If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for something that can & manage till it self-cures. Best wishes ...Read more

Creams, not gels: The treatment would depend on the severity of the acne. Gels are more drying than creams, and more likely to cause irritation.

It may work fine by then and you won't need more. If you don't improve with it, I would see a doc then, and see if an antibiotic for acne would be a better next step than increasing the salicylic acid. ...Read more
