The End - Allergic?



Soo I think I'm allergic to BP. Who would have thought that I'm in that small percentage of the population that can't handle it. I know that for the first few weeks or so your face is supposed to be itchy, dry, red, and irritated, but when I woke up after only my second application of bp with my face extremely irritated and partially swollen, I figured it was the end of the Regimen for me.

What are your thoughts? Was your face extremely itchy and painful for the first few nights of using bp (the first two days I only did one application)? Should I try again and risk being swollen again?

After that morning I just stopped using bp, but have been washing my face gently and using the same gentle cleanser that I purchased. I also have been putting aloe on my face and added jojoba oil to my moisturizer to lessen the redness and heal my skin. Today my skin finally looks a lot less red, but it's still very dry (this is day 5 since I 'started' the regimen and 3 days since I stopped using bp).

I've read that aloe is also good in helping heal and clear acne so perhaps this will turn into a blog about my journey with aloe vera!

I disagree. That happened to me in the first two weeks also, then I reduced the amount of BP and my face ain't swollen no more. but as long as I increase the amount, it just swells up. So my speculation would be you came on too strong on your face! Don't give it up so soon, buddy.
