Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

Hawthorn is a plant product with minimal side effects, not as such it doesn't contain salicylic acid. It depends on manufacturing company. You need to check on pack for contents of hawthorn. Which provides details on ingredients of pack.

Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.

On my chest and breasts, I have enlarged pores. if I squeeze one of them, white liquidy stuff comes out, followed by blood, then there is blood left in my pore, after a few days the bloody pore turns black, like a blackhead. How do I treat this condition, how do I make the pores not retain blood? I use topical retinoids, benzyl peroxide, and salicylic acid scrub, but I would like to make the pores stop bleeding after the white stuff comes out.
