On benzoyl peroxide for 9 months, lips became red sore itchy, dry & orange scabs three weeks ago. I do not apply on lips (Photo)

I really dont want to come off benzoyl peroxide, went to the doctors they dont know what it is and gave me flucoxocilin, it worked for a week and now its back.

You need to stop the bp and start on another course of antibiotics. The bp has made your skin raw and susceptible to infection. There are other treatments for acne that might be better for you.
