Aldara (imiquimod) is surely an immune response modifier. Aldara is utilized to take care of actinic keratosis (a condition caused by burning exposure) for the face and scalp.
Aldara (for that skin) is additionally used to help remedy a minor kind of skin cancer called superficial basal cell carcinoma, when surgery may not be a proper treatment.
Aldara also treats genital warts that appear on the outside in the body, but this medicine is not just a cure for genital warts. Imiquimod may be utilized in adults and children who are at the very least 12 years.
Aldara may also be used for purposes unpublished within this medication guide.
Use Aldara as directed through your doctor.
Store Aldara at room temperature far from moisture and heat. Do not freeze. Keep each packet unopened until you are ready to utilize it.
Get emergency medical help in case you have all of these signs of an allergic reaction to Aldara: hives; lack of breath; swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat. Wash off of the medicine and call your doctor at once when you have a life threatening skin reaction for example severe itching, burning, oozing, bleeding, or skin changes in which the medicine is applied.
Stop using Aldara and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as flu symptoms like fever, chills, body aches, tired feeling, swollen glands. When treating genital warts across the vagina, if you have severe swelling or urination problems, stop using Aldara and call a medical expert right away.
Do NOT use Aldara when you have these or other conditions:
sunburn or another skin problems;
a weak defense mechanisms or autoimmune disorder;
for those who have been recently treated for actinic keratosis or genital warts with surgery and other medications; or
when you have recently received a bone marrow transplant or cord blood transplant.
Avoid getting Aldara with your eyes, mouth, and nose, or on your own lips. Do not put the cream with your rectum, vagina, or urethra. If it does get into any of these areas, rinse with water. Do not use Aldara on sunburned, windburned, dry, chapped, irritated, or broken skin.
Avoid using other medications for the areas you treat with Aldara unless your physician lets you know to.
Avoid contact with sunlight or tanning beds. Aldara can make you sunburn quicker. Wear protective clothing and employ sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) when you might be outdoors.
Avoid having unprotected sex. Imiquimod is not really a cure for genital warts, and it will not drive back sexually transmitted diseases for example chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV, syphilis, and trichomoniasis. Talk with your doctor about safe solutions to prevent transmission during sex.
