Introduction

Researchers have created a new skin cream to fight dangerous diseases caused by dengue and zika virus. According to a recent study, this cream is named Imiquimod or Aldara, which is commonly used to treat genital infections and skin cancer.

Imiquimod or Aldara cream activates the immune system

Researchers found that applying  Imiquimod or Aldara cream after mosquito bites can pre-activate the immune system before the virus becomes a problem. Imiquimod or Aldara cream activates a type of immune system in the skin called a macrophage, it acts immediately to fight the virus that spreads to the body.

Imiquimod or Aldara cream is effective against many viruses

Researchers said that the most important thing in our results is that Imiquimod or Aldara cream does not target only a particular virus, but Imiquimod or Aldara cream is also effective against many different viruses. Researchers hope to develop this strategy as a treatment option, Imiquimod or Aldara cream can be used to deal with many diseases that have not yet been diagnosed. Mosquito bites spread hundreds of viruses that can infect humans. This includes dengue virus, West Nile virus, Zika virus, and chikungunya virus, which have seen widespread outbreaks in recent years.

Imiquimod or Aldara cream will prevent infection from spreading

The researchers used two different models, human skin samples and mice, to understand the effect of skin creams. In both cases, they found that applying this skin cream gave a warning signal that rapidly activated the skin's immune system. It fights any potential infection hazards. It also prevents the virus from spreading around the body and causing disease.

The research was done like this

Researchers studied four types of viruses carried by mosquitoes and they found that applying a cream within 1 hour of the mosquito bite reduced infection rates in their models.
