I would say you'd have a higher risk of getting an STD if the area is not covered by a condom. Aldara makes the skin raw and in my opinion will likely make it more susceptible to transdermal infection. My opinion is also that you should just stop Aldara treatment and try electrocautery or even natural remedies (which have worked for me)
Hope this helps!

To add, you can only get STDs if your partner has an STD, but if it is a new partner, you can spread your genital warts if they are uncovered.

Hopefully somebody will be able to give you some advice. Personally, I don't know, but would ask my doctor or pharmacist.
