Benzoyl peroxide making me breakout more?

I have about 15 pimples right now :(

I started out with about 8 active pimples and would apply the BP twice a day now I am getting new pimples RIGHT next to the ones I originally applying the BP on so wth?!

This is really frusturating. What am I doing wrong? HAs anyone else experienced this affect?

I would say that is actually quite the standard that early on in the regimen. I went my first 2 weeks with a worsening condition that sounds just like yours. I got new pimples right next door if you will to old ones..and sometimes the 2 pimples would morph together and form a "HUGE" one! It wasn't until the end of the 2nd week that all of them began to heal and disappear simultaneously just like Dan Posted in the things to expect section of the regimen you would think he was talking about me. I know it seems counter intuitive to continue something you feel is making it worse..but this is where patience is of the utmost. Hang in there and be consistent and patient...you will get better.
