It took me a while but I'm back for a new Post!
I am now on Week 3 (Tuesday of Week 3) into the Regimen treatment.
So far since the last picture I started clearing after about 1 1/2 weeks. Then came the flakyness. I can't shave all that much because it causes irritation so I always trim my beard short with a trimmer.My skin then was very dry that I had to stop using BP for one or 2 days and only did the regimen with a moisturizer. Amazingly no new pimples formed during that timespan but as soon as i started back into the regimen it took about 2-3 days and then out of nowhere came some huge, deep, painful pimples that were very resilient. I used some AHA cream to spot-treat those forming pimples but there was no stopping them. They were so painful I had to wait until they were OK to be popped (leaving new Red Marks in the Process...D'oh)
On these two new pictures you can see one on my forehead and about 4 or 5 on each cheek and some more in my chin area. They are really painful and won't go away.
The problem is once I pop one of them a new one starts forming someplace else in my Face as if it were replacing the lost pimple i popped... Like magic, not very cool magic if you ask me I am mad because this always happens when my face clears
up and bam another painful one...At first i thought this was another breakout as described in the "waht to expect" section and expedted it to clear more quickly than usual. But nope, huge tough painful pimples...
My skin also is very flaky now but I will try to compensate with more moisturizer and use some more during the day if excessive flaking occurs.
I will comtinue the Regimen as explained and will ramp up to FULL BP by the end of the week. I hope this will help clear the pimples and prevent new ones from forming.
If anybody has any tips or extra questions feel free to leave me a post!
