    Redness on neck

    Hi guys, I started using the Acne.org 11 days ago. For the first week I applied the treatment on my neck , where in I don't get acne on my neck. And now my neck is all red and black very irritated and it burns a lot. I stopped using the treatment on my neck , the burning has not yet gone. Please suggest me something.

    Face Red And Burning?

    I've been on the regimen for about 6 months now. My skin is still very dry so I moisturize a lot! But I've noticed that my face almost burns when I do the regimen. After I apply the BP and moisturizer, my skin looks really really red, almost like it's sunburned. It's horrible. My face isn't clear yet so I want to continue doing the regimen. Any advice? Should I use less BP or what?
  4. Hi, I have been using the kit for around 3 days now (and I'm loving it so far!) and I'm using the BP as recommended but I'm finding that my skin isn't over drying or becoming itchy etc so I'm wondering if it would be safe to/ recommended to increase the dosage/ frequency that I'm applying it to my skin? Thank you, Erika
  5. Hello! I would like some advice, but first a little back story. Up until 3 months ago I've been a Proactiv user for nearly 10 years and it kept my skin looking great. I washed my face twice a day because if I don't my face gets full of blackheads, random pimples and just basically breaks out with mild acne. Anyway, I decided to try The Regimen because Proactiv hasn't been keeping my skin as clear as it used to be. Today is Day 5 of The Regimen and my skin looks really nice...there is no
  6. Hello all, I was wondering if you could help "clear something up" for me. (Ha.) I have a little pinkish red spot on the lower right tip of my nose that burns like a scraped knee. It also looks slightly swollen around that area. Sometimes it doesn't hurt at all but remains red. Sometimes it looks oily but just in that spot. It seems to be worse in the summer and especially at night when I feel it throb. I can see there are very tiny bumps and blood vessels in that little area. It hasn
  7. I've been on The Regiming for almost 2 weeks now. I use Cerave Foaming Cleanser, Dan's BP, and Cerave PM moisturizer. My skin has cleared up very well and i only get maybe 1 pimple every few days now. The problem is the itching and drying. My skin got really dry and the skin has become rough, ever with moisturizer on. I read the glowing reviews about Jojoba oil and i went to the vitamin store and bought some. The first day i added 5 drops of jojoba oil to my moisturizer and mixed it and then ap

    Painful Reddening

    I've been on the regimen for 8 days now. I saw some quick results the first couple of days. However just as I increased the BP dosage to twice a day to start off week #2, I started feeling severe burning in the sensitive parts of my face (about an inch under my eyes right by both sides of my nose). This pain lasts for about 2 to 3 hours after my evening routine and isn't nearly as severe as when I apply BP in the morning. What's the reason for this? Has this happened to anyone else? I don't mi
  9. Ok. So I'm a 22 year old female who has always struggled with acne and decided to go to a dermatologist. I always used over the counter products but they never worked. I have acne on my face, neck, back, chest and buttocks. A lot I know. He prescribed Epiduo once a day (by night on my affected areas), Minocycline once a day with food (which I take by night too), Oxy wash two times a day and to keep using my old Moisturizer L'oreal Ideal Moisture Sensitive Skin with SPF by day. So the first

    Day 16: And We're Back

    Well, I freaked out yesterday, but it looks like my skin is back to progressing. Most of the areas that were popped yesterday are either now red marks or smaller whiteheads, which I'm fine with. It could've been worse! Of course, my skin is also back to its insanely dry, red, and burning routine. Applying the BP is never bad, but for some reason when I put on the 2 pumps of moisturizer (and 5-6 drops of jojoba now ) my skin starts freaking out and stinging like mad. It definitely needs
  11. Hello! I saw a youtube video raving about acne.org and decided to give it a try! I started 3 days ago and have some questions. Background: Im 19 years old and have had moderate to light acne since I was in 7th grade. Its mild compared to some, but bothersome to say the least. I break out the worst a week or a few days before my TOM and sometimes experience breakouts for 2 weeks after, then have a few days of clear skin, and the cycle repeats itself. I have lost 23 pounds in the last 3 mon
  12. Is this normal??? Please answer me.. After washing my face, I see my face which looks like a snake.... This morning, I even tried to peel it off.. and I managed to do so a lil bit.. but was a bit scared coz was worried to cause further problems... It is exactly like I am wearing a colourless mask on my face.. I can't talk easily nor smile.. Because it's so dry and covered with a layer of my dead skin which I can see and peel.. My skin is covered with something like a dead skin...
  13. 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.
  14. I've had hormonal acne on my chin and around nose but never on my nose. Ive done 2 rounds of accutane ro get rid of that and have been clear since. Ive recently been getting breakouts in my nose only, little clusters at a time. Is this acne or could it be something else? I should add that it can get itchy and feels a bit burning sometimes
  15. I have finally gotten my acne under control with Retin-A Micro, spironolactone, and Lo Loestrin birth control. Now my problem is that my skin is so sensitive that every moisturizer burns. I have used Cerave, cetaphil, Elta MD, and a few others. Any recommendations? The burning only lasts abut 30-60 seconds, but it's still unpleasant.

