Zyclara is a cream used to treat actinic keratosis on the face and balding parts of the scalp. Actinic keratosis is a precancerous, abnormal skin growth that develops after too much exposure to sunlight. Zyclara is used to treat adults whose immune system (the body's natural defences) is working normally when other skin treatments for actinic keratosis cannot be used or are less appropriate. It contains the active substance imiquimod at 3.75% strength (100 mg cream contains 3.75 mg imiquimod).

Zyclara is a 'hybrid medicine'. This means that it is similar to a 'reference medicine' containing the same active substance, but Zyclara is available in a different strength.

The active substance in Zyclara cream, imiquimod, is an immune response modifier. This means that it uses the immune system to bring about its effect. When imiquimod is applied to the skin, it acts locally on the immune system to trigger the release of cytokines, including interferon. These substances help to kill the abnormal cells in the skin that lead to keratosis.

Zyclara is available as a 3.75% cream in individual sachets. It can only be obtained with a prescription.

One or two sachets of Zyclara are applied in a thin layer to the affected areas of the face or balding scalp once a day before bedtime. The cream should remain on the skin overnight (for about 8 hours) before being washed off.


Zyclara's dosing instructions should not be deviated from in any way. Always be sure to read the label, and if you have any issues, see a medical professional or a pharmacist for clarification.

Never ingest. Only use a drug that is intended to be applied to the skin.

When Zyclara is taken for an extended period of time or when the recommended dose is exceeded, serious skin reactions may occur. It is important to refrain from applying two different imiqtopical formulations to the same area.

It is important to carefully read and then adhere to the instructions provided. Please see your physician or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns about these instructions.

Always remember to wash your hands thoroughly before beginning and after you use Zyclara. In addition, the affected region has to be well cleaned and allowed to air dry for at least ten minutes before the medicine may be administered.

Apply a small coating of the cream all over the surface, and then thoroughly incorporate it. Apply just before going to bed, and then leave it on for the next 8 hours. The first thing you should do in the morning is wash your face with water and a mild cleanser. It is important to refrain from applying plastic bandages to the treated region (you may use cotton gauze). Underwear made of 100 percent cotton should be used whenever possible when one is attempting to get rid of genital warts.

Both the dose and the amount of time that Zyclara should be taken by a patient will vary depending on the condition that is being treated.
