my regimen and questions

Recommended Posts

From the FAQs:

Q: Can I use salicylic acid with the Regimen?

A: The jury is still out. The majority of medical books I scoured for acne medication information specifically warn against the combination of salicylic acid with benzoyl peroxide, calling it "overly irritating". Several people on the Regimen have noted this. This warning is echoed when combining benzoyl peroxide with several other acne medications as well, resorcinol and sulfur to name two. Remember, irritation aggravates breakouts.

However, some Acne.org members have used salicylic acid with benzoyl peroxide successfully. If you want to try this, first use the Regimen without salicylic acid until you are completely clear. Then, feel free to add in one variable at a time such as the addition of salicylic acid.

Thank you. I'm a male but I'm not beyond using concealer if it helps to blend the acne with my skin. However the stuff i have is made by Neutrogena and has .5% salicylic acid. Is there another brand that someone could recomend? I don't want it to have any reactions with the BP.
