Discussions that mention benzoyl

Acne board

I just got off the phone with my sons' dermatologist office. 16 yo has severe acne on his back/shoulder blade area. I was told to get benzoyl peroxide at 5 to 8%. No particular brand - could even be store brand they said. It's too harsh for the face but would be great for his back. going to get some tonight. I'll keep you posted on how he does.
