  1. @noch Thanks again for your advice, it's really appreciated. I've read up on folliculitis and looked at some pictures of what it looks like and it doesn't appear to be what I'm suffering from. I might ask my GP about this though to be certain. I'm not sure if my reaction was caused by my skin just not agreeing with the BP or whether it was because I put too much on too soon, my gut feeling is the latter. I purchased some Jojoba Oil a couple of days ago but I am yet to put it on my skin as
  2. Just to update, my skin has been healing well since I last posted. The redness is hardly noticeable, I feel no skin irritation, no burning or itchiness and the Cetaphil Lotion has worked total wonders on the flaking skin.
  3. @skybluega Hi. I ended up purchasing Acnecide 5% Gel, I had to discontinue the product more so due to my own stupidity. This thread will explain what happened, It may work for other people who only apply it once per day or once every other day for the first week or two.
  4. @clearacneforever Hi. I have never had an allergy test done to fully prove food is not the cause of my persistent acne, however I have been eating healthy for a long, long time, using a paleo diet as a guide. I eradicated those foods commonly associated with Acne several years ago, those foods being things containing dairy, wheat and gluten. I can also definitely rule out any possible hormonal imbalance as I did get that checked by my doctor and the results came back perfectly normal.
  5. Thanks for the reply Brandy. I'm currently using Cetaphil Sensitive Skin Cleanser as well as Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion, I apply both every day once in the morning and at night. I've seen a lot of posts suggesting I use Jojoba Oil to help with the flaking so I ordered some today which will arrive tomorrow, it looks really awful right now. I'm not sure what to do with the redness or the discoloured blotches either, my main concern is that because I already suffer from sensitive, easily
  6. Are you using Dan's BP? How much are you applying and how many times per day? I too have worries about the redness. Because I couldn't afford to get my hands on Dan's stuff I had little choice but to get an alternative, unfortunately for me the only alternative locally was Acnecide 5% Gel, which I bought and stupidly used twice per day for three days straight. I stopped using it on Saturday evening but my skin is still a complete mess at the moment, I have red blotches all over my face a
  7. I live in the UK and apparently you have to pay an extra charge to customs when you order from the US, I ended up buying a different BP which I totally regret now
  8. Hi guys, I could really do with your help urgently here! (apologies if this is in the wrong section) I suffer from regular pustular acne on my cheeks and along my jawline and I simply just had enough of getting them every week and had to do something to put an end to them, I had tried all sorts of OTC products, doctor prescriptions and even tried eating healthier but nothing worked. So having seen the success rate the BP regimen had for many on here, I simply had to give it a go as a last re
