Is your acne treatment bleaching your towels or clothes? | DermBytes

Benzoyl peroxide molecule picture above. Benzoyl peroxide is a common ingredient in acne treatment.

In high school, I had friends who used hydrogen peroxide to bleach/highlight their hair. Well, your acne treatment may contain benzoyl peroxide — a common ingredient found in acne washes, gels, lotions and creams. While it can be quite effective for acne, it can also be a nuisance in that it can bleach your clothes.

You may notice towels, pillowcases and clothing getting bleached.

Here are some tips:

– Use white towels, pillowcases and clothing or ones that you don’t care about getting bleached.

– Wait for the medication to dry before exposing it to clothing you don’t want to get messed up.

– If you sweat after applying your benzoyl peroxide treatment, wipe the sweat away so it doesn’t drip onto your clothes.
