Initial breakout?

Hey guys. :)

I've been using a 3.5% BP gel while waiting for the CSR supplies to arrive (which they just did, hooray!). It's been about a week and while I noticed some improvement in the first few days-- my skin felt nicer, old pimples were healing faster than usual-- I have had a new and rather severe breakout in the last few days. My face is the worst it's been in a while and I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if this is a sign it's working. :)

VERY common. Some people have intial breakouts after the introduction of anything new at all to their skin. Like me. Don't worry. Think of it as cleaning out your closet. It's gotta get a lot messier before you can have an uber organized masterpiece of a wardrobe. Or at least that's been my experience.
