I've been using AHA for a while now and I notice that if I use it too much (3 times a day on a spot) I keep coming out in a bumpy red, itchy rash which then goes very, very dry. has anyone else had this problem and what have you done to calm the skin down? I'm wondering whether this is an allergy or that I'm just using too much and not using enough moisturizer over the top- a bit like with the BP.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

AHA is to harsh to use on your face more than once a day...

Thats what I'm wondering- I was following Dans spot treatment advice on applying it to a spot 2/3 times a day- but obviously my skins not happy with that.

Everybody's skin is different. My skin can handle spot treating with AHA a few times a day. Yours doesn't seem to be able to.

That being the case, I'd suggest only using AHA once a day, if your skin can handle it; if not, don't use it at all.
