The exact method of action of benzoyl peroxide in acne vulgaris is not known. Benzoyl peroxide is an antibacterial agent with demonstrated activity against Propionibacterium acnes.
This action combined with the mild keratolytic effect of benzoyl peroxide is believed to be responsible for its usefulness in acne.
Little is known about the percutaneous penetration, metabolism and excretion of benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide is absorbed by the skin where it is metabolized
to benzoic acid and excreted as benzoate in the urine. There is no evidence of systemic toxicity caused by benzoyl peroxide in humans. INDICATIONS AND USAGE

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis and Impairment of Fertility
Studies employing a strain of mice that are highly susceptible to developing cancer suggest that benzoyl peroxide acts as a tumor promoter. The clinical significance
of these findings to humans is not known. Benzoyl peroxide has not been found to be mutagenic (Ames test) and there are no published data indicating that it impairs
fertility. Pregnancy: Category C
Animal reproductive studies have not been conducted with benzoyl peroxide. It is also not known whether benzoyl peroxide can cause fetal harm when administered
to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Benzoyl peroxide should be used by a pregnant woman only if clearly needed. There are no available data
on the effect of benzoyl peroxide on the later growth, development and functional maturation of the unborn child. Nursing Mothers
It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when benzoyl peroxide is
administered to a nursing woman. Pediatric Use
Safety and effectiveness in children below the age of 12 have not been established. ADVERST REACTIONS
Allergic contact dermatitis and dryness have been reported with topical benzoyl peroxide therapy. If excessive scaling, erythema or edema occurs, the use of Benzoyl
Peroxide 5 Wash should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. To hasten resolution of adverse effects, cool compresses may be used. After reaction
clears, a reduced dosage schedule may often be resumed if the reaction is judged not to be due to allergenicity. DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Shake well before using. It is recommended that therapy be initiated with Benzoyl Peroxide 5% Wash, washing the affected areas once a day during the first week,
and twice a day thereafter as tolerated. Wet skin areas to be treated; apply Benzoyl Peroxide Wash, work to a full lather, rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Frequency of
