Frequently asked questions about Salicylic Acid

Q. Does Dersol 30% Ointment lighten skin?
Dersol 30% Ointment is primarily used for corns, warts, callus, and verucca. However, it can also be used for lightening the skin especially in acne. Consult your doctor who can advise you regarding the correct choice of skin lightening cream, containing Salicylic acid.
Q. Does Dersol 30% Ointment affect skin?
Dersol 30% Ointment works by softening the hard skin growth (seen commonly in corns and calluses), making it easier to remove with a pumice stone or emery board. It helps by killing the virus that causes warts and verrucas. Warts and verrucas are small excessive growths of skin caused by a type of virus. However, corns and calluses are hard, thick pads of skin caused by pressure and friction.
Q. How long does it take for Dersol 30% Ointment to start working?
The length of treatment will vary depending on the size and resistance of the wart, verruca, corn, or callus. Some warts and verrucas require up to 12 weeks treatment before they disappear, whereas others may take a relatively short time. Continue using it as prescribed by your doctor.
Q. What precautions do I need to follow while applying Dersol 30% Ointment?
Take special care while applying Dersol 30% Ointment, the gel should not come in contact with surrounding healthy skin. Special precautions should be taken for young children’s delicate skin, as this may cause irritation. Do not apply excessive amounts of gel. Keep the gel away from your eyes, nose, and mouth, and from cuts, and scratched or eroded skin. Avoid spilling as this may cause damage to you, your clothing, and your possessions. Do not use it near flames or ignition sources (e.g., burning cigarettes or anything else that might ignite it), as it is volatile and highly flammable.
Q. How should Dersol 30% Ointment be applied?
Soak the affected area in warm water for 2 to 3 minutes. Dry the area thoroughly, using your own towel, so as to avoid infection. Carefully apply a thin coating (one or two drops) of the medicine to the top of the wart, verruca, corn, or callus. Avoid the medicine from spreading to the surrounding healthy skin. Allow the medicine to dry for a few minutes to form a small white patch. This patch sticks to the treated area and is water resistant. There is no need to cover the treated area with a sticking plaster. Wait till the next evening, carefully peel or pick off the white patch of dried gel from the wart, verruca, corn, or callus.
Q. Should Dersol 30% Ointment be left overnight?
At the beginning of the treatment, Dersol 30% Ointment is usually used once daily in the evening. The area is not washed off after application of Dersol 30% Ointment, so it can be left overnight unless you experience irritation. However, if you experience irritation, consult your doctor.
Q. What should prompt me to discontinue Dersol 30% Ointment?
You should discontinue Dersol 30% Ointment and consult your doctor if you experience severe local irritation, which means severe redness, dryness and itching and stinging/burning sensation.
Q. How often should I apply Dersol 30% Ointment?
The initial dose is preferably once daily in the evening. Later, the doctor will gradually increase the dose to twice daily (most probably morning and evening).
Q. How long does Dersol 30% Ointment take to show its effects?
You may see an improvement after 4-6 weeks of treatment. You may need to use this treatment for longer to see the full benefits. This is normal for acne treatments. If your acne does not get better after 1 month or if it gets worse, talk to your doctor immediately.
Q. Do you apply moisturizer before or after Dersol 30% Ointment?
You may apply moisturizer an hour after applying Dersol 30% Ointment. Consult your doctor in case of any doubt or concern.
