Yesterday night I applied a tiny dab of clean and clear on the spot benzoyl peroxide 10% treatment to my acne and this is the result: see attachment below.

When I say tiny, I meant a small TINY dab. I did not intend to apply the treatment and spread it so wide.

Right this moment my skin is extremely red, burning, and itching! Is this completely normal? I read that itching and redness will go away overtime but is it normal to have red burning skin? Is Dan's 2.5 benzoyl peroxide for me?



Thanks!

10% is probably too much for you. Try 2.5 %
If that don't work you might be allergic to it.

Thanks,

In the past, I've used Proactiv 2.5% benzoyl peroxide for several years with success until my skin became immune to it. I really hope this is the not case with Dan's 2.5 benzoyl peroxide.

Skin doesn't come immune to 2.5% BP, as far as I know, it must be other factors.
Going to a 10% strength wont make a difference, it's always best to use 2.5%, the only difference 10% makes is dryer skin.

when used correctly dans BP should do you great

No it doesn't look normal. Its a good thing you spot treated because your whole face could look like that. I'd spot treat again with 2.5% and if it causes the same reaction you could very well be allergic

Thanks everyone,

Ind1g0 - I'll take your advice and do a spot-treatment with 2.5% and see how my skin reacts to it.