So i just finished washing my face and im waiting for it to dry so i can put my RAM on. but my face (mainly around my mouth), is burning really bad! im not sure why. For the past few days, everytime i wash my face and it comes time to put on my clyndamycin

    Day 8: Ouch.

    Day 8 has proven so far to be quite the challenge. First, let me just say that the Regimen is still awesome. My skin is still progressing quite smoothly and at the proper pace However, my skin is definitely feeling the increased amount of BP, and it seems to be purging like no other. I don't really mean that it's breaking out. It just seems to be screaming, "EVERYTHING ON ME WILL DIE A PAINFUL DEATH." So, what's going on with my skin? Time to investigate: 1. I did have a mi

    Day 17

    40mg 2x day I should write down what happens, for myself and for anyone who might experience similar side effects/results. I'm turning 30 this month, going to be hard not to drink more than I should. My doctor and pharmacist said it was fine to have a few drinks from time to time. I've drank twice already on accutane- had half a bottle of wine, and another time had 2 drinks. Days 1-3- lips stated to get dry, nothing big. Days 4-10- lips got supe dry, and nose and skin. I had to upgra

    Baking Soda Burned My Skin!

    I use to use retin-a 1% every night, for about 4 months straight I'd say. The peeling never went down, i would exfoliate daily by rubbing in tons of moisturizer, continuing to rub until the dead skin pilled up, then lightly rubbing in circular motions all over with a face cloth. This would tend to get the worst of it, although it would leave my skin raw, not so much because it was red but it would sting when I applied toner and moisturizer afterwards, even though my toner is alcohol free. But
  20. So I heard about the regimen online and decided to give it a shot. I'm using the Neutrogena foaming cleanser, acne free's spot treatment (2.5% BP), and the Neutrogena oil-free moisturizer. I'm used to using products with BP in them, so I can tolerate the pain, but my whole face is red and burns after I apply it. Also, it appears more whiteheads have shown up onto my itchy red face. From what I've been reading, this sounds normal for the first week though. I also have some peeling- so hard to put
  21. HOLY COW! My face burns. Ouch. I used the DKR from 2005-March 2013, and it kept me mostly clear during that period of time. I was REALLY sick of "gently rubbing" for ten minutes every morning and night, and I was really sick of the itching and flaking and burning. Plus my skin was looking really dry and kinda wrinkly. Anyway, so I decided my problem was internal and I cut out gluten. That went well. But then I did something funky and it jacked my face UP! I'm talking WORST BREAKOUT EVER SIN
  22. So everything was just great in my 1st week on the Regimen. BUT yesterday night (9th day) after my evening application as soon as I put BP on my face it started to hurt and burn my skin so much! I mean it was really painful and similar thing happened today after the morning application. For the record it didn't happen in the 1st week.. maybe it's because I use BP two times a day now? Do you guys know what might be happening here? Should i continue as planned or skip a few evening applications?
  23. 16yr old male Regimen: PM: Differin 0.3 and Benzoyl Peroxide Clindamycin (5%/1%) Mylan generic gel at night after Murad Clarifying Mask and Neutrogena Redness Control Aloe & Chamomile Salicyic Acid 2% wash. I usually spot treat cystics or pustules with the Clarifying Mask after the retinoid and BP/C have dried. AM: Wash with Cerave Moisturizing Cleanser and follow with Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control 30SPF moisturizer first with Cerave PM moisturizer over. Then I put on the Mu
  24. Please help! I recently started the regimen. I'm 3 days in. I'm using the reccomended less than half a pump amount of BP and every time I use it I usually get some burning and itchiness when I apply moisturiser but not that bad, until tonight. I did my usual night stuff. Applied BP and moisturiser as normal (I used 1 and a 1/2 pumps of moisturiser) and my usual burning started but this time by the fifteen minute mark it was getting worse instead of better. I had intense but not unbearable tingli
  25. As the subject says, even after a week of using the treatment, I still feel the burn. I started the regimen last Wednesday and it's Wednesday today(S.Korea). So It's exactly a week today. I was told to increase the dosage from the second week. But the treatment still burns my face. Flakeness and dryness have been subdued , so I can wear make up fine, but I am super worried about that burning and stinging feeling I will get if I increase the dosage. Also, I still get a couple of acnes here
