5month Face Rash from Benzoil peroxide

Recommended Posts

I did the acne regimen for about 8 months, and around October 09, my skin became very sensitive and my face suddenly flared up one day and I developed a red rash on each cheek. I have since stopped using all acne products except a gentle cleanser.

The rashes have not faded... I am assuming it was from using too much benzoil peroxide at once. But it has not faded and It has been early 5 months.

How will this go away?

When you say rash, what exactly do you mean? Is it bumpy, dry, flaky, itchy, etc.?

Without knowing what type of rash you have, the only thing I would recommend is a calming cleanser, one specifically for redness (I know Eucerin has a Redness Relief line of products, and Aveeno has a calming cleanser and lotion).

Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you.
