Sounds to me like your having a allergic reaction.

It looks like pigmentation to me, it will go away on its own. Give it time. Sometimes hyperpigmentation can take a long long time to fade. Even more so if you are exposing this to the sun and not using SPF

I say stick it out for the 3 month mark. If your not seeing results at that point I'd move on. You can email brandy at brandy@acne.org for regimen assistance. She can give you advice. You could judge if your having an allergic reaction as well. It is possible your skin may have become used to the BP and it's not working anymore.

Hey,
First of all do not be so hard on yourself. I know how hard acne is to deal with, trust me I do. I think you are a attractive guy even with the acne. I think that self esstem and the confidence you show have a lot to do with each other. If you carry yourself like your confident other people will believe it to. If your walking around feeling sad and down about the hand you were delt it's not very attractive ya know. For example, people in a club or bar the people who are laughing and smiling get more attention, the person quite and somber in the corner doesn't get approached that often. Something to think about.

As far as the Regimen goes, I think it is a great idea to give it a go. It does do great things for other peoples skin even cystic acne which is what your acne sounds like, when you describe it. It is something you need to stick with, it's not likely to see great results in a months time. I'd give it 3 months, just like you give any treatment with acne. As far as how you are currently treating your acne. I would only use one medicated product on your face. If your going to use SA use products that all have SA I wouldn't mix the BP and the SA. The regimen is a BP treatment so if you have results from the BP it is likely that the regimen will work great for you. The first month is usually the hardest for anyone on the regimen if you go and poke around on people's regimen logs you will see this among them. If you can stick it out after the month and you will have a easier time with it.

Hope this helps you a bit anyway
