Post Q's about reaction to Proactiv

I know this is a sensitive subject. But I have recently started Proactiv (thanks to a very nice person out there). It was fine for the first two days, but now I am seeing tiny bumps in certain areas of my face. Also, the places where I used the BP lotion are red.

I hear that some people do suffer from these tiny bumps on their face. I was wondering if you stopped Proactiv all together or just slowed down the amount of times you use the product each day.

Any suggestions?

P.S MEanwhile, do you have any suggestions as to what I can use on my face to help the bumps and dry DRY skin? I have started applying Pure Vit E oil....I hope that helps.

when I used it I had to slow down with it. I am also very sensitive skinned so I tend not to like bp. Maybe you can use it everyother day.

my face was red from the lotion for a week or so, maybe longer, but it went away. i like proactiv, but it hasn't cleared me up.
