Benzoyl Peroxide : Short term use of BP may be cosmetically beneficial, but read this: http://www.Skintactix.Com/benzoyl_peroxide_skin_damage.Htm. The long term use of BP has been linked to premature aging of the skin as well as skin cancer, so i would use it cautiously, and only under the care of a dermatologist!

Blood pressure: Blood pressure can elevate for many reasons, including anxiety. Some people find that this happens especially in doctors' offices -- to the point that there is a term for it: "white coat hypertension." that said, you'll need to monitor your BP over several readings to see how you fare. I'm also wondering about the oxycodone you're taking. Perhaps you need help with that ; anxiety too?

A 27-year-old female asked about a 32-year-old female:

My dad is 57, he said that he feels hot but he doesn't have any other symptoms. His BP and vitals are normal. He also had 2 cups of tea.What's wrong?

Can't say: Just feeling hot is not diagnostic of any specific illness. You say his BP and vitals are normal (good job!), but have you checked his temperature? Does he have any evidence of infection? (cough, rash, sores, pus, pain anywhere?).

Incorrect: That's a spurious reading most likely. True causes are severe (really severe) aortic regurgitation and advanced atherosclerosis. Those are not sporadic so if this is an isolated or infrequent reading, your cuff or technique is/are the culprit (s).

Hypertension: Yes. That is a very elevated blood pressure and it warrants urgent evaluation. If it is chronic you need to have your primary care doctor work with you to improve your blood pressure control as long-term hypertension can lead to a myriad of medical problems. Additionally, extremely elevated blood pressure can be dangerous and should be treated quickly.
