Is Benzoyl Peroxide Wash Necessary For Me?benzoyl peroxide

I've been using a mild cleanser for months now (it's like Cetaphil) and it's been working fine for me. However, my derm told me I could use a BP wash as an 'extra kick' although he also said using Cetaphil was fine. He gave me a 5% BP wash. I used it last night and this morning and found my skin to be red and drier from it. I did not think this would happen because my skin is already used to Epiduo (which has BP in it).
My question is, do I really -need- the BP wash? Or can I just continue to use Cetaphil?

I'd probably continue with just the gentle cleanser and maybe once or twice a week try the BP wash to see how it works for you/how your skin handles it.
