Yes, salicylic acid at 5% can help
Apply the solution with a cotton ball at night after a shower, start 2-3 times a week, and increase as tolerated. Wash your hand afterwards, or your fingers may peel. I like the 5% to 8% concentration for at home salicylic acid peels.
We perform 15-30% peels, however this should be done as a clinical peel, and not home peels.
All the best
