the regimen and ALCOHOL = red flush...

Hey,

Ive been on the regimen for a good while now - and the bp works a charm for my moderate acne.

however recently ive been getting a bad facial 'flush' all over the areas of my face i use the benzoyl peroxide when i drink alcohol. It looks like a huge blotchy rash. not pleasent.

Ive tried switching cleansers to something more sensitive (i was using cetaphil when it started) - and some reduce the effect more than others.

HOWEVER im still getting it. It tends to be on the cheeks and sides of my face, whilst my forehead and nose are fine. The places that arent effected are exactly the spots i dont apply bp too.

its too much of a coincidence - as ive never had a flush when i drink. plus i stopped using bp for a few weeks and the flush stopped. period.

Has anyone experienced the same thing? or have any ideas as too why this is happening?

thanks,

Tom.

:think:

I got a flush like that when I drank on Accutane and for a while after I was done... but I never experienced it with benzoyl peroxide.

:think::think::think::think:

maybe someone else knows?
