What should I avoid while using Salex (salicylic acid topical)?
Wart remover medicine may be flammable. Do not use near high heat or open flame such as a burning candle. Wash the medicine off your hands before handling a hair styling appliance (such as a curling or straightening iron). High heat could cause the medicine to ignite and burn your skin.
Do not smoke until the gel has completely dried on your skin.
Avoid getting this medication in your eyes, nose, mouth, rectum, or vagina. If this does happen, rinse with water. Do not use the medicine on sunburned, windburned, dry, chapped, irritated, or broken skin.
Avoid using other medications on the areas you treat with salicylic acid topical unless your doctor tells you to.
