What Aldara is used for

Aldara is used to treat solar keratosis
(SK) on the face and scalp,
superficial basal cell carcinoma
(sBCC), and genital/perianal warts.

• Solar keratoses are thickened,
scaly patches of skin caused by
too much sun exposure. Solar
keratosis is also known as actinic
keratosis.

• Basal cell carcinoma is a type of
skin cancer.

• External genital/perianal warts
(condyloma acuminata) are warts
that appear on the surface of the
penis or vulva (external female
sexual organ) and around the
anus.

Aldara is not recommended for use in
patients under the age of 18 years as
there have been no studies of its
effects in this age group.
Your doctor may prescribe Aldara
for another purpose. If you are not
sure why you are using this medicine
ask your doctor.

When you must not use Aldara

Do not use Aldara:

• if you are allergic to imiquimod
or to any of the ingredients
listed under “Product
Description”

• on skin where there are open
sores or wounds. Do not start
using Aldara until after the
area has healed.

• on warts inside the vagina or
inside the anus or inside the
urethra (where you pass urine).
The use of Aldara cream on
these areas has not been
studied.

• on areas that are sunburnt
• if the packaging is torn, or
shows signs of tampering.

• after the “use by” date shown
on the box or sachet or after 4
weeks from first opening the

Dosage

Aldara is used to treat several skin
conditions. Your doctor will tell you
where to apply Aldara cream, how
often and for how long to apply it for
your condition. Aldara should be
applied just before bedtime and left
on the skin for 6-10 hours. Sufficient
cream should be applied to cover the
treatment area. Talk to your doctor if
your condition re-appears after
treatment.
