Doctor insights on:
Not appropriate: Lice medication is over the counter and has multiple names. See your drugstore. If you are uncertain about the diagnosis see your doctor and she will prescribe medication for you with detailed instructions regarding your clothing, sheets, towels, and laundry in general as well as your household. It is infectious and contagious.
My doctor has prescribed me salicylic acid gel cleanser and differin (adapalene) for my acne marks, do you think it's effective for acne marks?
Depends: This depends on the severity of the scars/marks. It is a good regimen for preventing new acne scars, but ones that are already present pose a different problem. If you have deep pits and scars from previous cystic lesions, even the salicylic acid may not be enough to remove these. You may want to work with a dermatologist or even a plastic surgeon if you have significant scarring.
No: I wouldn't put them on the same spot. The clindamycin is for infection. Salicylic acid is for muscle soreness. If you need to use them on the same spot, it would be better to wait and use tham after the infection is gone. Otherwise space them apart as far as is possible. They will both absorb alright, but you don't want one to block the absorption of the otherSee 1 more doctor answer
I used salicylic acid to my fungus inf. I notice it doesn't burn at all. It hurts when u apply but itch gone but look the same.?
Try antifungal cream: Salacylic acid is a keratolytic (what a big word!). This means that it breaks down the skin that it's applied to. This is a nice treatment for warts or keratoses. However, for a fungal infection, the best treatment is to apply any of the athlete foot creams like Lamisil (terbinafine) or clotrimazole.
Acid: It does give you a mild chemical peel.
I have acne marks (not scars) that aren't going away. Have'em since 4 years. Nothing (chemical peels, salicylic acid, hydroquinone, sunscreen) works?
Acne Scars: Ice pick and scallop (scooped out) type facial acne scars are permanent. Treatment modalities include but are not limited to mechanical dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and surgical scar revision. See a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to determine what would be best for you.See 1 more doctor answer
Not for spots: Use them on a regular basis to prevent new lesions. If this isn't working, get with your physician. You also need to know that enjoying your own body is not a health problem. Wishing you the best.
Could be: Salicylic acid is the main ingredient in wart removal solutions. It acts in a direct "burn" like toxic effect on the wart & if spilled over normal skin will have the same general effect. Depending on the strength of the solution & time on the skin, it could burn several layers of skin at a time.
Dry irritated skin: Salicylic acid is an over-the-counter acne medication. It can cause excess dryness and some scaliness of the skin, but these side effects can be lessened with an oil-free moisturizer. It can also cause irritated skin, which improves if the salicylic acid is used less frequently. Salicylic acid is less irritating than benzoyl peroxide but is likely less effective than benzoyl peroxide against acne.
Several treatments: It will usually take several treatments.Get a more detailed answer ›
I have icthyosis in my lower leg, which is not responding that much to treatment I take. Can I use salicylic acid for this. How can make a lotion with it?
Dermatologist: The treatment recommendation requires an evaluation and diagnosis - so it would be difficult to recommend a specific treatment without seeing and examining this problem.
I get so many pimples around my nose area. I used salicylic acid by neutrogena but it did not help. My skin is quite oily too. Could you give some tips?
Salicylic & Glycolic: You can use the products together. However the two products used together my cause increased dryness or irritation.
