Some background information would be good I guess.

I started using benzoylperoxide (BP as it's called in America etc I believe) about a week ago, together with some antibiotics to get rid of my acne. Benzoylperoxide has dried my skin out really badly, to the point that it flaked. It happend at school and a few of my friends commented on it, asking me if I was burnt or whatever. So when I got home I scraped most of the dead skin off.

Skin is quite a bit softer now, I also started using a moisturizer, which seems to help a bit.

Anyway, I was wondering if the spots on my cheeks are scars or still acne. Thank you :)

I noticed you commented in my thread, your skin is very similar to mine like you said. If either of us get anywhere we need to let each other know lol!

I get the impression with my skin that it is likely hyper pigmentation with very very shallow scarring which is a good thing really because once the hyper pigmentation finally clears up there shouldn't be much left to look at. My GP recommended bio oil but from what I've read that doesn't seem like a good idea.

Do you still break out at all?
