- If you are using salicylic acid to treat acne and it is irritating your skin, consider switching to other topical products such as Differin or Retin-A. These products do require a prescription so you must visit your family doctor before you can start treatment.
- Do not continue using salicylic acid until your burn is completely treated. Otherwise, you will further irritate the burn.
