In brief: Acne

Erythromycin gel can be drying and so can benzoyl peroxide.
So i would be careful mixing them unless your skin can take it. Try it in asmall area first. U should talk to a dermatologist though. Acne can play havoc in a young person's social life! the acne itself can be bad but the scars it leaves behind can be harder!
