About Salicure 6% Ointment 30 gm

Salicure 6% Ointment 30 gm belongs to the class of medications called ‘Keratolytic agents’ used to treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne. Eczema is a condition in which skin becomes red, itchy, and inflamed due to external agents such as soaps, dyes, or other irritants. Psoriasis is an autoimmune (immune system attacks healthy cells) skin disorder in which the skin becomes scaly, swelled up and itchy.
