    I'm using imiquimod 5% 2x a week for 16 wks. Have completed two weeks. Is it okay to use one package for two applications if I keep it packet clean? (I've been doing that thus far.) Reply

    Hi, Yes! You can keep Imiquimod 5% for 2 weeks but make sure not more than 15 days after sachet opened and also you need to keep it in a clean place.

    Hi, Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use a calendar to mark the days you will be applying the medication each week. Before applying the medication, wash the area to be treated with soap and water, and dry thoroughly. Use a new packet of cream for each use. Apply as directed by your doctor just before going to bed. Wash your hands with soap and water after each application. Do not cover the treated area with bandages or other waterproof coverings. Leave the cream on overnight, usually for about 8 hours if treating actinic keratoses or basal cell carcinoma, or 6-10 hours for warts or as directed. In the morning, wash the treated area with soap and water to remove the cream. Do not bathe or wet the treated area before the prescribed application time has passed. Do not leave imiquimod cream on longer than prescribed by your doctor. Throw away any partly used packets of medication.
