Allergy/reaction to Benzoyl Peroxide?

Anyone had any experience of this?

It's in Quinoderm and, apparently, in Duac too hmm

I put a tiny bit of Duac on my chin on Sunday evening and today I want to rip the skin off my face! It's itchy and red and it's stinging and I'm bloody miserable.

I knew Benzoyl Peroxide was in Quinoderm as I had a similar reaction to that. Thought I'd try a bit of dd's duac not realising it is in that too.

I'm moisturizing it and using cold compresses but nothing is helping sad
