As the subject says, even after a week of using the treatment, I still feel the burn.

I started the regimen last Wednesday and it's Wednesday today(S.Korea). So It's exactly a week today.

I was told to increase the dosage from the second week. But the treatment still burns my face.

Flakeness and dryness have been subdued , so I can wear make up fine, but I am super worried about that burning and stinging feeling I will get if I increase the dosage.


Also, I still get a couple of acnes here and there but it's not inflammatory acne. They are hardened sebum underneath the skin.

Should I pop them? It's not inflammatory so I don't think the treatment will help get rid of it. I think it has to be squeezed out to be gone.  What do you think? and what should I do?  Please help me!

Thats totally normal. Don't up the dosage until you get completely used to what you are using now. If whatever you are using now is burning your face, cut back on it. Don't worry about upping the dosage every week, yes, it'll take longer for you to get clear, but it will save you the agony and embarrassment of having a red face. 


Don't pop anything, just ignore it. I know its embarrassing having a huge cyst turn into a white head...happens to me all the time...but you should not touch it at all. Let it open on its own or when you are in the shower. It can get infected if you try and touch it and turn worse.

It took 9 weeks for the burning to stop for me.  I don't EVER want to go through that again.  Good luck!

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.
