This product should not be used on the face or on moles, birthmarks, warts with hair growing from them, or genital/anal warts.Salicylic acid is a keratolytic. It belongs to the same class of drugs as aspirin (salicylates). It works by increasing the amount of moisture in the skin and dissolving the substance that causes the skin cells to stick together.
