Used BP 10% for 6 months

Recommended Posts

Hi, let me first introduce myself.

I am now 16 years of age, and have had acne since around 12.

When I was 14, my dad bought me BP 10%, which I can say has improved my skin ALOT! But then 6 months later, I started to see more spots.

I may just be paranoid as my dad says (he cant see any spots), but I think some spots have appeared again.

I stumbled across this site, and found out about the regimen.

So I now use a product called PanOxyl with Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%. I have a moisturizer from Garnier, and I use an electric shaver, and normal soap.

My question is:

As I have been on BP 10% for a good while, is it okay to skip straight to "ALOT" of Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%?

I have used this regimen for a little under a week now and I must say I have alot of red marks and more spots. Any tips on getting rid of red marks?

Any help would be nice but like I said, it just might be me getting paranoid!

stick to the regimen, don't skip to alot right away. the only difference you'll notice is that probably if you've used 10% recently, you won't get as irritated because your skin is used to the BP. i used 5% for over a month a few months ago, but my skin has still been irritated by the BP.
