Gets worse before it gets better?

I started the regimen about 5 days ago. I've been using Cetaphil Gentle Cleaning Bar with Spectro Acne Care 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide gel and Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture SPF 15. I have not been having problems with peeling or anything (my face is used to Benzoyl Peroxide) but I've been breaking out like crazy since I've started this regimen. Is this supposed to happen? If so, how long before I start seeing improvements? Please help!

It is supposed to happen. The BP is bringing all the bacteria that has already formed under the skin, to the surface...this pimples you are getting would have formed eventually. The BP should help them heal faster and should be gone in no time. This is normal.

Unfortunately this happens to most people when they first use BP, its just all the rubbish underneath your skin coming to surface, to make way for clean pores! :)
