AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of salicylic acid sulfur creams.
Salicylic acid sulfur creams are used to treat acne and other skin disorders and dandruff and other scalp disorders, such as seborrheic dermatitis. Salicylic acid and sulfur are known as keratolytic agents.
Salicylic acid sulfur cream causes the skin to shed dead cells from its top layer by increasing the amount of moisture in the skin and dissolving the substance that makes the cells clump together. This effect makes it easier to shed the skin cells, softens the top layer of skin, and decreases scaling and dryness. Salicylic acid belongs to the same class of drugs as aspirin (salicylates).
As with all pharmaceuticals, some unwanted effects can occur from the use of salicylic acid sulfur cream. Always consult a doctor or health care professional for medical advice before use.
Common side effects include burning, redness, and peeling skin near. Serious side effects may include severe redness/blistering/peeling of the scalp, rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face, tongue, and throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
Seek medical attention if any adverse effects occur.
For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor.
