Dilemma... how much Benzamycin to use.

Guest Zitro

Hi, this probably should be on another message board but I needed to vent a little here.

I have moderate/severe acne with some small cysts ... especially on my chin which can seriously affect me in school.

When I use little benzamycin ... I have the risk to get cysts

When I use more benzamycin my chin gets a little pinkish in color

when I tried to find a happy medium these days ... I broke out horribly bad sad.gif

I will be having school next monday and I will look hideous ... after I looked great this week and I've been hit on by many cute girls in my guitar class. I hope I will get better ... I have been feeling down this weekend for many reasons and now a breakout doesn't make things better..

sorry ... needed to vent.

Benzamyacin is a stronger dose of Bp right??? or am I totally mistaken....

if that's the case....maybe its too harsh for your skin???

you could try a 2.5% like the one dan sells...

is a 2.5% BP the same as the repairing lotion of proactive? because it irritates my skin much worse than the 5% BP in benzamycin.

I reduced the amount ... but I got one of those I call "pre-cyst" and I'm a little afraid I may have a red cyst again. But I already made my choice and chose to reduce the amount and stop using aveeno cleanser in my chin.

Thanks for replying, apock
