BP concerns..

I'm really hesitant to start trying out the regimen because I think I might be allergic to BP. I know it's recommended to start out with a small amount in case my skin is just overly sensitive, but when I've used BP in the past, I noticed some swelling. I don't know if it's because I used too harsh of a BP (I don't remember if I used 2.5% or 5% or 10%), or maybe I had switched too suddenly from salylic acid. In any case, I didn't just try out BP once, I tried it out three or four times with the same results (skin tender, some swelling). Right now I'm using salylic-based products, but spring break is coming up (after next week), and I'm willing to give it another shot (lol, as long as I don't have to face anyone). What do you guys suggest?

hmmm, I don't know. Swelling is certainly a red flag, along with itching/crusting. If you do decide to give it another try, just be very careful. Maybe check with a derm to be on the safe side.
