So I don't have acne on my face but I have backne. The doctor prescribed me with benozyl peroxide 2.5%. I had a spot yesterday on my face so I thought what the hell let's put some of this on the area. I applied a generous amount. This morning I woke up to my skin being extremely dry. It then started to peel off leaving redness and it's incredibly sore. I noticed that it's taken the first layer of skin off too. I'm so worried that I've damaged my skin now. Help!!! What do I do?

Moved to the regimen forum.

 

Don't apply any more BP until your skin has recovered.  Keep your skin moisturised and out of the sun.  It will heal in a few days.
