It sounds like you're using the AHA+ a little early in the regimen and perhaps it may be a good idea to stop using it until you are using the full amount of BP without experiencing any ill effects, but thats up to you.
When I first started on the regimen, I had an awful time in the first 5-9 weeks with incredibly dry, red and burning skin added to awful 'worse than ever' breakouts. But once i got through that period it all came good. But I made sure that i continued to up the dose of BP until I was using the full two pumps night and day.
Give the regimen time to work for you. It may take a good many months before you are clear, but you wont know if it will work for you until you are using the full dose that Dan recommends and you are following exactly.
Good luck with it all, like I said it sounds like you are giving it a good shot. Keep us informed with your progress.
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.
