I have acne (only mild)I got some benzoyl proxide 10% and it just drys out my skin. Need an alterntive that works fast that leaves blemish free skin?

Benzoyl Peroxide: Most acne products tend to be drying. I generally recommend applying an oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen after use, especially during the day.

Insect bite reaction: Gently cleanse with soap and water. Cool ice or compresses. Over the counter anti-itch topical creams: benadryl, (diphenhydramine) caladryl, 1% Hydrocortisone can improve the itchiness.

Monitor response: Salicylic acid based face wash and benzoyl peroxide are both routinely used in the management of acne. It can take 4-6 weeks to assess how the skin is responding to the treatment. If after 2 months of daily use this doesn't improve the acne, follow up with PCP to consider other treatment options. ...Read more
