Acne Treatment Using Aspirin.?
. I want to treat acne with aspirin. At the pharmacy I didn’t find aspirin, there was cardio aspirin. What is the difference between aspirin and cardio aspirin?
Hello Wulan Putri Rahayu,
Aspirin (or acetylsalicylic acid) is a drug used to treat pain, reduce fever, and inflammation. This drug is also used for blood thinning which is to prevent blood clots and is intended to prevent heart attacks, or blockage of blood vessels of the brain (stroke). Cardio aspirin is a drug with a trademark that has the same content, namely acetylsalicylic acid.
Aspirin is a strong medicine and should be prescribed by your doctor, the use of this drug should be as directed by your doctor. The preparations available in Indonesia for both drugs are tablets and are generally used as an anti-pain medication or heart medication. The use of aspirin or acetylsalicylic acid for acne is not very recommended and there is not much data or research on this matter. You should consult a dermatologist about the choice of medication the best for you.
Some side effects that can occur when using aspirin include:
If used as a mask can cause skin to become dry and irritated
Abdominal discomfort (heartburn, nausea, vomiting)
Bleeding in the digestive tract (vomiting blood, black or bloody bowel movements)
