Problems That Are Treated With Salicylic Acid

Most of the problems that can be resolved with skin shedding are treated with salicylic acid. You must always consult your doctor before using salicylic acid. Normally it is used to treat problems such as

  • Acne
  • Viral Warts
  • Psoriasis
  • Calluses
  • Corns
  • Seborrhoeic Dermatitis
  • Lichen Simplex

Salicylic acid works by breaking down the keratin and then the thickened skin is easy to remove. For acne, salicylic acid works by breaking down the blackheads and whiteheads. It also slows down the unnatural shedding of cells inside the gland that block the gland opening and form acne.

Salicylic acid comes in many strengths and many forms for use. You have to talk to your doctor about these issues. Normally salicylic acid preparations are available in strength up to 30%, beginning from as low as 0.5%. The preparations may be in the form of solutions for topical application, creams, pads, lotions, ointments, gels, plasters, formulated in shampoos. etc.
