Extreme Itching, Redness And Dry Patches

Recommended Posts

So i had been on The Regimen for a year and then bam.... eczea on face. I stopped, eczema cleared up but acne came back. Went to a derm and got prescribed retinoids and told to us BP in AM (light coating). Two days of using BP in the AM and i am itching, skin is red and dry (despite moisturizer) in the area of mouth and jaw/chin (sides). I washed off all topicals and moisturized but i'm still itching, what do i do? Ice? I took 2 benadryl. Is this an allergic reaction to BP?

Which BP are you using?

I was on the regimen for 4 months and then suddenly got the eczema on my face too and stopped using BP for ~8 months. I can use it now but only a very light coating and only for the occasional spot treatment. Any more than that and my skin starts itching/turning red pretty quickly. It sounds like an allergic reaction to me since you've only used it for 2 mornings.
