The darkness is just the oils in your skin oxidising. BP is an oxidising agent. I would not worry about it.

Is the BP fixing your acne problems ?

Um yes it made my pimple look small but with a brown spot should I continue using it now ?

The brown spot is probably just oxidised sebum etc. I would not worry about it. Is the benzoyl peroxide fixing your acne ??

Yes kind of how much time does that brown spot take to go away ?

It will probably go away when the skin sloughs off naturally. I would not worry if it is just one pimple. Do you have other pimples that did NOT go brown with the BP ??

Um this is my first time using BP cause I don't have pimples usually I got one pimple and tried BP on that and now I regret using that tbh it didn't work with me well

OK. The brown spot will go away over time.

A dab of tea tree oil on a q tip/cotton bud should treat one-off pimples. It will sting a bit.
