question about BP and clogged pores

Recommended Posts

Hi, recently started using 2.5% bp once a day and it killed my inflammatory mild breakouts after only a week, but I have a ton of clogged pores/noninflammatory bumps, pretty much covering my cheeks. They're not as much visible as they are annoying, as theyre mostly noticable up close. (skin colored for the most part). I was wondering if BP is effective in eliminating these clogged pores/comedones as well? Since its mechanism is to kill bacteria present in inflamed acne. Thanks.

Oh, and salicylic acid/sulfur wasn't effective in getting rid of them.

Unfortunately I don't find that BP does a good job at getting rid of clogged pores at all. Have you tried Dan's AHA? I started using on my forehead only and within a month or so there were absolutely no clogged pores on my forehead. Now I'm using it on the rest of my face and it's clearing nicely (comedone wise).

I am having the exact same problem as dacrow. I started the regimen about 4.5 months ago to get rid of some nasty jawline acne. It has cleared that up beautifully, but around 2 months ago, I started getting lots of tiny little bumps over my cheeks and forehead which had previously been clear. The BP has not been effective in clearing them up at all. The strange thing is, when I first started the regimen, I used BP on along my jawline where the acne was concentrated. When that acne cleared, I began getting these tiny little pimples all over my face, first my forehead and then my cheeks and that's when I began using BP all over my face... the problem has only gotten worse.

Because of it, I have recently started using BP in the morning and AHA at night the last two weeks but haven't really seen a difference. Have you been using AHA both in the morning and at night? And do you use it with the BP? I have also been thinking of going back to only applying BP along my jawline. I will gladly take any advice anyone has to offer. I'm not sure where to go from here... I seem to have traded one problem for another.
