Drug name: Aldara Cream
Generic name: Imiquimod topical

Aldara is an immune response modifier medication, and it contains the active ingredient imiquimod. The primary use of Aldara cream is for actinic keratosis on the face and scalp, which is a condition caused by too much exposure to the sun’s rays. It is also used to treat superficial basal cell carcinoma, which is a mild form of skin cancer and genital warts on the outside of the body. Aldara does not cure genital warts but just relieves the symptoms. Aldara is a topical drug meaning that it is for external use on the skin only and should not be ingested. We currently have brand Aldara Cream 5% (12 dose/sachet) and generic Imiquimod (3 dose/sachet) topical available in stock. Call us at 1-866-920-3784 (toll-free) or email us.
