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.

I have bad period cramps and I took two aspirins 81mg, I weigh only about 80 pounds. I know it thins out your blood but do you think I will be ok?

I have bad period cramps and I took two aspirins 81mg, I weigh only about 80 pounds. I know it thins out your blood but do you think I will be ok?

Yes, dose is low: and should not cause bleeding unless you have a specific bleeding disorder. That dose is low and it is safe to take up to 325 to 500 mg per dose for short periods of time If you have bad cramps, you may also find that 1 naproxen/Aleve will give relief. If you regularly get cramps, I recommend that you start Rx as soon as menses begin, as it is easier to prevent cramps than after they arebad. ...Read more
