Hi, i am 29 Female. I do suffer from acne on my both cheeks. I used to treat them well with benzoyl peroxide, gentle face wash and moisturiser. I've stopped using benzoyl peroxide due to its harshness. It has been about 6 months since I have stopped using it. I noticed lately that I have these 'patches' 'swelling' 'welts' on my skin. I'm not sure what it is. But I have attached a picture of it. i have been have this for about 3-4 months. it has not gone away. What can i do to get rid of it?

I experienced the same as you before. My skin started turning red and swelling, my derm said it was because my skin was sensitive and i used too my benzoyl peroxide for my acne. he said that it can be quite harsh on the skin. if its not due to that, possibly it may be other new skin care products or soap that u are using?? have u used anything else new recently?

Hi! 


Thanks for your reply. I’m pretty sure it’s due to BP as I used like massive amounts Everyday. Sigh. Big mistake. I googled for BP allergy and none has symptoms like this. Did yours go away? How did you get rid of it? Thank you!

Yeah BP is one of the harshest creams to use on the face. Mine went away with time, I moisturised + sunblock every day to protect it. My derm also prescribed some recovery soothing cream (forgot the name). May also have had a little bit of a steroid to reduce the inflammation. Have u seen a derma yet? I found mine on this website - Dr Colin Theng, very friendly and reasonably priced.
