    are there any OTC benz peroxide products that are strong enough (5%) or am i stuck with just oxy or clearisil or something? thanks.

    Stronger BP doesn't help, it just irritates more. 5% is probably fine, but for most people, 2.5 works the same. And yeah, there are lots of them available.

    I had to get a prescription to get 5%, which is ridiculous because the only thing they had on the shelf was 10% or above. I guess you could thin out the 10% or something, but I don't understand why a pharmacist can't sell me the 5%.

    That's weird; I think they only had 5% OTC at my pharmacy.

    Well Oxy 10 and the other way-too-high-power ones are 10%. They probably have higher than that too.

    Incidentally, (and I may have read this here) the tube of catalyst they give you with Bondo auto body filler is like 100% BPO.

    I use to have pretty bad acne on my back especially and not so bad on my face - the occasional breakout every couple of weeks. My skin especially on my back is completely clear and face is clear except for my neck where shaving brings out spots. I cut out all dairy and wheat and they vanished. I think has to more with dairy. I had some dairy the other week and for the next week i had some spots appear on my face. I also drink a lot of bone broth, which does wonder for my skin. It is highly anti inflammatory and spots are often a sign of inflammation somewhere in the body.

    You know, the best way to have perfect skin is to eat healthily. And by healthily I mean no seafood (except fish), no gluten, no dairy, not too much sodium, no caffeine (green tea is OK), no instant stuff (noodles, soup, etc.) and no sweets / sugar. AND you have to take supplements and stuff to keep your skin healthy. No bangs so you'll avoid forehead pimples. I should know because I do it. I know, it's a pain but it works and what you want is something that works, right? Try it for about 2 weeks and then you'll see the difference! You won't even have to use any skin products!!

    PS. AND NO CHEATING!!!
