Imiquimod (ih-mih-kwih-mod) is a prescription medicine that you use at home. It comes in a cream that you apply to your skin. Your dermatologist may prescribe imiquimod to treat:
- Actinic keratosis (AK).
- Basal cell carcinoma (the earliest form of this skin cancer).
- Genital warts.
Sometimes, a dermatologist will prescribe imiquimod to treat another skin condition.
For your dermatologist to prescribe imiquimod, you must:
- Be willing to apply the medicine as instructed.
- Return for follow-up appointments.
- Have a normally functioning immune system.
