I am very naive to many of you about all the types of medicines for acne. My Question is can someon list the appropiate strengths for certain ance. Her is what i am talking about:

MIld Acne on Face- (put answer here)

Mild Acne of Back-

Moderate Acne on Face

Moderate Acne on Back

Severe Acne on Face

Severe Acne on Back

I know bp ranges from like 1%to 10%, so please inform me.

If you could, i appreciate you doing the same for Saliyic. But from what i have heard, Saliyic is for milder acne, its not as harsh as benzoyl, which directly attacks the bacteria.

BP and SA do different things. SA unclogs pores while BP creates a hostile environment for the acne bacteria.

I personally have seen a great improvement in using the 2 together although I use the SA (Clean & Clear Blackhead Cleanser) in the am when washing my face, and then the BP (Dan's 2.5% gel, much nicer than Proactiv or Neutrogena's). This has kept me pretty clear.

And of course, I use moisturiser and sunscreen every day!
