You will be warned of the side effects of this cream, red sores not necessarily at the point of contact, weeping and occasional bleeding. It will get worse over around 4 weeks then the last 1 or 2 weeks it'll start to clear and dry out. Slight pain, itching and wanting to scratch can be ignored over time. Bandages can be worn over the wound if going out to avoid contact with clothes. Mine was on my neck. Towel or old pillow case assisted at night. Keep it clean and it will get better.

Profile

Aldara (imiquimod) is an immune response modifier. Aldara is used to treat actinic keratosis (a condition caused by too much sun exposure) on the face and scalp. Aldara (for the skin) is also used to treat a minor form of skin cancer called superficial basal cell carcinoma, when surgery would not be an appropriate treatment. Aldara also treats genital warts that appear on the outside of the body, but this medicine is not a cure for genital warts. Imiquimod may be used in adults and children who are at least 12 years.
