Cannot afford aldara (imiquimod) (or generic) in the slightest bit; pharmacy said $200+/treatment. Warts are spreading fast. Is there an alternative?

In brief: Yup
Aldara (imiquimod) is crazy expensive.
There are many treatments that are far more cost effective including cyrotherapy, podophylin, cantharidin, and others.

In brief: Salicylic acid
Some less expensive options are podophyllin, salicyclic acid (compound w, duofilm), canthacur.
