Salicylic Acid Powder



Use with caution because salicylic acid is in the same family as aspirin and will be absorbed into the skin and sometimes can burn the skin! Dandruff is a scalp condition which produces a dry, flaking scaling scalp. Most people with dandruff typically will treat their head with shampoos containing selenium sulfide, salicylic acid or coal tars. Corticosteroids may also be applied to help limit the dandruff.
