Benzoyl Peroxide

I have a question, and that is as the title and description state, I am allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide. I break out in hives all over my face, it's really itchy and red. Does anyone know any other good treatment, similar to say proactive, that doesn't contain that, but isn't a waste of money? Thanks!

that's a tough situation Nikki.

For those that are allergic to bp, there is Salicylic acid products, and tea-tree oil, and prescription medications like Retin-A and other retinoids, antibiotics, accutane, etc.

You may need to see a derm to find something effective for you, since you are allergic to benzoyl peroxide.

good luck.
