Benzoyl peroxide products are commonly employed for the treatment of mild to moderate acne. In the context of acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide operates by diminishing the population of acne-causing bacteria and inducing dryness and peeling of the skin. In the case of rosacea, benzoyl peroxide can assist in alleviating symptoms like facial pimples and bumps, contributing to a reduction in these manifestations.

Uses and Dosage

Benzoyl peroxide products should be applied once or twice daily to the affected area, or as instructed by your doctor. Begin with one daily application and, if necessary, increase to twice daily.

This medication is designed for external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes, nostrils, lips, mouth, or broken skin.

Various factors, including body weight, other medical conditions, and concurrent medications, can influence the required dosage. If your doctor suggests a different dose than the ones listed, do not alter your usage without consulting them.

Precise adherence to your doctor’s instructions is crucial. If you miss an application, apply the medication at the earliest opportunity. If the next application is near, skip the missed dose and resume your regular schedule. Do not exceed the prescribed frequency.

Store this medication at room temperature and keep it out of children’s reach.
