I wouldn't recommend using the BP (or any topical acne medication) until your skin has healed. You might actually want to speak to your doctor, as they may be able to give you advice on how to care for your damaged skin in the meantime.

Boils/acne. Sounds more like acne. Castor oil can be comedogenic for some. Check with a derm, as c'est says. Now that you do have acne, that means you are acne prone. So be careful with what you apply to your skin.

Should i see a derm? or a regular doctor? I am just so paranoid about derms because i have heard so many bad stories about how they use you basically for a guinea pig and just start prescribing things that left and right.. :/ has this ever happened to anyone before? the boils from the castor oil i mean..
