Reactions to Zyclara
Although some people will not have any problems while using Zyclara® (imiquimod cream), most people using this medicated skin cream will develop some type of skin reaction. Extensive clinical studies on this medicine have shown that some of the most commonly reported skin reactions to Zyclara included:
- Scabbing or crusting
- Flaking, scaling, or dryness.
While most of these reactions tend to be minor and easy to treat, there are some serious reactions to Zyclara that require immediate medical treatment. Contact your healthcare provider right away if you are using this cream and experience problems such as flu-like symptoms, severe skin reactions, or difficulty breathing.
