Do not use topical salicylate preparations if you are allergic to salicylates (acetylsalicylic acid-based medications, such as Aspirin®), or if you are taking anticoagulant medications (e.g., warfarin). When administered with anticoagulant medications, a possible additive effect on blood thinning may occur and may increase the risk of bleeding.
For people taking oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) regularly, please speak with your health-care provider before using topical salicylates.
Salicylate products are for external use only. If rash or irritation occurs, discontinue use. If condition worsens or symptoms persist discontinue use and contact your health-care provider.
Avoid contact with eyes. After application, wash hands thoroughly to prevent spreading the product to eyes and mouth. Flush with water if contact does occur.
Don’t bandage the areas where salicylate has been applied and avoid other sources of heat such as heating pads.
Never apply to wounds or damaged skin.
