Several years ago I started using BP to get rid of acne I started getting on my cheeks and nose. I didn't know anything about "the regimen" or acne.com for that matter, but I only used BP as a treatment and not really as a preventative. It helped to clear up my skin and as my skin got better, I stopped using it and the acne never did return in those areas (I have different trouble zones now!).

I should point out that my acne was fairly mild and that particular breakout was unusual for me and had only been going on for a matter of weeks before I started using BP, so maybe it would have cleared up eventually on its own anyway.

I know for some people acne jus trandomly goes away. So they try going off any treatment and they stay clear, for some people the acne comes back right away, for some it takes a few weeks or months. I guess it is different for everybody.

- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%

Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%

Has anyone had an allergic reaction to the benzoyl peroxide?

I used for 5 months with great success only to suddenly have allergic reaction with any amount of bp. My eyes get red, wrinkle, itchy and puffy (very) and neck itchy and red. I've had to take steroids to relieve the symptoms. Trying to understand what's going on. If anyone has had similar reaction would love to hear about it.
