I've been on the regimen for almost 3 months now. Results have been iffy, but obviously I can see that I need more time.

One thing has bothered me is that my face is always itchy. I try not to scratch it, but it's super hard not to. I know, the more scratching I do = more irritation which = more acne. So, anything I can do to stop the itching?

Read here first. http://www.acne.org/faq.html#itch

The first thing we need to do is figure out what's causing the itching. You've been on the Regimen for three months now, so your skin should be accustomed to the bp. Are you showing any other signs of allergy?

Sometimes dryness can cause the itching. Are you moisturizing well? You may want to consider adding some extra jojoba oil to your moisturizer and see if that comforts your skin.

You also mentioned you aren't as cleared up as you'd like to be. Let's see what else is going on. Take this little quiz. http://www.acne.org/regimenadvice.php

And read through the biggest mistakes. http://www.acne.org/biggestmistakes.html

Hope that helps.

Yeah, just ordered some Jojoba oil and it came in the mail today actually. I used it and it seems to be working. I can definitely tell that this itchiness has to becoming from dryness.

As for the results, my results have been great. When I say iffy, I just mean that dryness and itchiness are big problems that I have been having. This jojoba oil seems to be working so far.
