You must trust me on this one cause I have been through this. You must stop using benzoyl peroxide for your allergic reaction to go away. The pharmacist told me that this Panoxyl gel would work with slight redness to my skin and I was not surprised that it did not work since everything else I have ever used did not work. By usin this Panoxyl for sensitive skin my face turned red as a tomato, stung a lot burned a lot and after that was over my skin was excessively dry and my pimples were still all over my face! Never trust a pharmacist since it seems like they don't know how to get rid of acne. Acutane works but there are tons of side effects so be careful with it if you want to get rid of your pimples forever.

You should take an antihistamine (loratadine, cetirizine, diphenhydramine) right away. If the reaction is severe you may need an epinephrine injector (EpiPen, Twinject, ).

Sometimes if you stop eating an allergic food for 2 or 3 weeks, you can start eating small amounts of it again without a reaction. You should never do this if the reaction is severe and you should seek the help of a Medical Allergist and not a surgeon Allergist(ENT). They only deal with minor allergies of the nose.

Can hydrogen peroxide cure cancer?

No hydrogen peroxide can not cure cancer. It would be good if it could. It has been tested in a controlled medical test and did not work. The body does not create the same type of arteries, veins, and capillaries in a cancer that it does everywhere else. That makes it hard to get any type of chemical to a cancer. Cancer cells would need a hydrogen peroxide receptor for the chemical to use to enter the cell. It would be hard for hydrogen peroxide to get to the cancer and hard for it to get inside once it got there. The only chemicals that can work against cancer will be poison chemicals that mimic chemicals the cancer cells need.
