1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thanks for the question

Benzoyl peroxide is an effective ingredient for treating reddish and suppurating zits. Besides being able to reduce excess oil and remove dead cells, Benzoyl peroxide can also kill acne-causing bacteria.

Benzoyl peroxide is quite safe and can be used by pregnant women. Benzoyl peroxide can cause dryness and skin irritation when first used. This is a normal reaction. If you have dry or sensitive skin types may not be recommended to use Benzoyl peroxide because it is very dry skin so that it can cause severe irritation.

If you are just using Benzoyl peroxide, you should use it once a day and then proceed with the use of a moisturizer and sunscreen if going outdoors. Then the usage can be increased gradually to twice a day. Use also begins with a low concentration. Avoid concomitant use with retinoids to avoid more severe irritation.

Consult a dermatologist if you have doubts or severe side effects occur.

That's all, hope you can help

Wassalam, Dr. Farah
