Thread Starter 
some people sugested stridex for chin acne. well it contains salicylic ( SP?) acid. isn't that poisonous to cats?

I used hydrogen peroxide, and Ginger's cleared up within two weeks. You might just try that instead.

Not certain if Stridex is poisonous, but I assume not, since I've seen it recommended for kitty acne on quite a few sites online.

My vet recommended stridex. I didn't use it, got some prescription cream instead.

My vet also recommended using any type of clear alcohol, such as vodka or gin. It doesn't seem to burn like Stridex and worked great on my cat. I just purchased one of the tiny airplane size bottles of vodka and used it with cotton balls.

I was cat sitting and my friends cat had some acne. Her vet gave me some
?pledjets that were basically stridex type pads.. Can't remember what the ingredients were but I wouldn't be surprised it it was the same thing.
