These products are under investigation as they can cause dangerous allergic reactions, so be very leery of what you put on your face for acne.

Always test a product out with a small dab on your wrists and if the smell makes you sick there's probably a good chance your allergic to it...This is true for lotions/potions and perfumes always tests on a wrist with a very small amount of product and leave it on for awhile because some allergic responses do not occur right away...and keep benadryl handy...

This is a new news report and might be on the TV soon...(about the acne products)

Thanks for information but I only use dove soap and now just purex washing detergent and dryer sheets. I also use kerri lotion in the shower.

I am sorry to read about your having RA and not being able to see a doctor.

I have what is considered severe arthritis and that is bad enough. Understand that RA is even worse.

Well take care Chartreux.

I have IBS D, used proactiv for three or four days and in the following two and a half months had the worst time of my life. Stomach pains and horrible diarrea. That was this past winter, and stomach still isn't in good shape.

Thank you for this information! Perfect timing because I was just thinking about buying proactiv but I have been having lots of issues with allergies lately.
