Sorry, from your post I don't know what "ocm" is and I'm not sure what if anything you're mixing with the aspirin. Yes, it could be you're having a reaction to the aspirin. I'd make sure to try the most simple (noncoated, no additives) aspirin you can buy.

I've used just the aspirin for my masks. I wash my face, then I take the ground up aspirin, wet it with warm water to make a paste and apply it to my face and allow to dry. I've had no problems only good results.

If you're mixing with different things see if you can just use the aspirin. If not, experiment. I've read a lot of things on this site used in the aspirin mask.

Outside of a mask, I'd also recommend Dickinson's witch hazel as a nondrying after cleanser astringent/toner. Good luck

I tried both safflower and sunflower and they broke me out. Awful super-inflamed suckers too.

I doubt it was the aspirin.
