Benzaclin??

Question: I have been using benzaclin (the 50g jar) prescribed by my doctor for about two months now. I have noticed that I get a real burning/stinging sensation around my jawline and my face is peeling really bad. I think that my face cannot handle the amount of benzoyl peroxide that this jar contains(50mg). My question is if you know of anything else OTC I can use that contains Benzoyl Peroxide but in a slightly lower mg? I think it is overall clearing my face I just feel it may be to strong. I have used salicylic acid medication before and it is just not strong enough for my face so I wanna stick with the BP. Please let me know if you can be of any help! Thank you
Answer:

DermStore carries numerous products containing benzoyl peroxide that I think would help to address your skin issues. Consider Glytone Acne Treatment Gel or Jan Marini Skin Research Benzoyl Peroxide 5%. Please let me know if you would like further suggestions. Best skin care wishes.
