Please can someone give me some advice!!

 

I dabbed the acnecide gel to my spots (forehead, t zone and chin) and left overnight, woke up today with burn marks in the places I applied the gel which were all very red, sore and tight! I immediately washed my face with cold water and removed the gel then finished with the simple moisturiser. Couple hours later and my skin is still really sore and almost blister like? Ive put some aloe vera on now and hoping for the best overnight but my whole face is tight, its so painful and uncomfortable im struggiling to sleep :( i see such amazing reviews for this gel i was so excited and now ive completely burnt my skin using it! Has anyone else experienced this or have any recommendations? :(

No lo vuelvas a usas, las molestias despareceran en máximo 7 dias, nunca vuelvas a usar peróxido de benzoilo ya que eres alérgico, tranquilo que se te pasará rápido, solo no te rasques.

What did they give you to help it? So was it just antihistamines? 

To Author: did you eventually have any results with your acne?

No they gave me steroids and steroid cream! Thats how bad it was :( 

 

& No turns out my skin was clear for about 2 days after the reaction cleared and then my acne came back!! Been doctors several times since then and all they’ve given me is creams and one gave me the same reaction when i patch tested it on my arm so i finally figured out im allergic to benzoyl peroxide! :o

OMG, this is crazy :( At least you know now! Wonder how many strugglers out there don't know they are allergic to the very thing they are trying to solve their problems with!

My exact thoughts!! The acnecide cream is so strong for facial skin too :smileys_n_people_41: hopefully people are more careful and patch test unlike i did!

Your skin might be sensitive or you're allergic.  Scary! I think that's why they tell us to try it on the other less sensitive areas like the elbow first as this may happen.
