What is Aldara?

Aldara is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by 3M Pharmaceuticals. Aldara cream is classed as an immune response modifier used to treat:

  • Actinic keratosis (a condition caused by too much sun exposure) on the face and scalp in immunocompetent adults
  • Biopsy-confirmed, primary superficial basal cell carcinoma (sBCC), a type of skin cancer in immunocompetent adults, when surgery would not be appropriate
  • External genital warts and perianal warts/condyloma acuminata in patients 12 years of age or older

What doses of Aldara are available?

Aldara is available as a cream, in the following doses: 5%.

For Actinic keratosis apply twice a week to the affected area for 16 weeks. Apply to the treatment area in a thin layer, and rub in until it disappears. Use it before going to bed, leaving it on for 8 hours. Wash off with water and mild soap in the morning. For superficial basal cell carcinoma apply the cream 5 times per week for 6 weeks. For genital warts apply the cream 3 times per week for no longer than 16 weeks. Do not cover the treated skin area with any type of bandaging, and avoid nylon underwear. You may wear cotton gauze or underwear over the treated area.

Using too much Aldara cream, or using it for too long can increase your risk of severe skin reactions. Do not use Aldara cream to treat any skin condition that has not been checked by a doctor. Avoid exposure to sunlight, sunlamps, or tanning beds. Aldara can make your skin sunburn more easily. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen when you are going outdoors.

Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
