What is Aldara Cream For
Aldara Cream’s active ingredient is imiquimod, a topical cream agent that belongs to the immune response modifiers IRMs. It stimulates the body’s defense mechanism by binding to the immune cells in the skin to release a natural defense chemical called cytokines; it helps fight the viral infection and prevent the virus from multiplying in cells. This topical cream is used to treat and decrease complications of the conditions listed below:
- Aldara Cream for genital warts – are warts under the foreskin, scrotum, around or in the vagina, cervix, rectum, or between vagina and rectum caused by HPV human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted disease.
- Aldara Cream for actinic keratosis – is rough, scaly patches on the skin, usually in the lips, ears, forearms, scalp, neck, or back of the hands, that develop due to years of exposure to the sun. It is also called solar keratosis; left untreated, it may lead to skin cancer called squamous cell carcinoma.
- Aldara Cream for basal cell carcinoma – is a slightly transparent bump in the skin that can sometimes be in other forms; it is a skin cancer found in areas exposed to the sun (head and neck).
This cream works on these conditions by targeting the immune system to fight these abnormal skin growths.
