Hi doctor! How effective is neostrata glycolic acid face wash (18%) for grade 2 acne scars? I underwent 30% salicylic acid peel thrice. Not much use. So if the face wash is effective then Please suggest a regimen too. Thank you

Forget this stuff. Nothing you can do on your own is going to touch the acne scars. I'm sorry your acne wasn't treated as it should have been, but you do have the option of getting seen by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who may offer laser work, filler, or microsurgery.

Is peeling/chafing of the skin a good thing when using 2% salicylic acid astringent on face? Should it be doing this?

Doesn't sound right . Salicylic acid is a drying agent. Your findings could mean that you're drying the skin of the face too much. Lessen the potency of the formulation or try another product altogether. . Read more...

Peeling (top skin layer), VERY itchy skin on palms & fingers of both hands. Have used OTC creams with salicylic acid, benedryl, etc...did not work.

Contact /irritant. Both contact allergy (from a contact allergen) and an irritant (solvent, excessive hand washing ) can cause itchy hand dermatitis. The answer is avoidance of the offending agent (may need to see allergist or dermatologist to help you identify the agent). Salicylic acid will cause peeling on anyone and Benadryl will do nothing for the rash. No improvement until after avoidance. Read more...
