Hello, it's my first post here, so I wanted to treat my acne problems, made a little research decided to go on benzoyle pyroxide regimen, I am from Europe so I couldn't order medicine from this site, so I told my mum to buy BP in pharmacy, so she brought home one tube of gel (I told her it needs to be 2,5%), so I cleaned up my face put it on and went to sleep first day, while sleeping it smeared around my face covering my eye areas and eyelids, they got little swollen, second day I did the same now my eyelids are a little swollen, red and it feels like they are burning, also i found out that my BP is 10% (it says 100mg per 1g, so I gues it's 10%), not only my eyelids ofc, some parts of my face are really iritated.

So here comes my question, what should I do? - carry on with regimen, but with new BP 2,5% or treat this "redness" with something?

Lower it to 2.5. BP will cause redness though either way for a lot of people
