Hydroquinone and benzoyl peroxide

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get rid of my dark spots as quickly as possible. Yet I am scared that my acne will recur if I stop using the benzoyl peroxide. Can I use benzoyl peroxide together with 2% hydroquinone?? I am really desperate. I was thinking I could just apply the vanishing 10% benzoyl peroxide then after some minutes or hours then I could apply the 2% hydroquinone....what do I do???Please Help :think:

I know about some of the side effects of hydroquinone, but right now I think it's worth the risk.. I want to use it only at night and only on the dark spots. So I wanted to know if I could still apply benzoyl peroxide then hydroquinone after a few minutes or so.

Thanks for the warning though

I don't think it is recommended to use the two together, the marks may get darker. At least that's what it says on the literature that comes with the prescription hydroquinone cream.

I think maybe if you wait long enough in between it may work, i'd be careful though.

And 2% creams take forever to work, the 4% is the way to go (need a script).
