Benzamycin, Proactiv, or both???
I have begun to use Benzamycin for 4 weeks but have seen no improvement. I keep getting new ones. Proactiv did well before but then i got lke 7 breakouts that wouldnt go away for months. Should using both be more effective then seperately. Please help. Good luck to everyone!

I would not recommend using both products at the same time just because you might overly dry out your skin. In my experience,when I put too many different types of topicals my skin got very dry and irritated and I would end up breaking out even more.

Re: Benzamycin, Proactiv, or both???
As I posted in an earlier message "I think its a great mediction when used properly. You are suppposed to put it on areas where you have breakouts as well as on any active pimples, that way you will get fewer new ones, and the current pimples should heal quickly. It releases hydrogen peroxide, which kills bacteria, therefore there should have a lot less bacteria in the areas where you apply it, so hopefully you will get fewer pimples; also the anti-biotic fights bacteria." Good luck!
