Don`t know if this is any help but below is a link to a website that details what to expect when commencing treatment using a product with BP in.

Also thanks a lot for the link, it's really useful. It sounds like I'm in the week 2-3 stage symptoms wise, but it's still only day two for me. My doctor was keen to emphasize that it'd take time to work, and it says on the leaflet that it takes four weeks to start seeing an improvement usually. I was thinking that it was all in my head until I saw a long suffering friend, who asked what I'd been using for my spots, but also if I was sun burnt (such a tactful person haha).
We'll see how it goes. I'm glad to read that it doesn't stay this red and burny forever (if you're not allergic). I was slightly concerned that my skin would always react to it like this. I can deal with some dryness and flaking, but I had image of me walking around in two months time with my 'sunburn'.

Sounds as though you are already experiencing positive results - just a case of seeing out the side effects and dealing with any potential IB.
Hope it works out for you!

The redness is not that bad and will soon fade once your skin gets used to the BP.

Did you experience burning the moment you put the BP on your face? I'm experiencing it after I apply my moisturizer afterwards..
