Get real Rx: This is a "pop" treatment that's all over the internet and won't work. If topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. This is the 21st century and you deserve something better than a magic folk remedy. Best wishes.

Myths: Nope. This is a false myth without any truth to it. Lemons are no help with acne.
