Breakout on my Nose

Recommended Posts

Wow... I'm so sad... my nose has just broke out with around 20 little inflamed red dots.

I'm thinking (for the second time) that it is the BP (benzaclin) that is breaking me out. I uncloged a couple clogged pores on my nose :) so I decided to put BP on so they wouldn't worsen... I smeared the BP all over my nose and now I'm seeing the negative effects of BP.

It seems like BP has done nothing but harm for me :(

I'm using 5% BP but it also has Clindamycin (why its named benzaclin... its prescription)... I'm still afraid of dropping the strength of the BP but I might because it seems like this is doing nothing.

Thanks for the advice ;)

How long have you been on benzaclin? I used it for about a year - the first 5 months or so was great, then it slowly stopped working.

BP is great for certain skin types, but it certainly isn't for everyone.
