Salicylic Acid is all what your skin needs. This medication is used to treat acne that is mild to moderate. It’s possible to use it alongside other acne treatments. Before mixing acne treatments, see your doctor. Salicylic acid is a member of the salicylates drug class. Salicylic acid may help the skin shed dead cells from the top layer and reduce redness and irritation when applied to the skin. Check to see whether you are allergic to this product before using it for the first time. Apply a tiny quantity to one or two minor spots of acne for three days to see whether it works. If you develop an adverse response to this product, stop using it immediately and seek medical attention (see the symptoms of an allergic reaction in the Side Effects section). You can use the product if you don’t have an allergic response to it. This medicine is only to be used on the skin. Do not allow this medicine come into contact with your eyes, nose, mouth or any damaged skin to avoid irritation (e.g., cuts, scrapes, rashes). If you receive the medicine in such places, rinse it out for 15 minutes with cold water.
Apply a thin layer of the medicine to the parts of your skin afflicted by acne, generally 1 to 2 times a day or as prescribed by your doctor, whether you’re using a cream, lotion, solution, or gel. Wash the afflicted area carefully with a mild cleanser before applying each dosage, then pat dry. A tiny amount of medication should be applied to the afflicted region and gently rubbed in.
When you’re going to use a cleanser with salicylic acid, make sure you damp the damaged area first. For 10 to 20 seconds, gently massage the cleanser into the skin. Scrubbing the skin is not a good idea. Rinse well and pat dry after working up a good lather. If the cleanser dries out too much, you may need to rinse it off sooner or use it less frequently. For further information, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
Quantity is determined by your medical condition and treatment response. Do not take larger doses, use this medication more frequently, or use it for longer than recommended. Your condition will not improve faster, but the risk of adverse effects will be higher.
Seek medical help right once if your illness persists or worsens, or if you suspect you have a significant medical problem.
