Millions of people struggle with acne problems on a daily basis, so they turn to Clearasil to get some help. Despite the power and popularity of the formula, you should always know exactly what any treatment does, what its ingredients are and if it can have any side effects before you take it.

Acne Treatment

The main effect of any Clearasil product is that it clears up acne; hence the name. There are different types of formulas in the Clearasil line; however, they all work with the same basic premise. Benzoyl peroxide, which is an ingredient in other acne treatments, helps to dry up the skin, thereby killing off acne.

Mild Effects

Even if you experience a mild effect, you should have it checked out by a doctor to ensure that it does not develop into something worse. After putting on the product, your skin might sting a bit or become somewhat red or dry. Continued redness, scaliness and irritation might occur, in which case you absolutely must seek medical attention.

Serious Effects

Some of the effects of Clearasil can be quite serious, so you should always consult a doctor before using any new type of medication or ointment. You might have a severe skin reaction, such as hives, dryness or peeling. Another potential side effect is a severe allergic reaction, which can cause hives, closing of the throat, swelling of regions of the face and mouth or shortness of breath. You must go to an emergency room immediately if these symptoms occur.
