Day 3

Today i woke up with some discomfort and when i looked in the mirror i had noticed a lot of redness/irritation around my mouth, chin and a bit on my cheeks.
Usually i would cleanse my skin morning and night but this morning i tried to use my cleanser (i  have never had an issue with it) and to my horror it made my skin feel like it was burning!
I washed it off with cool water and let it dry.

Now i am having some intense peeling in the areas that were red and irritated.
I made an appointment with my gp and he was sympathetic but told me you have to ease in to using the epiduo, say use it one night a week for a few weeks then increase it to two nights for a few weeks and so on. - Here i am wishing he told me this in the first place.

I  am going to give my skin a break from the epiduo until it settles and then will try again.
The akamin antibiotics i will continue to take as i have had no issue with them at all so far.

I hope this can help anyone if they have the same reaction as me.
