In brief: Benzyl/salicylic aci

One has to try benzyl proxide low strength like 2.
5% and if tolerated can be increased to 5%., not cream but wash .But if not tolerated than you can try 1%salicylic acid and can be increased to 2% if tolerated. You have to try what your skin can tolearate, it varies from perso0n to person.If in doubt, consult your md/dermatologist.
