In Topic: Usage Of 10% Benzyl Peroxide

02 July 2013 - 09:23 PM

Are you talking about 10% cream or wash? the 10% cream that you keep on will definitely be too strong that it'll just dry your skin out. However, 10% benzoyl peroxide washes or bars should be fine because you wash it off after a few minutes. You could always try those.

Use head and shoulders dandruff shampoo as a body wash. My back acne is a lot clearer because most body acne is a fungal issue, and the zinc in the shampoo is antifungal.


I would also get Selsun Blue, another shampoo, so that the back acne doesn't become resistant to just the zinc.

It started around 6 months ago. I think I've found out that its a fungal issue, because before when I used Head and Shoulders Shampoo, it worked for a while. I think it stopped working because the fungus became resistant, so I bought Selsun Blue which has selenium sulfide (a strong antifungal), and it has been clearing my shoulder and back acne significantly. I really hope this works, because right now, I can see myself being clear in less than a month. 


I would definitely buy both Head and Shoulders shampoo as well as Selsun blue, using them as a body wash and leave on for 5 minutes at most. My 8 pimples on each shoulder are now down to 1, with some bumps and scarring of course. Let me know how you do on them!

hahah you guys are all great. despite the bad aspects of acne, you really do get the opportunity to learn how strong you can be. 


and to whoartthou,


i have pretty bad acne on my back, so it's not like a little blemish. There are around 8 big pimples on each shoulder blade, with scaring on my whole upper back. I'll be honest, I also don't see people with acne as bad as me wear tank tops, but i'm hoping that people who do have it, see me and get the confidence to as well. I'm not saying i won't stop trying to treat my acne, but don't bug it to the point where you can't do things you want to do. 


Thanks everyone!

Thank you guys! I wore a tank top to school today, and I only got compliments on my muscles hahaha. So to anyone feeling self conscious about acne limiting their wardrobe, please don't be afraid to wear whatever you want. I think most people know that acne is common, and that it will go away one day. When you look back on the days you had acne, you'll realize how silly you were for making an effort to try to hide it. Also, this applies to girls, too. There is this one girl who I found was very attractive, and when one day she wore a low cut that showed her back, she didn't seem to care at all. Either way, I still found her attractive.
