My husband suffered irritation after shaving. The skin was reddened, covered with uneven spots and much scaly. I heard that salicylic ointment heals and dries wounds well, besides it has a minimum of contraindications. I bought 1% ointment at the pharmacy, and at my own risk applied the drug on my own - applied a thin layer of paste on the cheeks and chin immediately after the husband had shaved. The next day, the spots turned pale, the wounds healed, and after 4 days all signs of inflammation disappeared. In our case, the medicine helped, but I still recommend consulting with your doctor about the appointment of salicylates - I heard that there are allergies, and besides, you need to choose the right composition for the percentage of acid.

At the age of 30 I had bulging calluses on my leg (on the side of my fingers). That only I did not do - smeared with celandine, glued plasters, steamed with soda - nothing helped. Only the outer layer softened a little. Salicylic ointment was advised to me by a friend. Since the drug is freely sold in a pharmacy and is inexpensive, I decided to try this method. Apply the ointment once a day on the corn, protecting the skin around with a gauze napkin. From above - a plaster. Three days later, the corpus callosum softened strongly, and I carefully cut it off. This continued for another 7 days, until a small wound remained in place of the corn. She quickly dragged on from streptocid ointment. The first day after applying the ointment, I experienced a burning sensation and pulsation under the bandage, but then all the discomfort passed completely. Regina S. Sergiev-Posad, 59 years old

I used salicylic ointment in combination with Zinerit for the treatment of juvenile acne. I developed inflamed, bulging acne in the chin, cheekbones, and on the forehead, under the bangs. Salicylic ointment perfectly dries areas of oily skin, preventing the further spread of inflammation. I began to use the drug as a preventive measure - a very effective effect, and most importantly, the cost is affordable for all consumers. Tamara V., Murmansk, 21 years
