Ok so I have acne but I also have red flushing on the T section of my face. Cheeks and forehead. I'm a teen and teens don't usually get rosacea right? Could this be due to an allergic reaction to Benzoyl Peroxide or what? My face does get really dry after I apply the stuff on but I usually moisturize. But the main problem is that my face is really red like I'm blushing all the time. Could someone help me with this problem? Thanks alot

It doesn't sound like an allergic reaction, but it could be some irritation. It could also be from sun exposure in that BP sensitises the skin to sun. Use a moisturiser with sunscreen. I'd try that first. If it doesn't work (give it a week or so), then perhaps decrease the amount or frequency of BP use. Trial and error.
