Do You Wash Off Benzoyl Peroxide
Do you wash off benzoyl peroxide and clamydacin gel or leave on for the day then moisturize cuz it turns white when applied.?
Acne meds white film: You should leave on the acne med and apply a moisturizer with SPF 15 or 30. Acne meds like you are using may cause your skin to be very sensitive with exposure to the sun causing irritation or even peeling. It is important to use a facial moisturizer with sunscreen (SPF) protection when using acne meds. If it continues to worsen see your dermatologist or PCP for re-evaluation.
Depends: Some benzoyl peroxide based washes are meant to be washed off. Cream and gel preparations are meant to be left on. The type of benzoyl peroxide dictates whether to leave it on. Keep in mind that it may bleach your clothes or linens, so sleep in a raggedy t-shirt if you are using it at night.

Multiple: Skin specialists recommend face washes based on the condition of the person's skin and what they want to achieve. Using witch hazel will dry out the skin because it has alcohol (not great for the face) and benzoyl peroxide is drying, has some antibacterial action, and is helpful for acne. If your face is dry, you may want a less drying cleanser; if oily, you can try salicylic acid.
Hi I recently used clean And clear face wash. It has benzoyl peroxide 10% and turned my face beat red and itchy anyway to sooth this?
Try cool compresses: And ibuprofen (Motrin/Advil). If the itchiness continues, you can try taking an antihistamine (Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (diphenhydramine) or Claritin or Zyrtec or Allegra). If it blisters or continues to be red and itchy, please see your doctor or a dermatologist. Also, be cautious if taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Zyrtec; they can make you drowsy so you shouldn't drive while on them.
