In brief: Aldara (imiquimod)

Aldara (imiquimod) is a prescription cream used 3x/wk x 12 weeks and is very effective treatment for condyloma.
It is an immune modulator which amps up your immune system which in turn destroys the hpv virus. Also quit smoking as smoking acts as a cofactor in allowing the virus to thrive. Thus, the combination of Aldara (imiquimod) and smoking cessation should be very effective treatment for condyloma.
