Sudden onset...: ...Of acne in an adult can sometimes be a sign of hormonal changes within the body. Medications can do it too. If benzoyl peroxide is not clearing it, you'd best see your dermatologist, who will prescribe something stronger and run some tests to rule out internal hormonal problems.
