Getting worse

I've been on the CSR for a week now and I'm not noticing my skin getting better, infact its getting worse. I have alot more pastules then usual along with more red marks than usual. Is this normal?

Yes, it's called the "initial breakout"

LOL. My initial breakout has lasted about 5 weeks.

But seriously, check out the pinned topic Kim wrote on being ready for DKR. It won't get better overnight, for some people it takes up to 3 months. Be patient and give it a fair shot.

Hybrid Spade is right. Some people do get a breakout around week 2, and some around week 5. This chart may help you.

The breakouts should lessen as time goes on and as you increase the amount of benzoyl peroxide you are using. Until you are at the full generous amount, you may not get totally cleared up.

And yes, do read Cool as Kim Deal's thread. It's pinned at the top of this forum.
