Too Much Medication?

Hey everyone,

so I've had acne for years, and I'm 19 now. I've tried several different retinoids and I've been on accutane twice. Right now, the skin on my face fluctuates between mild and moderate acne. However, the skin on my chest/back is clear.

My current regimen is to use a BP 3.5% wash in the morning and then spot treat with 2% SA. Then at night, I use both a mild cleanser and a 2% SA scrub, followed by lots of BP 2.5% all over. On my back and chest, I use nothing.

I'm wondering if I'm over medicating my face? My acne looks inflamed after I put product on it. And since I'm not using anything on my chest/back and they're clear, maybe I should back away from so much medication on my face?

All advice appreciated
