    Reddish-Brown Bump On My Nose

    Okay so I really really need advices and stuff because I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE. I have this reddish-brown bump on my nose after I put Benzoyl Peroxide (5%) on my pimple which never really came to a head. IT DOESN'T HURT AT ALL. Like at all!! It's so strange. I think it got burned from BP??? I don't know. But I've had it for like 3 weeks now and I have an event in 2 weeks so I need it to go away already or at least flatten (even with a scar) because then I can just put concealer but with this bump??
  2. So I have been using a 5% benzoyl peroxide cleanser everyday and it has improved my bacne, however i still have some pimples on my back. Because of this all of my sheets, pillow cases, and pj shirt have been bleached. My sheets and pillowcases are a light shade of brown. Would benzoyl peroxide bleach white materials?
  3. Hello everyone ! I have always had sensitive skin but have suffered with acne since I was about 13, all over my face and the rare occasion on my neck or chest area. I tried everything to stop it, scrubbing my face, all of the over the counter soaps, scrubs and creams I could get my hands on. I stopped eating sweets/candy and drank nothing but water for 2.5 years. None of it made any difference until I found Benzoyl Peroxide. I can across it in an online forum and decided it was worth a try, w

    Skin Frustration and Vitamin A

    This year, I've become increasingly frustrated with my acne since it has started appearing more frequently in strange places - like my forearms, hands, fingers, and stomach. While in the past I put my acne concerns on the back burner, recent events have made fighting this acne a much higher priority. It's at least somewhat socially acceptable to have acne on the face - or on the back and chest - but not other weird places. It's just scary and frustrating to think that I might not have any c

    Day 107!

    So I have been completely acne free for like 2 weeks now. Ive been using the Bio Oil every day and Im starting to see results from that with my acne scars. its making my skin super hydrated and not oily suprisingly. I switched my face wash to Giovanna Dtox and I dont really know how I feel about it yet as it isn't as sudsy as my Basis Cleaner clean face wash but the Giovanni face wash has activated charcoal and goji berry so it sounds good to me. Oh and it has volcanic ash too. I even put t
  6. I'm thinking of switching from Tea Tree Oil to Benzoyl Peroxide just because how slow Tea Tree Oil is working for me. It's too slow for me. Will there be any problem if I switch? Also, how many times a day do I apply Benzoyl? I currently apply Tea Tree Oil twice a day.

    One Month

    FEAR ME! Yes! I quit benzoyl peroxide cold turkey.. One day I just .. STOPPED. OK. Well, I am at 1 month. I thought my acne was bad while on the REGIMEN. HOLY COW. This last month has been awful. I've broke out on my forehead and on my chin; places I've NEVER EVER got acne before. Not on my nose, however...strange. Not to exclude my cheeks and the sides of my face. During this last month I've had to prepare myself for college which means being out in public and showing them my ugly mu
  8. My face turns red after applying sunblock on over benzoyl peroxide; this didn't happen a couple of months ago. What can/should I do to relieve the redness?
  9. About 5 days ago, I began using a benzoyl peroxide face wash from Kasier Permanente at the advice of my dermatologist. Other reviews say that bp face washes cleared up their skin almost within a week but I don't see any results yet (although, I will keep using it for a few more weeks since everyone has different skin types). I've only been using washing with it for 30 seconds a day and using a lotion (Johnson&Johnson) or sunscreen after, but it seems that it might be worsening my acne. I mai
  10. So I've been using Jojoba oil, zinc oxide and benzoyl peroxide for the past week. Zinc with benzoyl does not seem like a good idea since my skin got super dry after I washed it. I've got cystic acne on me cheeks, I believe its from touching/pillow but the oil production hasn't decreased yet and zinc is working like a charm(not sure if it's good in the long-run tho). Has anybody else tried doing this? How can I modify this routine to get more results? btw going to stop using bp and see if anythin
  11. Im doing a 3 part acne program that I have found online from a person who has studied acne over the years. For the 3rd step for mild-moderate acne he reccommends a topical 5% benzoyl peroxide cream. For more severe acne he reccommends using Epiduo (Tactuo) which is a prescription topical cream that contains 0.1% Adapalene and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. Unfortunately I have not seen a dermatologist in over a year and an appointment can take months to get. On hand I have benzoyl peroxide 5% and
  12. I was reading posts about the few people who found success with Compound W on keloid scars but instead of salicyclic acid I was wondering if anyone ever just tried to dab some Benzoyl Peroxide on their keloid scars to see what would happen?

    Day 85! Over 4000 Views On My Blog!

