Is it safe to use dermovate soap, benzyl peroxide and suflur masks in combination to treat acne ?

Good afternoon, I have moderate to severe acne and I have been using dermovate soap and using benzyl peroxide and putting sulfur mask on the new pimples overnight. I wanted to know if that was a safe combination of products to be using? It seems to be working so far, my acne appears to be leaving on one side of my face .

hello,
tretment of acne is by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection, reducing the inflammation or doing all four. so wash your face with a face wash. drink lot of water . take more fruits. regular exercise. the medication now you are taking is ok for mild acne. but consult a dermatologist and take medications under his guidance. benzoyl peroxide and antibiotic combination medications are available, like combinations of benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin (Benzaclin), which is helpful. consult a dr. about it. take care
