What is Aldara?

Aldara is a topical cream applied to external genital warts and contains the active ingredient imiquimod. Whilst its primary use to treat genital warts, you can also buy Aldara to treat certain skin conditions (non-hyperkeratotic and non-hypertrophic actinic keratoses) and sun damage. At this time, we only prescribe Aldara to treat genital warts.


Classed as an immune response modifier, Aldara helps the body's natural defences combat the symptoms of the human papilloma virus (HPV), known more commonly as warts, working as a dual treatment to alleviate uncomfortable or painful symptoms and clearing warts completely. Although Aldara can clear bouts of warts, it's important to remember that viral STIs are incurable, and warts may appear again in the future.

Short facts about Aldara
How to use

Aldara cream comes in easy to use sachets to be applied of the affected area. It should be applied three times a week for up to 16 weeks to external warts which should clear the appearance and associated symptoms.

How it works

Aldara is a immunomodulator medication, meaning it aids your natural defences to combat the virus and the appearance of the genital warts directly.


Aldara is available to buy at OnlineClinic as a 5% cream of 250mg per sachet, 100mg of which is the active ingredient imiquimod.

Side effects

Mild side effects are rare, but can include skin irritation, flu-like symptoms, headaches, backache and muscle pain or nausea.

How does Aldara work?

These types of medication are known as immunomodulators, as they work directly with your immune system by stimulating the body's natural defences, stopping the virus from spreading further and clearing up symptoms completely.

Containing the active ingredient imiquimod, when thinly applied Aldara is able to attach itself to immune cells in the area to encourage the chemical defence system, which then causes the release of cytokines that attack the HPV cells directly. If the HPV cells are continuously under attack by the body's immune cells, it'll be unable to form more infected cells, thus preventing the spread, as well as combatting existing warts.

How to use Aldara

Being a topical cream, Aldara is really simple to use with a small chance of side effects, as it is not ingested.

  • Use three times a week periodically straight onto the affected area (Tuesday, Friday and Sunday as one example)
  • Add less initially and rub in before using a little more if needed
  • Optimum time to apply is before bed so the cream isn't removed through movement
  • The cream should remain on the skin for at least 6 hours and up to 10 hours
  • Wash the cream off in the morning with warm water (mild soap is optional)
  • Do not use the cream on areas where the skin is broken or wounded
  • Aldara can be used for up to 16 weeks for each bouts. If the warts haven't cleared by then, contact your doctor for further advice.

Using Aldara as soon as possible will help to quicken the recovery period, so if you find there are patterns in bouts, you can stock up in advance (always check the expiry date before use). For further information, you can read the patient leaflet at the right of the page. Always read instructions carefully before use.


Each sachet of 5% Aldara contains 250mg of cream (usually a white colour, occasionally pale yellow). 100mg of this 250mg is the active ingredient imiquimod. At OnlineClinic, you can buy 12 sachets of Aldara 5% cream per pack.

Side effects and precautions

Side effects with Aldara are unlikely, but they do occur. Normally they are mild and could include:

  • skin irritation, flu-like symptoms, stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, headaches, backache and muscle pain or nausea.

The most common out of all of these is skin irritation with pain and burning noted.

Please ensure that you apply the cream straight to the wart only, as the dosage can cause a reaction on normal skin. If you experience anything more extreme or if these side effects become persistent, you should seek medical help straight away.

For any severe side effects, or signs of an allergic reaction, stop taking the medication immediately and consult your doctor.

There are also some precautions to take before you decide to buy Aldara for a minority of users. These include the following:

  • Avoid harsh sunlight, sunlamps and tanning beds
  • Avoid sex until the symptoms have completely cleared
  • Wash all creams off in the morning and before having sex
  • Read condom instructions thoroughly, as the cream may weaken latex
  • Note that genital warts are incurable. All genital warts treatment works by curing the most recent bouts, not the virus altogether.

Note: Decisions about treatment are for both the prescriber and the person to jointly consider during the consultation. However, the final decision will always be the prescriber’s.
