My daughter heard a topical paste of aspirin can help reduce inflammation of acne - I'm concerned about possible blood thinning effects - possible?
Acetylsalicylic acid: Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) is an old standby for acne & is the active ingredient at ~ 2% in most otc face washes. It works by loosening old skin cells & opening blocked pores. I would be reluctant to make your own paste as the material in higher strengths is painted on warts to destroy them. (& would likely burn burn the skin)skin application has negligible effect on the blood. ...Read more

Aspirin: Aspirin works by 'poisoning' platelets. Once all the platelets have been affected by the Aspirin, if you stop there will daily be more platelets entering circulation that are not 'poisoned'. This is why Aspirin is given daily. One whole aspirin (325mg) a day generally will ensure that all the platelets are hit. The 81mg/day dose is effective for about 80% of people. ...Read more

I have low blood pressure, so have to be careful with meds I take. Can low dose aspirin OR Allegra (fexofenadine) allergy meds lower blood pressure?
No Not likely:
Neither of these drugs have any effect on your blood pressure.
Low blood pressure is not a disease, so do not list it as such. BP on the lower end of the normal range is actually a good thing as long as you do not feel dizzy or faint when you stand up from a lying or sitting position. Most people can tolerate BP as low as 100/60 mm. ...Read more

Yes, but depends: The issue is why you may need to thin your blood. Aspirin is a good, relatively safe, inexpensive antiplatelet agent. Sometimes, though, antiplatelet activity is not adequate "blood thinning", e.g., for phlebitis or artificial heart valve protection (especially mitral valve), or an acute stroke. For long term use, or less critical circumstances, Aspirin in varying doses may be adequate. ...Read more

No: Aspirin is used to prevent the formation of blood clots through the inhibition of aggregation of cells (platelets) that are part of the clot. Once the clot is formed, Aspirin is not very effective in dissolving it. This is because the clot has material incorporated in it that does not respond to the action of aspirin. ...Read more

Incorrect Concepts: Blood viscosity is primarily due to glycoprotein molecules protruding from the membranes of red blood cells producing resistance of rbcs to slide past one another; reduced in anemia (rbcs farther apart). Aspirin & antioxidants have little to no effect on this but can inhibit platelets &/or the clotting or clot destruction protein cascades so as to slow speed of blood clotting. What is "too much"? ...Read more
Anticoagulants are any of a variety of drugs which decrease the body's ability to make or sustain blood clots. They fall, generally, into two categories.
