Something other than BP irritating my skin?

Recommended Posts

While using the Neutrogena BP, my face got severely red, itchy and dry... but I'm now, after visiting my doctor, I'm back on the Solugel cream (soon to be accutane), and nothing is happening to my face. As I understand it, Solugel is BP... am I wrong?

I have 'Hydrophase Solugel', BP is 4%, made by Stiefel , in a gel form. I didn't know they had a cream. The results have been great in less than a week , but the burning is hellish! I was into my 3rd day - or 6th treatment

with it before I saw the reaction. :oops:

If you are asking why the neutrogena made you itch & the solugel didn't it's probably bcs the base or suspension used in the solugel is more "refined" and easier on your face. If you are worried that no itching means it's not working, that's usually not the case, but I've been in the same erroneous boat. I thought I had to be in "pain" for it to be effective...not true.
