exactly as prescribed. Detailed information regarding applying Aldara is available in the patient information leaflet provided with the package.

 

Aldara is usually prescribed to be applied 2 to 3 times per week over the course of 16 weeks. Using Aldara for longer than prescribed, or applying more per day than instructed, can lead to severe adverse reactions.

 

When using Aldara, patients should meet doctors regularly for skin checkups. A doctor will be able to identify a severe skin reaction right away.

 

Do not use Aldara for skin conditions not diagnosed by a doctor. Use only a single tube of Aldara for the condition and discard it once the treatment is complete. Do not share Aldara with others, even if they have the same medical condition.
