  1. It's hard to say with the information you've given here. Did you do anything different 2 weeks ago that might have caused these breakouts? Lifestyle or diet changes, anything like that? That said, a good acne-fighting face wash should help a lot. I prefer one with salicylic acid, but you can also try 2.5% salicylic acid. And yes, sometimes things get worse before they get better with new products. However, you shouldn't need to use a product longer than a month or so before you see some
  2. They've done studies comparing different percentages of BP. Surprisingly enough, not only is 2.5% gentler on your skin, but it's actually more effective at controlling acne: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2948929 So if your 10% product is working for you, great, keep it up. But if you start seeing some dryness, redness, or flakiness, maybe try 2.5% instead.
