Is Moisturizer with Salicylic Acid Safe to Use One Month After Rhinoplasty?
I had Septorhinoplasty almost 5.5 weeks ago. After 4 weeks, I started using a moisturizer (called Garnier Long-lasting shine control). I applied too much I think tonite--there was a slight burning sensation on the bridge of my nose. I looked up the ingredients online--turns out there is a small amount of salicylic acid in it (NOT advertised on the box/container). Could this change the result, say by widening my narrowed bridge or causing the hump to return? Is it safe to use? Should I switch?
