Regimen substitute

I'm allergic to BP, even the slightest amount gives me hives on my face. I have naturally sensitive skin. I currently have cetaphil cleanser, but need a treatment that will be able to work on my skin. Suggestions.

Tea tree oil is a replacement for BP (they both kill bacteria). You can mix it with some moisturizer, a little bit, based on zinc, linoleic acid. This does not eliminate acne, it just help to control it. So also take some fatty acids suplements, drink plenty of water, exercise (but not too much), etc.

And the best you can do is to research, so you can try stuff knowing the purpose of it.

I too am highly allergic to bp (at one point my tongue even swelled up)

tea tree does nothing in my opnion (not for me anyways) but it could always be worth a try

there are loads of other things you could try such as sulphur, sal acid, lactic acid, aha etc etc

good luck
