10% benzoyl peroxide wash

I was prescribed 10% benzoyl peroxide wash for my face, chest, and back last week. I am supposed to use it during my shower. I was wondering if anybody has used this medicine before and what kind of effect did it have on your acne. Did it help with red marks? I have mild acne and get mostly pustules. Thanks.

i use a nonperscription 10% benzoyl peroxide wash on my face. i use the clean and clear continuous control wash. i really like what it did to my face. it doesnt dry out my skin but i have oily skin (differin is the only thing that managed to dry it out). i dont know if its a coincident, but right when i started using it my skin got a bit worse at first. i had a small initial breakout, but after id say two weeks my skin was pretty clear. i didnt get any big pimples, just the occasional white head. it doesnt do anything for blackheads though unfortunately. thats just my experience!
