In brief: A Good Choice

Benzoyl peroxide 10 percent combined with a topical retinoids is superb for mild to moderate acne.
In sensitive individuals, 2.5% or 5% concentrations are preferred.

In brief: May help

The benzoyl peroxide over-the-counter stuff may help.
If it is not sufficient, i start folks on a cheap prescription Clindamycin topical preparation with or without a retinoic acid derivative, which works better; there's stronger stuff aswell. Even in our dysfunctional health care system, no youngster should have to suffer with acne -- life's hard enough without. Good luck.

In brief: Works

It does dry up pimples but is not effective for blackheads or whiteheads.
You will often do just as well with a lower strength 2 and half to 4 per cent without the drying or irritation.
