Is this even POSSIBLE?

Is this effect even possible?

I had completed accutane 6 months prior and it was good but I started getting mild acne again so I went to buy some OTC cream. Clearsil with sulfur. The first night I only did spot treatment and it dried it up very well. Then I put on a a larger area and it dried up the acne and all was well. No sign of anything bad.

On the 3rd or 4th night, I put it all over my face and the next morning I had a terrible breakout. Why is it that the first few nights, it cleared up my face and then caused a big breakout?

Perhaps it was too drying for your skin. Did you moisturize? Sulphur is good for drying out pimples ..but in combination with bp..it might be too much. If your skin it too dry..you juz overwork your oil glands..irritate the skin and cause more breakouts.
