Am I allergic to BP?

Recommended Posts

I have been using the regimen exactly as directed for about 10 days. My face gets very red, itchy, hot and swells around my cheek area a bit (at least that's what people at work have been saying). Am I allergic to BP? Should I stop using it? If I should stop what can I substitute in its place because it has really kept the acne at bay. I don't have a crazy amount of acne but my skin is very oily and thanks to the BP my skin is now completely smooth I just have 4-5 red marks under my skin from previous acne. I am very happy with the smoothness of my skin. Please reply if you have any advice. Thank you to everyone in advance!

Your skin isn't allergic. This is basically the process where your skin is adjusting to the BP. After a while your skin will settle and the dry itchy feeling will go away. Just make sure you are moisturizing your skin well. Give the regimen time to really help you and power on through the annoying irritation a bit longer. :)
