In brief: Salicylic acid /BPO

Salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are the main active ingredients in most of the over the counter acne medications.
You choose what strength you want for each, up to 3% for sa and up to 10% for bpo. Sometimes the combination of both can help. If you are no better within 6-8 weeks, call your doctor for help. Use lower percentages for sensitive skin.
