I used a compound ointment with: Salicylic acid 20%

Customer Question

Hi, I used a compound ointment with:
Salicylic acid 20%
Hydrophilic Ointment 50%
Hidalone Cream 30%
The hidalone cream made the salicylic be more efective/stronger and burned and exfoliated my skin and improved my scars appearence.
Since the hidalone cream got out of market I can't find a substitute, can you please tell me what is the best substitute to hidalone cream so the salicylic acid can be more effective?
(I tried Pandermil as substitute of Hidalone and didn't work either.)

Guten Tag,

Wenn Sie über 50 Jahre alt sind und / oder eine Herzschwäche haben, sollten Sie sich bitte an den kassenärztlichen Notfalldienst wenden. Sind Sie jung und neigen zu niedrigem Blutdruck, können Sie den mit den rezeptfreien Effortiltropfen eine Besserung erreichen. Kalte Güsse auf die Beine und Hinlegen helfen zusätzlich.

Gute Besserung!
