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
