Reviews for Salicylic acid topical

Harriet · Taken for less than 1 month January 3, 2021

Wart Remover (salicylic acid) for Warts: “I gently painted numerous warts on my chest with Wart Magic for two days. It seemed to take ages to dry and spread when I dressed I developed an extremely violent allergic reaction. It spread far and wide. My ears rang. Hearing is reduced. The worst is that my entire chest went blood red, was and still is hot and moist. At times I was not aware of any irritation beyond that, but all of a sudden, I became so itchy I wanted to tear my skin to pieces. I stopped using it completely and consulted a pharmacist's nurse. She prescribed Allergex. I have taken 2 tablets so far, twelve hours apart. My skin has not yet improved. A tiny wart on the back of my hand did come out, although the surrounding skin is extremely itchy. The other warts are worse than ever. I will need to have them professionally burnt off. I will never use Wart Magic again. One semi-dried wart came off an hour after applying.”

CeraVe SA Renewing (salicylic acid) for Acne: “I have tiny skin colored bumps on my butt cheeks and backs of arms..sometimes if I sit for a while, the bumps will feel like little ant bites stinging me, its very painful. I heard about CeraVe SA from a friend and so I gave it a try. Within days, my bumps were significant reduced and no more ant bite feeling. It also helped smooth out the rough parts on the heels of my feet. Definitely recommend to anyone who might have this condition..great product!”

Compound W (salicylic acid) for Warts: “I had 2 warts on my knuckles. The compound w gel "burned" the skin, then hardened to a white patch. The directions said apply twice a day, but I was unsure, because the white patch, almost like a scab, lasted 2 days . when it fell off, I tried again for another 3 days. By then the skin where the warts had been was red and scabby. I am not sure if all the wart is gone, and don't know if I should continue.”

Compound W (salicylic acid) for Warts: “I used the wart remover pads which I purchased at the local drug store. Within 3 hours of applying I had a high fever. Then my leg swelled and turned red. I was taken by ambulance to he hospital. Within a few days my skin started blistering, leaking fluid and it swelled so much that my leg was sliced open on both sides to stop the swelling, my toes were sliced open as well as top of foot. It's been 5 months of living nightmare.”

Compound W (salicylic acid) for Warts: “Compound-W caused second degree burns on my knuckles where I applied a few drops on warts. Could not get compound-w off my skin. It acts like a super-glue. After few days, scraped the white product off which caused sores. Applying Neosporin to heal the sores. No warning on product box or tube to warn about the super-glue effect. Will not use this dangerous product again.”

Clarissabel · Taken for less than 1 month November 4, 2016

Clinique Acne Solutions Spot Treatment (salicylic acid) for Acne: “I had a bad reaction to the acne solution. Never had that happen after 15 years of using Clinique products. I put a small drop on 3 different places where I had small pimples. I woke up with a rash, dry, itchy skin, pain and irritation. I'm seeking medical attention after home remedy and Benadryl didn't help it actually spread.”

Bensal HP (salicylic acid) for Dermatological Disorders: “I was given this medicine to "sample". I had a brown recluse spider bite on my knee that had already began necrotizing the tissue. It looked like a black, blown out gun shot wound, the size of the palm of my hand. My Dr. was recommending surgery to remove the necrosis and ultimately the need for a skin graft. Bensal HP avoided all of that. The necrosis dried up and fell away, the skin has closed in and regenerated itself. An amazing ointment that saved my leg! I'm a believer in Bensal HP! My General Surgeon was amazed! 3 week healing time! Amazing!”
