In Topic: Breakout When Using New Bp Product?

25 March 2013 - 08:36 PM

For a little less than a week now I've been using Neutrogena's 2.5% spot treatment - I dab a little on spots in the morning, and at night I spread it over my problem areas. I'm really happy with what I'm seeing so far. No redness, dryness, irritation, or peeling of any kind. It just feels tight after it dries (the night application) so I'm generous with my moisturizer. And I have super super sensitive skin. So maybe this product will work better than a 10%, it could be irritating your skin like crazy.

I started back on the regimen today. Hopefully it gets my skin under control. My new plan is to do the regimen only, be super gentle and "by the books" for a while using something that has worked in the past (or at least got my acne to about 80-90% better) versus continue on this rollercoaster of the unknown. It seems that the weekly chem peels are too harsh while using the benzoyl peroxide, so hopefully after using the BP for a while I will be clear and then slowly ease back the amount of BP I use and begin to do chemical peels again. Maybe I can get my body in a better place and fix my hormones by then, although I have no idea how I would do that.

 

Best of luck. Dan's BP worked amazingly for me for a couple years, then my face decided to get extremely sensitive to BP this past fall. Sigh

Red lumps all over my chin. The type that take weeks to go away despite treatment. Awesome.

I've been getting spots lately - red lumps - that stay for weeks. Nothing gets rid of them.

Mine take about a month or so to completely disappear, about two weeks for the redness to go away though (but I can still feel the bump under the skin).
