Benzoyl Peroxide is a chemical with a wide range of uses. As a medication it's predominantly used as a topical treatment for mild to moderate acne. It works by destroying acne-causing bacteria and drying out the skin, causing it to peel and be replaced with new, blemish-free skin.

A prescription is not needed to buy Benzoyl Peroxide in low doses, and it is widely found in cosmetics as well as some tooth whitening methods. In higher doses, though---usually 4% and up---a prescription is needed to buy Benzoyl Peroxide in most locations.

Effects of this product on unborn babies, nursing infants, and children below age 12 are unknown. It should generally be avoided if pregnant or breastfeeding, and parents should not buy Benzoyl Peroxide for use on young children without explicit doctor approval.

Treating Acne

Patients who buy Benzoyl Peroxide to treat acne use a topical solution spread directly on the affected area. Application ranges from once to twice per day, depending on patient response and sensitivity.

Most patients find 4% to 5% to be sufficient for moderate acne, though some people do use 8% solutions. It is rare that higher strengths are utilized; adding another acne treatment typically has better effects.

Improvements may start to be visible after 3 weeks of use, but it may take a week or two longer. It takes around 8 to 12 weeks for maximum benefit to be seen. Patients buy Benzoyl Peroxide because it is effective, but it does take some patience for good results; barring severe side effects, patients are encouraged to stick with it for 12 weeks.

Treatment is usually:

  • Gently wash and dry the affected area.
  • Apply a small amount of Benzoyl Peroxide to the affected area.
  • If applying once per day most patients prefer to do it before bed; if twice per day, morning and evening.
  • Continue treatment for up to 12 weeks if needed.
  • If no significant improvements are seen after twelve weeks alternative treatments should be considered.

Treatment should not extend past 12 weeks without doctor approval if using a prescription Benzoyl Peroxide product. If improvements are significant around 12 weeks but acne persists, a doctor may advise that treatment extend a bit longer. If results are not significant, alternative products should be considered.

Tips & Tricks

To help ensure treatment is as smooth and hassle-free as possible, here are some tips from real-world users:

  • If the medication hasn't been used before, apply a small dab on the skin to ensure no extreme sensitivity or allergic reaction develops.
  • Start treatment by applying the medication just once per day for several days to prevent excessive skin drying.
  • If skin becomes very dry, rough, flaky, or starts to peel---all normal side effects---applying a moisturizer several times per day will help. A moisturizer can be applied moments before applying Benzoyl Peroxide.
  • Do not apply Benzoyl Peroxide more frequently or in greater quantity than recommended. It will not help resolve acne any quicker, and may worsen side effects.
  • New breakouts can happen several times during the course of treatment as lesions are surfaced. This is normal during the first few weeks.
  • After about one month of treatment drying skin, peeling, breakouts, and similar effects will begin to diminish.
  • If acne returns some months or years after treatment ends, treatment can always be repeated.

Those who buy Benzoyl Peroxide should be aware that it can cause skin to become more photosensitive. Use caution with regard to sun exposure or tanning beds until effects are known.

Potential Side Effects

Side effects associated with Benzoyl Peroxide are usually mild, but most patients will experience at least a few of them. All mild side effects affect the application site, and should largely stop occurring after the first few weeks of treatment:

  • Mild tingling or burning when applied
  • Reddening of skin
  • Itching
  • Very dry skin
  • Rough, flaky, or peeling skin
  • Tenderness or other mild irritation

As long as the above are mild they're normal side effects, and most will diminish significantly as treatment continues. There is no cause for concern unless severe or persistant past the first few weeks of treatment.
