redness and dryness on BP

when does it end? i just started using a 5% BP gel (Benzaclin). thanks.

Just make sure you arent using too much. I use Duac (which is the same thing as Benzaclin). I only use a pea sized amount for my whole face, and a tiny extra dab on my cheeks (where I breakout the most). I sometimes apply a tiny dab extra on any active pimples too. Oh and it doesn't hurt to moisturize. I currently use the Aveeeno Ultra Claming Line (both moistutizers and the cleanser) and I also use Retin-A at night.

I get red right after I apply the Duac, but it fades withing about 10 minutes.
