[Pic] Is This Normal?

Yesterday night I applied a tiny dab of clean and clear on the spot benzoyl peroxide 10% treatment to my acne and this is the result: see attachment below.

When I say tiny, I meant a small TINY dab. I did not intend to apply the treatment and spread it so wide.

Right this moment my skin is extremely red, burning, and itching! Is this completely normal? I read that itching and redness will go away overtime but is it normal to have red burning skin? Is Dan's 2.5 benzoyl peroxide for me?

Thanks!

Thanks,

In the past, I've used Proactiv 2.5% benzoyl peroxide for several years with success until my skin became immune to it. I really hope this is the not case with Dan's 2.5 benzoyl peroxide.

Skin doesn't come immune to 2.5% BP, as far as I know, it must be other factors.

Going to a 10% strength wont make a difference, it's always best to use 2.5%, the only difference 10% makes is dryer skin.

when used correctly dans BP should do you great

No it doesn't look normal. Its a good thing you spot treated because your whole face could look like that. I'd spot treat again with 2.5% and if it causes the same reaction you could very well be allergic
