Time to really stay away from BP

HarleyZ

291 views

A week ago I promised myself that I'd definitely go back on BP this week, because of all the whiteheads on my lower cheeks, forehead and the cysts on my chin. I took a pea-sized portion of BP, and very carefully put it on spots on my forehead, lower cheeks and chin. I went to bed. Six hours later I got up, and saw GIANT red patches on my lower cheeks. The shapes are irregular, and I can tell that the redness definitely came from applying BP - and I put on the finest amount! I immediately washed my face and decided that I'd never ever use BP on my face again.
I remember when I started on BP four months ago, this did not happen. My face did get dry and red, but nothing so drastic like this. I think it might have something to do with the eczema outbreak I had towards the end of my BP treatment. My skin has been incredibly sensitive since. My forehead and chin still look normal, because the oil production in those areas is really abundant, which protects my skin from being irritated.
I am freaking out. I immediately moisturized my face, and those red patches feel really warm under my moisturizing mask. The only console I have is that they don't sting or itch. I guess right now it's just an initial warning that my skin gave me. 
I will just stick to the Chinese herbal medicine regimen. I came across a supplement called L-lysine online. I ordered it and will give it a shot when it arrives. Ugh.
