Benzoyl peroxide

a. Benzoyl peroxide is first-line therapy for mild acne. It is available over-the-counter. The liquids and creams (Benoxyl) are less irritating and are useful for dry skin. The gel (Benzagel, Persa-Gel) is more irritating but more effective for oily skin. Mild redness and scaling occurs during the first week. It may irritate the skin, bleach the clothes, and inactivate simultaneously applied tretinoin and other anti-acne products.

b. The 2.5% strength is less irritating than higher strengths and equally effective. Apply in the morning and evening after washing [2.5, 510% gel, 5-10% cream or lotion].
