Salicyclic acid with oak bark ointment contains 30 mg salicylic acid per gram in a base containing: Benzoic acid, polyethylene glycol 400, polyethylene glycol 3350 and oak bark extract (QRB-7).
The mechanism of action of is salicyclic acid with oak bark is not known. While the following animal data are available, their clinical significance is unknown. It has been demonstrated that salicyclic acid with oak bark significantly reduces methicillin- resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) protected by biofilms in wounds using porcine models. In addition, salicyclic acid with oak bark stimulates reepithelialization of second- degree burns in porcine models.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluated the rate of wound re-epithelialization. Four partial-thickness wounds (2×2 cm & 0.2 mm deep) were created under local anesthesia on the thighs of 13 normal, healthy, male volunteers with an electro keratome. Salicyclic acid with oak bark substantially increased the rate of re-ep- ithelialization by 63% over the vehicle alone (p<0.01) and 77% over untreated control (p<0.005).
SALICYLIC ACID Indications and Usage
An external treatment for the inflammation and irritation associated with many common forms of dermatitis, including certain eczematoid conditions. These conditions include complications associated with pyodermas. Indicated also in the treatment of insect bites, burns and fungal infections.
Salicyclic acid with oak bark is contraindicated for use in those patients who are hypersensitive to topical polyethylene glycols.
For external use only. Not to be used in eyes.
Drug Interactions with SALICYLIC ACID
It is not known if Salicyclic acid with oak bark interacts with other topical medications applied to the treatment area. The use of salicyclic acid with oak bark with other topical drugs has not been studied.
Salicyclic acid with oak bark is generally well tolerated and non-irritating. A small percentage of patients may experience a temporary burning sensation upon application of the ointment.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Patients should be advised to follow these step-by-step instructions for application of salicyclic acid with oak bark ointment: Hands should be washed thoroughly.
When using tubes, the tip of the tube should not come into contact with the area to be treated; the tube should be recapped tightly after each application.
If applying with a cotton-tipped applicator, which is recommended, use once and discard. Salicyclic acid with oak bark ointment should be applied twice a day for best results.
Gently rinse the area to be treated with saline or water and then pat dry. Salicyclic acid with oak bark ointment can be applied directly to the wound or placed on dry gauze and then placed on the wound. Wet-Packs or Wet-To-Dry Dressings are not recommended since they will dilute the ointment and decrease its effectiveness. Salicyclic acid with oak bark is designed to provide moisture to the wound.
Spread a generous quantity of salicyclic acid with oak bark ointment evenly over the desired area to yield a thin continuous layer of approximately 1/8 of an inch of thickness. There may be a mild warming sensation or slight burning, to the treated area for 3-5 minutes after application. If irritation occurs or symptoms persist after 10 days, discontinue use and consult your physician.
Try to keep the area being treated clean and exposed to air when possible. Apply an ap- propriate dressing to shield the area from clothes or exposure to water or dirt.
If there is no improvement in the wound within 7 days, consult your physician for further evaluation of the wound. If there is no response to the ointment at all, then the wound should be re-evaluated for other contributing factors to the wound healing process.
Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients has not been established.
