How to get rid of breakout after 3 days of benzoyl peroxide?

Recommended Posts

So I was almost clear, literally 2 pimples away. My usual 2% salicylic acid wasn't working, so I decided to try benzoyl peroxide. I had tried it before with 5% and it had no result so I got 10% this time. It got rid of the pimples I wanted it to, but now I'm breaking out in a bunch of tiny ones on the left side of my forehead! There are also ab few big ones that are almost the size of mosquito bites!  School starts again in 3 days! How do I get rid of this??

a lot of people believe 10% BP cream is too strong. 5% or 2.5% is best.

sometimes the quickest way to get rid of a spot/spots is to leave them alone and not irritate them for several days. -no touching, picking, creams, soaps.
