Re: Can salicylic acid burn skin too?!?!

Definately shouldn't be permanent, Scurvy. Don't be too worried. Are you applying it once or twice a day....more? I use a Sage Skin 4% sac. acid product that is very good and gentle as it's base is aloe vera. It also has allantoin. I like it because it'll dry up a zit overnight but it doesn't make it all crusty and scabby like other products. I don't think what you are experiencing is permanent, but cut back and see what happens.

Re: Can salicylic acid burn skin too?!?!

The area you used it on is red and peeling because it is irritated. Salicylic acid does not cause burning, certainly not at that %. Dont worry, its doing what its supposed to do, make the area dry and peel, thats what salicylic acid does. However, if you dont like how your skin feels using it, dont use it. I wouldnt moisturise the area either. Just dont apply it anymore and in a few days your skin will be back to normal.
