hello everyone,

i am 17 years old and i have naturally oily skin and moderate acne, i mostly get whiteheads, rarely i get blackheads.

i was on dosage of isotroin 10mg but because of severe side effects, i had to stop it. my face had almost cleared up during the dosage but the acne returned after i stopped it and my skin got extra oily.

my dermatologist told me to apply benzoyl peroxide 2.5% on my face.
i have noticed that after keeping it on my face for 20-30 minutes, when i wash my face, the color of my skin completely changes.

like you could clearly, extremely easily figure out the area on which benzoyl peroxide was applied. is this normal? i do not use any cleanser before or any moisturizer afterwards as suggested in the regimen.
it also leaves pores which are clearly visible on area between cheeks and nose.

please help me
