My Doc asked me to wash off BP

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am 27 yrs old and have been suffering from Acne (white heads/cysts) since 12 years. Recently my Skin Doctor advised me to use BP 2.5% . But he has asked me to apply it for only 2 hours once a day and then wash off. Can you please advice if this regimen is too gentle to cure my 12 yrs of acne suffering. Please help!!

I don't see how 2 hours a day is gonna cut it.

The way I see it- if your doctor thinks 2 hours a day would help, then having it on 24/7 would be even better! (As long as you go into it gradually and don't let your skin get super irritated- which could make it worse!)

My derma prescribed me BP 2.5% during my initial bouts with acne to be applied every other day with other antibacterial combination (it was too gentle for the acne). I'm using 5% BP twice a day (applied thinly) with a good moisturizer. This controls my acne. Observe your skin and adjust as necessary. (had acne for 1 year, 3 mos)
