2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide. For the face to treat acne

Quinoderm is the product that you will able to purchase from any pharmacy - comes in two strengths 5% or 10% Benzoyl Peroxide

2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide. For the face to treat acne



For the 2.5% strength ask the pharmacy for PanOxyl aquagel

is it for a kid, I had acne for 6 years big welts, I hated going out, used loads of different types no use, went to see a specialist he put me on a drug called roacutaine, my spots and acne were gone in 3 weeks!
I tell anyone suffering like I did to get this drug.

I think you'll struggle to get 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide in any form .Most strengths of Panoxyl have been discontinued,I have seen 10% floating about. The only prep I know that has 2.5% is EPIDUO GEL which is a prescription only item as it also has something called adapalene in it. You can buy 5% Benzoyl Peroxide its called ACNECIDE GEL. Hope this helps.

Do you know where to buy quinoderm from? It's not available in the uk anymore

I didn't realise it had been discontinued, I was just looking at the medications book I have (was last updated 2013) - best to ask your local pharmacy, they will be able to tell you if they would be able to order you in any alternatives

its something to do with a european law about a certain ingredient which is not allowed as i was told by a pharmacist. i think the same happened to panoxyl. you struggle to get quinderm from anywhere due to the red tape at the moment

Can Benzoyl Peroxide be prescribed by a GP?


Yes also can be purchased over the counter at chemist

I used to use Quinoderm all the time, it was about the only thing that worked for me. Boots used to stock it but it looks like they don't now, have you looked online?
