Hey Guys,

I was using a 3% glycolic acid cleanser (by skn) for about a month.

This past few days my skin has been getting itchy and burning - mainly around my lips.

The skin has formed into little bumps so you can see all of the pores and is a little red. Is this a reaction to the glycolic acid, does this sound like an irriration reaction?

Does anyone know how to help the irritation ? How long will this last!

Thanks for any help you can give me!

It sounds like irritation, even though 3% is pretty low percentage wise. Had you never used AHA before? What else are you using?

That's what confused me- 3% I thought was very low!

I have never used an AHA before- went straight into using it 2times per day.

Other than that I just use skn acne moisturiser and salysilic acid aknicare Spot treatment- actually the area that has become irritated was where I used salysilic acid the most.... So I guess it could be that?

I'd appreciate any advice you could offer...
