I've recently started on the regimen and all was going good until I got to day 4 when I was a bit over generous with the BP (Because I thought my skin was tolerating it well!) and put a tiny bit more than i think of should of so early on. I dont think that I am allergic as I have used it no problems before, do you think I should just apply a little less and grin and bear the redness for the next few days? I've included a photo.

Many thanks

If the redness wasn't there before, it seems that the logical thing to do is to go back to your previous amount of BP. I've found that it takes 7 days for my skin to adjust when increasing the BP amount.
