Acne is coming back...Is BP stopped working?

Recommended Posts

I've been taking the regimen for a little about 2 1/2 years. Until last month, I noticed I was getting clogged pores all over my face. Now my whole cheek has clogged pores and I'm getting more and more whiteheads. It's been like this for about 2 months now. I've been doing the same regimen, same products. Does BP stopp working? I may have to go to the dermatologist now.

If your acne type has changed from mainly inflamed acne (the kind BP does a really good job of treating) to lots of non-inflamed acne (blackheads and clogged pores), then seeing a derm is not a bad idea. You might end up applying a topical retinoid at one time of day for the non-inflamed acne and BP at the other time of day to prevent inflamed acne.

A non-prescription option to try out is to incorporate in a salicylic acid lotion into your routine before you put on BP. Neutrogena makes basically the only well-formulated salicylic acid lotions available in drugstores, so I would start there.
