Proactiv ruined my skin!
I tried this Proactiv 3-step system and it ruined my skin. Proactiv was the only products I was using, and I followed all the directions carefully and even tested it on my skin for few days to see if I had any allergic reactions that they said should happen right away, so my skin wouldn’t be ruined. I didn’t have any allergic reactions right away. It seemed like it was working for about a few weeks, but then all of sudden one night after I rinsed it off my skin started crack, peel, bleed, and burn so badly that I started screaming. I didn’t have any health insurance so I just stopped using the Proactiv products, hoping my skin would heal and go back to normal. I thought my skin did, but then with just water touching my face my skin started to burn, peel, crack, and bleed all over again. I didn’t understand why, I wasn’t using Proactiv anymore, but my skin is still freaking out like I am. Since I didn’t have any health insurance anymore, I did my own research online to see what was happening with my skin. My symptoms are the same with people suffering from chronic and severe Seborrheic Eczema, which is caused by an unknown irritant. Proactiv was the unknown irritant that caused my chronic eczema. The Proactiv was so harsh to my skin, it irritated my skin to the point that now it seems like my skin is allergic to water. I can only shower/bath once a day at the most. I can’t wash my face everyday anymore, because my skin gets too dried out from the water that it hurts my skin. I can’t go swimming anymore or my skin turns red and raw all over my body from being in too much water for too long. My skin is shedding like a snake on a daily basis now. And after my skin sheds I have these red rashes all over my face and scalp now. Even wind, sun, and rain makes my skin burn. When I start sweating on my face my skin just starts burning where the sweat is. I can’t wrap up my face or anything when I go outside when my skin is in pain to protect it because anything touching my face hurts. So I literally have to go everywhere with a umbrella. Just a slight temperature change of 10 degrees makes my skin flare up with chronic eczema, it’s not just the water. The red rashes appear, the cracking of my skin, peeling, and sometimes blood, then last of all the shedding of my skin like a snake. My skin aches so badly from all this I can’t even wear makeup or put really anything on my skin. I have really bad dandruff too, that is more like large scales that shower everywhere anytime I comb or brush my hair. Now my hair is breaking off and not growing because of my ruined scalp. My scalp gets so dry from this chronic eczema that somehow spread to my scalp that it hurts. It’s hard for me just to keep a job without looking like a diseased person. Which I now am thanks to Proactiv! Nothing out there can help heal my skin because it keeps coming back. My skin, hair, and life is now ruined by Proactiv. I warn anyone thinking about trying this product please really think about it and consider the side effects like I suffered! Please ask your dermatologists before using it, because this is like a prescription! It could ruin your skin and life! It may work for some people, but it definitely didn’t for me. It ruined my skin.I plan on sueing Proactiv from ruining my skin. I’m currently looking for a lawyer right now. Here is the link to my blog with pictures and video I made about how Proactiv ruined my skin.
