Well its obvious that proactiv has been working to prevent these cystic breakouts from forming. The BP acts as a treatment, however also as a preventive method. As you have stopped using BP, new breakouts have been able to form without any resistance. it is known that when stopping BP cold turkey, generally causes huge breakouts, and it is new recommended to just stop. However try not to stress out about it, and return to your routine asap, and you should be on track again. If you can't at least try to avoid irritation in the mean time. All the best.

Well it's obvious that your skin is dependent on the benzoyl peroxide that is included in proactiv - it has essentially being preventing the breakout that you have now suffered.
Rather than using proactiv, I recommend using the acne.org regimen. Since your face is accustomed to BP, it shouldn't take you long to adjust and the BP concentration is lower at 2.5% which is said to be much more effective than higher concentrations.
