I use tretinoin and benzoyl peroxide for adult acne but they are drying out my skin. Should i replace benzoyl with topical erythromycin?

In brief: Add moisiturizer

I would not get rid of the benzoyl peroxide - that is really a base staple to acne treatment.
Instead, i would focus more on adding moisturizers to your regimen at least twice a day. Use unscented ones and ones with a sunscreen built in to provide extra protection.

No continue but use gentle exfoliation and non comedogenic moisturizer.
