Am I Allergic To Benzoyl Peroxide?allergic

I've been on the Regimen for just a week. However, yesterday and today, I started having itching rashes all over my body, but my face remains clear and looks better and better each day.
I think it shouldn't be benzoyl peroxide, since my face looks awesome. It might be something I ate, but I'm not sure.

I'm looking everywhere but can't find a lot of alternatives to Dan's BP.

We'll see how it goes the next couple days when I use Neutrogena On the Spot as a substitution. If I'm really allergic to BP, then this whole regimen thing wouldn't work anyway

This morning, I put nothing on my face, and now I don't have itchy skin anymore.
After so much preparations and readings and buying products and expectations, just to find that I'm allergic to bp. ugh.
What do I do now? I've been using Salicylic Acid peel before the Regimen, and it has helped a lot but has never prevented pimples from forming. I'm thinking about ordering Paula's Choice 2% BHA and couple it with the peel. Maybe that'll help...

No regimen is one-size-fits-all. You are unique and so is your skin.
Black soap - Lumiplexion Salicylic Acid ~ Lumiplexion SPF 30 ~ Lumiplexion moisturizer
Black soap ~ Lumiplexion Glycolic Acid 12% (3-4x week) ~ Lumiplexion Hydroquinone 1-2x week
Lumiplexion enzyme mask / sulfur mask / moisturizing mask 1-2 week as needed

Thanks for all your help. I tried Neutrogena's BP again last night, and I had allergic reaction again today, even worse. I went to CVS pharmarcy and bought some allergy pills and creams. They helped tremendously, and I'm ok again now. I think I might try BP some time after I'm completely without allergy.
Currently I just bought some sample Salicylic acid gels from Paula's Choice. Once I receive them, I'll know how I fare with SA.
I also bought some Aloe Vera Gel. What do you guys think about it?
I also have some Manuka Honey. I might start using honey masks while waiting for the SA.
The people at CVS also told me to see a doctor if my condition doesn't get better in a few days.
If I get allergy again even without the BP treatment, I'll know it's something else.

I've recently had a similar problem. I had used the Clinque 3 step system which had benzyol peroxide and I had a very bad allergic reaction to it. My face was swollen around my nose and I got hives all around my face. I thought it may have been from soemthing else, but I recently started using the regimen and not even within a day of using it I had the same reaction but I still saw major improvemnt in my acne.
I'm just wondering if the regimin works just as effectively without the BP treatment and what you used as an alternative to that product that is just as effective.

Any updates on your progress? I've been using the regimen for around two weeks and woke up to discover a red, blotchy rash on my neck, despite using the products only on my face and chest. This is rather unpleasant, since it has been clearing my moderate acne very well. I would rather the rash than the acne, but I suppose there's the niggling issue of an allergic reaction becoming potentially fatal. How long had you used the products after you discovered the initial reaction? From some sources it suggests an allergy can only worsen, have some found relief despite continued use?
All the best
