Can I use both Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic acid?
I don't have severe acne but I have clogged pores allover my face, they just stay there for a long time, never go away! Some of
them are blackheads, but some of them don't have color and I can simply pull them out.

I have tried many of those Retin-A products, but my skin became very uncomfortable, red and crack.

I just start using benzoyl peroxide 2.5% in the morning and Salicylic acid 2% pads at night, can this help reducing the formation of clogged pores?

Thanx!

Sure, you can use benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid together.

Among prescription medications, you can use other forms of Retin-A which aren't irritating, or else other medications like adapalene (sold as Differin).

Finally, pore cleansing by having facials can be helpful for clogged pores too.

Best.

P.S.  I hope your acne are not as complicated as your moniker!
