Genital warts are the visible symptoms of the human papilloma virus (HPV), which is typically contracted through sexual activity. This virus manifests itself in outbreaks of small fleshy warts in the genital area of both men and women. The virus lays dormant for long periods of time before an outbreak occurs. Whilst there is no cure for the virus itself, the visible symptoms are very treatable, with prescription treatments offering an effective and safe way of clearing genital wart outbreaks.
The active ingredient in Aldara is a medicine called imiquimod, which can be used to effectively treat genital warts. It acts as an immune response modifier, which means that it stimulates the body's natural defence mechanisms. When Aldara is applied directly onto the warts, it makes the skin cells produce what are known as cytokines, which prevent the virus from multiplying and make it easier for the body to fight the infection and clear the outbreak altogether.
Whilst there is no cure for the virus itself, there are effective treatments to help clear genital warts quickly and painlessly. Aldara can help clear outbreaks of warts in as little as 16 weeks and prevent any infection occurring. Aldara is a topical treatment that is applied directly on to the warts. As it is applied externally, there is a reduced risk of side effects from using this treatment. Some over the counter and herbal wart treatments can have a negative impact on the skin, causing skin irritation on the area where it has been applied. The active ingredient in Aldara is imiquimod, which helps boost the body’s immune system in order to deal with the outbreak. This method should keep the risk of skin irritation and side effects to a minimum.
Aldara is a topical treatment that is widely used and well tolerated. It should only be used by adults over the age of 18 and is not suitable for use on children. This medication is for external use only and should not be used to treat genital warts inside the vagina or anus. If you have warts located in these places, you should consult with your doctor to establish the correct treatment option for you. You should also speak to your doctor before starting this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
There are people who may not be suitable to use Aldara based on either their medical history or medications that they are currently taking. You may not be suitable for this treatment if you have a reduced immune system of if you have had an organ transplant, If either of these apply to you, please consult with your doctor in order to find the right treatment option for you. When you buy Aldara online at 121doc, you will be required to complete an online medical consultation that our doctors will use to determine your suitability for this medication. Please ensure that you include as much information as possible about your medical history and any medications that you are currently taking.
This cream should be applied directly on to the warts three times per week in a thin layer. As the cream will need to be washed off with soap and water after six to ten hours, the best time to apply this treatment is before bed. You should continue applying Aldara three times per week until the warts have cleared, which should take no longer than 16 weeks. If the warts have not cleared after this treatment period, you should consult with your doctor to discuss next steps.
It is important that you do not apply Aldara to areas with open wounds and that you wash your hands thoroughly after using this treatment. This treatment is designed for external use only and should not be used to treat warts in the vagina or anus.
