You do need to be careful with the concentration, however. Salicylic acid can cause salicylate poisoning, which can cause nausea, weight loss. deafness or ringing in the ears, and after 12 hours can cause seizures and potential brain damage and death. Any concoction with salicylic acid should only be used as a wash or topically on necessary spots, not slathered on as a lotion.
