Can I use salicylic acid and BP along with Differin?

SA is a old and medieval treatment dealing with acne now a days. You can usually get strong forms of SA OTC (over the counter) No, this isn't too much, it is fine. Although, this doesn't deal with prescription acne. The only thing that is prescription is differin, so I am guessing you must have really mild acne. This is over the counter medication. Unless, your taking extremely strong prescription doses of this, which would make no sense, seeing how it is ineffective compared to other things available on the market. To answer your question -- it is fine.

FYI: Depending upon how much resistance you have, you're probably going to experience heavy skin dryness and flaking. I would recommond a good moisturizer. Best of luck.
