Precautions: Do not use if you have very sensitive skin or are sensitive to benzoyl peroxide. For external use only. When using this product do not use this product more than three times per day. Skin irritation and dryness are more likely to occur if you use another topical acne medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use a sunscreen. Avoid contact with the eyes, lips, and mouth. Avoid contact with hair and dyed fabrics, which may be bleached by this product. Skin irritation may occur, characterized by redness, burning, itching, peeling, or possibly swelling. Irritation may be reduced by using the product less frequently or in a lower concentration. Stop use and ask a doctor if irritation becomes severe. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

Sensitivity Test for a New User: Apply product sparingly to one or two small affected areas during the first 3 days. If no discomfort occurs, follow the directions stated below.

Sensitivity Test: Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying this product. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer and rinse thoroughly one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.

        Comments about Proactiv Emergency Blemish Relief:

        Works well. I'm an acne-prone adult and use this as soon as I can tell a blemish is developing. I use it after my moisturizer at night and in the morning, even under my makeup, too.

        By far the best medication I've used to rid pimples. By the next day, the redness and swelling have significantly been reduced. This product works fast.

        Healed little random pimples quickly! First it reduced their redness, then they disappear faster than they normally do.

        I bought this for my teenage niece who has had acne for years now. She LOVES it. She applies it as directed and told me she woke up the next morning and her acne was all but gone.

            I am 18 with oily, acne-prone skin with most of my hormonal acne being concentrated to the lower half of my face. I bought this to treat my extra annoying pimples that surface around that time of the month. I'd heard great things about ProActiv so I was expecting a lot but I saw absolutely no improvement. I gave this two stars only because it didn't make my skin any worse.

            I was having an issue with a blemish on the side of my nose--using this product externally was not helping. I chose to place a small amount on a QTip and then apply to the area inside the nare and it has worked the redness and enlargement has reduced w/o any issue with the inside of my nare.

            Good but drying

            Comments about Proactiv Emergency Blemish Relief:

            It's a great thing if you want to get rid of an annoying pimple but it dried out my skin way too much and that was when I only put it on at night! I would recommend going into the store and asking someone there what they recommend because there are a lot of other products for spot treatment that work better.
