acid on my face - I wash with Dove Nutrium and Neutrogena Body Clear Body Scrub. I figured that glycolic acid and
salicilic acid (Neutrogena body scrub) would be good ingredients to have on my product list since reading comments on this post
and other web sites on kp. But something in these products seems to be triggering an allergic reaction. I have dry, flaky skin and a rash
on my neck and it's starting on my face too. At firt, I thought it was eczema mixed in with kp, but my doctor says it's an allergic reaction.
I'm trying to figure out to what I could be allergic to. He says that food allergies are unlikely from what he saw.
I'm thinking it's probably the Neostrata products (I've never heard of Dove being harsh!)since I've been using them regurlarly on my
face and neck for weeks now. I don't get it though. NeoStrata is a highly recommanded line of products, dermatologist approved and glycolic acid is
supposed to help exfoliate! Anyone has had that experience with either NeoStrata or glycolic acid products? I can't think of anything else that I've
changed in my habits (except eating a whole lot of nectarines lately!) If anybody has a comment, suggestion or similar experience, please reply.

I tried the NeoStrata and was OK w/ it.It did not help either. But I had a really bad reaction to Differin, my skin looked burned. The kind of relly bad burn you get in the sun. I woke up like that and had to call out of work.
