I'm no doctor, so you may still be having an allergic reaction, but certainly the symptoms you describe are quite normal for some people. Take advice from the above posters and reduce the amount of BP you're using. But you are only using a very small amount right as your in your first week?.
After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that
I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

hmm definately sounds like an allergic reaction to me.. please be very cautious! but if you say that you did not use BP and the puffing went down. id say the moisturizer and cleanser are good you are more than likely allergic to BP ive read many forums about people being allergic to BP that sucks im sorry to hear that if you are.. but i would definately go to doctors care and ask the doc about it. you can walk in with 20 bucks and get checked up by the doc no problem. he might even prescribe you something to use to substitute the BP.. although im not sure how well anything he prescribes will work in conjuction with the regimen. i got prescribed finacea and ive read that its a great substitue for people who are allergic to BP its an azeliac acid 15% usually used for rosacea but it also works with acne and post redmarks.
GOOD LUCK! i hope you get better!
GOAL to CLEAR skin set..
