More information

  • Usage

    Benzoyl peroxide is a medication used in the treatment of mild acne. Benzoyl peroxide, available as generic benzoyl peroxide or in branded forms, kills Propionibacterium acnes bacteria. Benzoyl peroxide may help reduce the production of oils in skin glands. Benzoyl peroxide is also thought to help inhibit the formation of lesions known as comedones by allowing sebum to drain. Certain combination benzoyl peroxide gels are used for the treatment of acne vulgaris. Some medications, like Aczone, should generally not be used at the same time as benzoyl peroxide unless directed to by one’s medical provider.

  • Benzoyl Peroxide – Side Effects

    Benzoyl peroxide, like similar medications, can lead to side effects when used. Side effects from benzoyl peroxide use include skin redness, dryness, peeling, and irritation. People who have an allergy or hypersensitivity to benzoyl peroxide should not use the medication. Benzoyl peroxide should not be used by people who have a history of regional enteritis, ulcerative colitis, pseudomembranous colitis, or antibiotic-associated colitis. Benzoyl peroxide and alcohol should not be used together. Questions and concerns about side effects related to benzoyl peroxide wash use should be directed to one’s medical provider and pharmacist prior to use.

  • Cost Information

    Benzoyl peroxide combination gels are somewhat expensive, costing as much as $3 per gram at some pharmacies. Different versions of benzoyl peroxide are available which may be cheaper, and benzoyl peroxide coupons may be available online. Also, some insurance plans may cover some or all of the cost of a benzoyl peroxide cream or gel. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.
