Been using BP for 5 weeks and not sure if I am seeing any results yet. Also I am worried because I haven’t felt much of the irritation,skin peeling and dryness. I have felt irritated once or twice in certain spots but that’s it
It’s 5% BP and I apply a pea size amount every night to my face. I started moisturising in the day because apparently BP has aging side effects.
Not sure I feel like I need some guidance really want to clear my skin.
I’m also using gentle aloe Vera face wash,drinking enough water, and have sugar in moderation
Did nothing for me, I think it's a quack remedy designed to make money for drug companies and Boots. If you have persistent acne that causes distress I would hound the GP for some help.

Thanks I will probably ask my gp when I next see them,
GP was the one who prescribed me BP. My acne is mild but I have never had clear skin, my acne does affect my confidence
Go back and tell them it's not doing the trick. I guess it's reasonable that they want to work through the options, from the most gentle upwards. The problem, which I experienced, was this can take years all the while you suffer angst and cause skin damage by prodding at spots. Avoid this by the way as I think it can do more damage than the acne. Also get an independent view on how unsightly you acne is. It seems quite mild from what you say and perhaps isn't as big a deal as you think.
