Cystic acne after starting Acne.org's Regime

Hola all,

I've gone through all the searches, but haven't seen any posting about this particular problem (or there's something up with the way I'm phrasing the question).

I started the regime in January and was clear on my forehead, cheeks and nose by mid-March. However, I started to get cystic acne on my chin. And it wouldn't stop even though the only change I made was putting on a little AHA every night. Before, the only problem I had with the acne on my chin were white heads right under my lip.

Now, I've stopped and started. My acne flares up worse than I've ever had it after only a few days of not using BP. Then, whenever I increase the amount of BP (I start out slowly every time), I get cystic acne on my chin.

Does anyone else have this problem and solved it? Could the skin cells on my chin be different than the rest of my face?

Thanks to anyone who can help!

Let's be sure you are using enough bp and doing everything correctly.

Hi Brandy - I believe I am doing it correctly. The last few months have been sporadic, but once I start being strict about it I get a big old cystic acne on my chin while the other acne shrinks. It just doesn't make sense that one area would break out and another would clear up. ::shrug:: It's particularly irritating because it leaves behind dark purple scars.
