How many aspirins a day is it safe to take on a regular daily schedule? I take four 325mg tablets every day.

How many aspirins a day is it safe to take on a regular daily schedule? I take four 325mg tablets every day.

Aspirin Dose: This is a difficult question to answer without knowing why you are taking it. If you are taking Aspirin for its cardioprotectant effect, the dose is considerably lower than what you are taking on the other hand, if you are taking it as an anti-inflammatory agent for osteoarthritis, the dose seems a little low. The doctor who prescribed your Aspirin therapy is the best person to answer this ...Read more

Hi I got a nose piercing changed from a stud to a hoop and soon after a keloid formed I ve tried salt water rinses and saline solutions for about a month with no result is there anything else I can try for example do aspirin pastes work at all before seei

No to aspirin pastes: If you really have a keloid, Aspirin pastes will not work. Neither will any other creams, pastes, or potions. Non surgical treatment of keloids with injections of steroids, like kenalog, may improve the keloid. If this does not work after several treatments, 6 weeks apart. Then surgical excision with possible radiation therapy or kenalog injections may be needed. ...Read more

Can crushed aspirin tablets work on keloid scars?

Can crushed aspirin tablets work on keloid scars?

Many treatments....: There are many treatments for keloids: surgical removal, usually accompanied by steroid injection postoperatively, low dose radiation, and pressure (usually for earlobe keloids in combination with surgery.) we have had good luck with surgery and steroid injections and that is generally my recommended treatment. Crushed aspirin...I'm afraid not. ...Read more

Could a crushed aspirin paste reduce minor swelling of a bug bite?

Great question: Crushed Aspirin paste is used as a remedy for many things like wart removal. Unless there is an allergy to aspirin, it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. It is an anti inflammatory. ...Read more

Can I used aspirin paste (crushed aspirin pills + water) as a daily facial scrub?

Can I used aspirin paste (crushed aspirin pills + water) as a daily facial scrub?

May irritate skin: Aspirin works by exfoliating (removing) the layer of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin that can clog pores. There are many OTC acne products specifically made for the skin that contain aspirin(salicylic acid) also known as Beta Hydroxy Acid. These products are designed to be non-irritating to the skin. I would NOT advise using home made aspirin paste. SEE> http://bit.ly/1GzYLtx ...Read more

My daughter heard a topical paste of aspirin can help reduce inflammation of acne - i'm concerned about possible blood thinning effects - possible?

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
