Ok, for some Reason Every time i use My BP 5%

I get Like a bazzillion New Pimples About 6 hours later.

But When i dont use it....i Rarely Break out i just get a new pimple here and there.

So Sal Acid 2% is what ive been Using and its been working like a charm on my forearm and Face and shoulders. i also have the Bath Scrub Which helps....

So For my Forearms im using Retin-A to get rid of the Red Marks Faster(Im not sure if thats what its for)

But thats what ive been doing.

So is it normal for Bp to Do that?

A small percentage of people are allergic to benzoyl peroxide, so its possible that may be what is happening with you.

Which brand of BP are you using? Sometimes its not the BP itself that causes the problems - it may be the product formulation.

When you do use BP, are you using it to spot treat or as an all-over treatment? Do you try using it just when you are getting a breakout, or have you tried it as a regular daily part of your regimen?
