BP causes itching while sweating?

Hi Everyone,

I used to use BP for a while, but my acne went away (or at least mostly) and I stopped using it. More recently, my skin has become out of control again. I found Dan's site, and am sold on using the BP again, per his instructions. However, I recall a problem that I used to have that I am wondering if anyone else has experienced?

I lived in the deep south at the time, and only experienced the problem in the summer. When I would go outside and begin perspiring, I would have this itching sensation on my skin. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know how to fix it (other than the obvious: don't do things that make you sweat)?

Just to be clear on the variables:

I did use SPF25 every day (It was in my Bare Minerals Foundation).

I am unsure of the BP percentage. I was using Proactiv in 2004. Currently the BP of Proactive is 2%, but it may have been higher at the time.

At one point I discontinued the foundation to ensure there were no interactions between the two products. The issue did not stop.
