What is Benzoyl Peroxide?
Benzoyl Peroxide is a standard topical treatment categorized as an antibacterial and keratolytic agent under the pharmacological family known as peroxides. The primary use for it is in the management of acne. By entering the skin and releasing oxygen, benzoyl peroxide works as a therapeutic agent by reducing the amount of bacteria that cause acne, clearing up pores, and encouraging the removal of dead skin cells. It is frequently sold over the counter in various formulations, such as lotions, gels, creams, and washes. These many forms allow people to select the one that best suits their unique skincare requirements and acne severity.

Can you be allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide?
Benzoyl peroxide allergies are very rare. Benzoyl peroxide allergies can result in hives, breathing difficulties, lips, tongue, or throat swelling, and itching. An allergic response may be a severe medical emergency that must be treated immediately.
How to treat Benzoyl Peroxide rash?
If you suspect an allergic reaction to benzoyl peroxide, cease use and implement home treatments like cold compresses or an oatmeal bath for itching and hives. Nonprescription hydrocortisone cream or antihistamines can provide relief, but if symptoms persist after seven days.

When to stop using Benzoyl Peroxide?
It would help to stop Benzoyl Peroxide when your acne is treated effectively and you no longer experience breakouts. It's also a good idea to discontinue if you develop significant skin irritation or allergic reactions.
Why does Benzoyl Peroxide make acne worse?
Benzoyl Peroxide can initially worsen acne due to a "purging" effect. It helps bring underlying acne lesions to the surface, causing a temporary increase in breakouts. This process is a normal part of the skin's adjustment to treatment and is usually followed by improved skin clarity with continued use.
Who should not use Benzoyl Peroxide?
Benzoyl peroxide is unsuitable if you ever had an allergic reaction to benzoyl peroxide. Also, do not use this medication on damaged or broken skin and sensitive or easily irritated skin.
