I live in the UK and have always assumed you need a prescription for BP gel in any concentration, is this true? I've read about people ordering online from Amazon and other places but I don't know :s
On another note, my pharmacy doesn't hold 2.5% gel any more and I read on these forums about it being discontinued, is this true for all of the UK?
I ended up taking 5% gel home with the brand name Acnecide. I am a little worried it will burn my face and be really strong, does anyone have any tips for applying a 5% gel? This is my second time trying BP, the first was about 3 years ago. As I recall using 2.5% gel didn't affect my spots much but it was quite a while ago and I'm not entirely sure. Does this mean the best option would be using 5%?
