Aldara 5%

People who have actinic keratosis (a type of precancerous skin lesion), basal cell carcinoma (a type of skin cancer), or genital or perianal warts may receive a medicine called Aldara® (imiquimod cream).
 
There is only one strength of Aldara available (5%) and one form (0.25-gram, single-use packets, which contain 12.5 mg of imiquimod per packet). Each Aldara packet is for single-use only; any remaining cream in the packet should be discarded.
 
The cream is applied two to five times weekly. The specific dosing guidelines your healthcare provider recommends will depend on the reason Aldara is being used and whether you develop serious skin reactions.
