i started my regimen using the 5% bp because i cant find the 2.5 % bp.

1) is the amount use of the 5% bp on the skin same like the 2.5% bp?

2) what i mean is, do i need put the 5% bp on my whole skin or just on the affected area on my skin?

i just started the regimen for 2 days using the Apricot oil free moisturiser. because im like feeling soooo burning.

really need your opinion!! :))

For five percent I would stick with half of what Dan suggests. http://www.acne.org/regimen.html

If you go down a bit, you'll see the "Treat" discussion (Step 2) - click on the "Expand for Dosage". It's generally recommended that you use BP on any acne prone area - it helps prevent breakouts as well. (So for me, it always goes on entire face, chest, and often behind the ears and upper shoulders.)
