"benzac" problems

hey everyone,

in australia here, i got prescribed 'benzac' which is a substitute for benzoyl peroxide over in the states. On the label though, it dosnt say what percentage it is :think: . Its been my first week and my skin burns burns burns everytime i put it on, and my acne could possibly be worse, im not sure. I have a feeling that it my be the dreaded 5 or 10% bp. Can anyone who may be using 'benzac' help me out on this becuase my derm is a fool.

Actually benzac is benzoyl peroxide. I find it weird that you dont know the percentage because its clearly stated on the tubes. Did he like give it to you in a transferred container or in the original tube? Also, Benzac 2.5% never burns for me...perhaps you're right and ures is not 2.5... Solution?..call up your doc and confirm. If it is the 2.5% then its probably because your skin is adjusting to it. That happens during the first few weeks. But watch closely for any swelling or itching.
