Imiquimod is available as a cream compound. It targets larger warts and acts on them by stimulating the immune system. When the cream is applied to warts, the body's immunity is locally activated, and some irritation may occur. Apply the cream, and wait for six to ten hours - depending on your physician's directions - to wash off. Ideally, the cream should be applied not more than three times per week. Results may not be immediate, so monitor the area closely and follow your doctor's directions completely.
