I tried benzoyl peroxide 5% with good results in the past (in 2 weeks my back and face were very smooth) and now I am trying it again. I grabbed the PanOxyl bar but the clerk in the pharmacy questioned the 5% one, so I grabbed the 10%. Is it ok to use it on my face? Reading the site I hear its too strong.. I dove right into using it twice a day and on the 3rd day it got too dry, 4th day I had to put moisturizer on my face and the next it was too much so I reduced it to every other day. Now it is peeling and burning a little. Is the peeling doing good for my skin, maybe throwing away old skin? And is the topical cream better than the PanOxyl soap bar? Thank you. eusa_dance.gif
