Imiquimod reaction timeline

I’m in week two of Imiquimod with almost no skin reaction at all. Can any others share their timeline and advice if I’m not seeing a reaction yet? The sBCCs are small and on my legs. I’ve had many before and wanted to try this approach instead of more excisions and scarring. Thank you! 

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    As the online community is divided up into different cancer support groups I'm going to recommend that you join and post in the skin cancer group as you'll then connect directly with others who have used Imiquimod.

    To join, just click on the link I've created and, once you've joined, you can start a new post in the same way as you did here and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

    It would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
