In brief: Category C

Benzoyl peroxide is a pregnancy category c drug, which basically means that someone was able to produce birth defects in lab animals using it, probably in preposterously high doses and something more than putting in the mother mouse's face.
While i don't believe there's any danger to you, you'd do well not to use it simply o keep yourself from worrying or blaming the medicine if something happens.
