Wow. I'm solved my acne problem!

Well, sort of. My biggest problem was itchy blotchy skin on my chin that was always painful, blood red, and oily.

What was causing this? The acne medicene!

It was drying out my skin like crazy. I stopped using it about a week ago, and my my skin is no longer red or oily. Sure, I have 2 pimples on my chin, but oh well I'm happy with my skin now.

Yep. While Benzoyl peroxide might not damage your skin too too much, using those cremes will often make you want to touch your zits to 'make sure they're okay'. Plus.. If you put on the creme, you are also spreading the bacteria from your hands onto your face.

Not worth if, if you ask me. Make peace with your skin, unless your skin is mutated and can actually handle the harsh cremes. (My skin couldn't even take salicylic acid 2.0%)

Re: Wow. I'm solved my acne problem!

BP is important in controling acne as long as it's used in moderation. 10% is way to harsh and can aggravate acne. People with mild/moderate acne will probably benefit more from using a 2.5-5% BP cream. If it's to dry then make sure you moisturize.

Re: Wow. I'm solved my acne problem!

Creams are a nightmare. I once burned a section off my chin overnight and had to go to school with a plaster on, claiming I'd fallen off my bike. I'm *sure* everyone believed me!
