Benzac AC Dosage
Carefully put some of the Benzac AC on the parts of the skin where acne appears. It is important to keep it away from the mouth and eyes. You should also avoid broken skin as there can be irritation caused if it is touched by the substance and needs to be quickly washed.
Typically this medication is applied once to twice daily
As this is a peroxide there is a risk that if it touches hair or and clothes or towels then there may be bleaching. When cleansers are being used the skin should be damp and the cleanser is rubbed in for around 30 seconds. Rinse well and pat dry – at no stage should the skin be rubbed. You will have been given a specific dosage and should not exceed that.
There is a risk that there will be side effects and you should check your skin carefully to make sure there is no damage. You may suffer from:
- Painful skin as a result of blistering, itching or swelling
- A rash
If any of the above occurs, then you will need to get in touch with a doctor. The same applies if you feel the symptoms are getting worse. Often you will be advised to use a smaller amount of product and your doctor should advise you of the amount to use. Your doctor will only advise you to stop if they think that the risks are outweighing the benefits.
Before you are told to use Benzac AC, you should make sure that your doctor knows all about your medical history especially if you think you may be allergic to it or one of the components. They will need to know if you have allergies to perfume – there may some in the product.
It is important to be aware of the following:
- Stay out of the sun when you can
- Limit the time spent on sunbeds
- Wear clothes that cover the skin as much as possible and report any sunburn suffered
