Confused!? Red/dark Marks Or Chemical Burn? Help (Pictures)

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

Basically I have been on the regimen since October and I must say it has cleared up my face alot! Literally I am left with some dark bumps and a few scars but no new acne just one spot on my right cheek. The only downside is my cheeks are very red so I have cut the regimen down to applying bp twice a day every other day and just applying it once before bed on the days inbetween to see how it goes. Anyway heres the problem, I hardly ever got acne on my forehead the odd spot here and there but otherwise it was always clear. When I started the regimen I stupidly applyed bp onto my forehead and quite alot of it twice a day. Immidieately i broke out with these horrible red bumps which were really painful and itchy and my forehead was burning like hell. I stopped applying bp to my forehead about a week or two after this and just cleansed and moisturised with Dans products adding some jojoba oil with the moisturiser. After a couple of weeks nothing was changing and the jojoba oil was really shining my forehead which made these marks even more obvious so i just cleansed and applyed moisturiser and have been doing since plus applying a thin layer of sudocrem at night as this is what i used on my face before the regimen and i found it worked well, problem is still no results? Im really confused with what to do and this is making me not want to go out and making me feel really down about myself. I think maybe its a burn from the bp as I remember feeling it burning when it was on my forehead or is it just scarring or dark marks or what? Please please any help to reduce this or anything would be much appreciated. I was thinking about getting some aloe vera gel from holland and barrett as im from the uk and applying it or applying just jojoba oil over them twice a day if that helps? Also I have switched to johnsons baby shampoo to see if that would make a difference as i thought maybe it was my hair causing the problem as it is longer than usual as i have grown it? Anyway heres some pics:

(First two are with some mens liquid foundation to cover the marks a bit sorry for bad quality)

BP has been know to cause dark marks, and it certainly did on me. It's why I stopped using it. There are peels and lightening products that can improve hyper pigmentation. Fish around and see what's best for your skin type and complexion.

Is this what it is? Hyper pigmentation? Literally I'm depressed over this I really don't know what to do there has been no change at all. Are there any products moisturisers, cleansers that I can use? I stopped using dans cleanser and switched to an Anthony gylolic cleanser and used freederm moisturiser a couple of weeks ago but still no change.

Please help

Cheers
