i remember reading on this website from dan that your skin never becomes immune to benzoyl peroxide, and that if it works once it will always work. however, i was on benzaclin for a VERY long time and it worked wonderfully for awhile, and then would just stop working completely. i would try a bunch of other medications and then go back on the benzaclin a few months later, and it would clear up my skin amazingly again... then a few months later it would stop working again! if this is true about skin not becoming immune to benzoyl peroxide, then why does this happen to me?

Benzaclin contains clindacymin, an antibiotic. Your skin may simply be resistant to that, and without it, it's no longer as good.
