Started using Obagi and I have serious side effects.
Obagi

I am at day two of using the Obaji system to correct a hyperpigmentation problem. I am a hispanic male with fairly dark skin. I developed a very big rash on each side of my face that is hot to the touch and burns along with tiny white bumps. I understand that some level of irritation is caused by this system and it can last some time but should this be happening so soon? Most people claim to experience side effects after a week or so of using these products and I am at day two and can't go to work because my face looks and feels horrible. Please help!!

THANK YOU!!!

This is not a normal reaction, I recommend you stop using it and contact your doctor.

You should always use prescription products, such as obagi, under a doctors supervision, as careful follow up in the initial few days is important.
