How to apply Salicylic Acid 5% Ointment?
It is advisable to apply the minimum amount of ointment locally in relation to the area to be treated with a light massage. Start the treatment by applying the medicine only on a small portion of the skin or once a day, so as not to irritate the skin.
Keep this medicine out of the reach and sight of children. The medicine should not be swallowed. Salicylic acid is irritating and may cause dermatitis. In the treatment of corns and warts it is necessary to protect the surrounding intact skin to minimize the absorption of the active ingredient. Salicylic acid should not be used for long periods of time, at high concentrations, on large areas of the body, or on injured or inflamed skin, as excessive absorption of the active ingredient can cause systemic salicylate poisoning mainly in children, which it can be fatal. Avoid contact with mouth, eyes, genitals and other mucous membranes. Use with caution in children as experience with the use of salicylic acid in this population is limited.
Store in a tightly closed container, away from light. After first opening the container, the medicine must be used within 12 months. After this period the residual medicine must be discarded.
