I Think I'm Allergic To Bp After 3 Years Or Regimen, What Now?

5 posts in this topic

Just like the title says, I've used the regimen with fantastic (but not perfect) results for around 3 years and as of the last month or so my neck and eye lids have become dry, flaky, and extremely irritated after using BP. If I use a very light amount and load up on benadryl I can somewhat tolerate it but its much less effective and I'm breaking out. Whats next? I've tried using salicylic acid based treatments before with pretty poor results.

I don't have anything to suggest, just wanted to hop in here and say :hugs:. This sort of thing really sucks.

thank you. I'm really confused why no one else has experienced this.

to further the madness, If I only use BP on my forehead I can pretty much be symptom free, but anywhere on my cheeks or neck will set off the fireworks. Anyone?

You may be applying too much to your neck and cheeks or it's a formulation flaw. The latter often happens with OTC products, where the BP crystals are released and deposited unevenly on the skin, causing irritation in certain spots. Most likely it's both. Have you been using the same BP product for a while? If so, are you using it much past its expiration date?
