An area of the right side of my face started to get really dry and slightly wrinkled shortly after I started using 'duac gel' for acne. At first, I thought it may be temporary but it's been over 9 months since I last used it and the wrinkles persist, along with the dryness to a lesser extent.

I'm sure it was the benzoyl peroxide in the duac, as other people have reported the same problems in the use of BP.

Nothing works. Moisturizers, oilve oil, nothing. I'm worried this may be permanent damage.

This is the only wrinkled/dry area, and the rest of my face is fine. I am 19 years old.

Any help appreciated.