    So first off I wanna say thanks to everyone for reading my blog now that I have over 4000 views! I havent had one zit until today I got a very very small one that will be gone in a day or two. I've noticed Accutane is making me not very hungry at all. My skin has been really dry and Im using all the same products. Im almost halfway done with Accutane! My hyperpgimentation is still there and I am patiently waiting for them to fade. Theres not really much else to update. Keep reading!!!
  14. I'm hoping someone out there can help me. I recently started using the Acne.org regimen that includes the face wash, the benzoyl peroxide treatment, the moisturizer, and the 10% glycolic acid moisturizer. My problem is that I keep breaking out in what I can tell to be whiteheads and cystic pimples that eventually come to the surface as whiteheads. My skin is extremely oily but I don't know what is causing my skin to breakout like this. My face typically only has one or two bumps but after using
  15. Hi, I am 15 years old and suffer from acne. I have started my skincare routine which is made up of African black soap, a pore unclogging face scrub that contains sacrylic acid, a toner, and a moisturizer which is just cocoa butter. after these products, i apply benzoyl peroxide and go to sleep. I am on day 3 of this routine and am noticing my skin is very very dry throughout the day. I lather lotion and it dries up 20 minutes later. I'm experiencing a lot of skin flaking, occasional burning, and

    19 Days After Using Persa Gel 10

    From the album: Persa gel 10 Benzoyl peroxide

    I took this picture today (September 27th) and my skin broke out some more. Ugh. But those white spots are actually small pimples that have come to a head so I guess that is a good thing. do you think my skin is getting better, is the same, worse, or I still need to give it some time? This Tuesday makes 3 weeks and since then I don't know if it has gotten better or worse.
  17. So I'm three weeks into the regimen at the moment. As frustrating as it is still seeing no significant positive results, I'm continuing to follow the regimen diligently and trying my best to be patient. I'm having quite a significant reaction to the benzoyl peroxide however, and I was looking for further clarification regarding applying the regimen. As is apparently typical even in the third week, my skin is horrifying at the moment. It's dry, very red, and extremely flakey - as in, every mor
  18. Hi all, Not sure if I'm posting this in the right spot (new user here) and I just wanted to ask anyone who has used the Regimen, should my skin be burning from the benzoyl peroxide? I've been using it for 2 weeks (this is my second I think) and I've just upped the dosage of BP and now my skin is starting to burn and feel tight, as if I've been badly sunburnt. Thing is, I've used BP before (years ago) and it was 5% and nothing like this happened. So is this just normal? It just burns.
  19. I'm 19 years old male and I've been suffering acne for the past 5 years. During this time I've used almost everything (bp, salicylic acid, zinc oxide you name it), now my skin looks really old, flaky and most of all oily on the top but looks dehydrated AF on the bottom. I've used bp for the past 2 years which helped with acne but it never solved the problem. Looking now I believe that it was bp that damaged my skin permanently. Now I'm going as natural as possible. My routine: AM - wash face w
  20. Could anyone review what has been going on for me? I've been doing the regimen for almost 3 weeks. On the guide chart on the main regimen page it says in week 1 skin is red and itchy but by the end of week 2/3 it becomes less so. I do think that my spots are a little better, but not so noticeably. For example is was not uncommon for my skin to fluctuate between being fairly good and being horrendous - the change is no different to a fairly good influx. But what is noticeable, is that
  21. My first day of the Regimen and it is about 20 minutes before I do the second part of today. Since it is my first week, it says on the video to only use BP once a day. Does this mean I should just use the cleanser and then cut straight to the moisturizer, skipping the BP treatment part?
  22. does it dry out your skin? anyone got wrinkles or scars from it? how abt texture and overall skins tone and quality? how does it looks after this treatment? what it does to redmarks? slow or speed up their healing? redness, inflammation, what abt those? does bp rly work and how soon?? if i decide to try this can i just get bp? and use my own cleanser and moisturiser? will it work as effective or less? pls answer
  23. Hey guys! How are you all doing? This is my first post here. I've been battling moderate acne for quite a while (5 years), i'm 19 now. I've tried all sorts of topicals and antibiotics, and I've noticed that Benzoyl Peroxide worked quite well for me. After having used it for a few months, I was 75% clear with the occasional few pimples every now and then, but I had flaky skin and I believed that BP was trapping my oils. I decided to stop using it and look for natural cures. Green tea he
  24. As evidenced in my last post, I’ve smeared a lot of crap on my face. But, what do I use now? And do I like it? CURRENT ROUTINE: AM: 1. I wake up, pissed off because I haven’t figured out a way to safely inject coffee into my blood stream. 2. Shuffle to bathroom. Shuffle to closet. Shuffle to dresser. Forget what I was doing. Groan. 3. Wash with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Okay, so let’s be honest. I bought the knockoff Wal-Mart Equate Skin C
  25. I have been using Benzoyl Peroxide for around a year now and ever since, my face has been red. I tried lowering the concentration but that didn't do much. I was thinking of switching to Neutrogena's Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment. Has anyone tried this before? Would this be a safe switch?
