Imiquimod 5% Cream is also used to treat a minor form of skin cancer called superficial basal cell carcinoma, when surgery would not be a medically appropriate treatment.
Imiquad Cream 5% also treats genital warts that appear on the outside of the body, but this medicine is not a cure for genital warts.

Imiquad Cream Dosage
Use Imiquimod 5% Cream exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not use the medication in larger amounts, or use it for longer than recommended by your doctor.
For a typical treatment Imiquad Cream should be applied 2 times per week for a full 16 weeks to a defined treatment area. The treatment area is defined as one contiguous area of approximately 25 cm2 (e.g., 5 cm x 5 cm) on the face (e.g. forehead or one cheek) or on the scalp. Examples of 2 times per week application schedules are Monday and Thursday, or Tuesday and Friday. Imiquimod 5% Cream should be applied to the entire treatment area and rubbed in until the cream is no longer visible. No more than one packet of Imiquad Cream should be applied to the contiguous treatment area at each application.
Your dosage may be different. Please consult your doctor. Follow the instructions on your prescription label. Using too much of this medicine, or using it for too long can increase your risk of severe skin reactions.
