Benzamycin - Is it supposed to do this

Recommended Posts

Hi I have been on this for about 4 days and it has actually calmed down the evil cystsy kinda acnes on my chin really well, but when I apply it about 5 mins later, it all dries up and makes like a face mask on my face which cracks and peals off of I move my face, is it suppose to do this?

Yes! After I apply my benzaclin, I don't talk or smile because my face will crack. That brings on an intense itching feeling that SUCKS. I've noticed that if I apply the Benzaclin not too long after I wash my face, there is still moisture from the water and the benzaclin doesn't aggrevate my face too much. Hope this helps!

If you wash your face and immidiately dry it WELL, not much moisture will be drawn from your skin. Then, wait 15 minutes to apply.

The dryness should let up with time, usually a month or so.
