I used to get a glycolic peel + sulfur mask from my derm every two weeks and she specifically said that it was ok when I have active/popped acne. In fact, she has done some extraction just before. (20% glycolic)

I just tried a 50% glycolic peel from ebay myself as I plan to visit the derm only once a month and I have just a few active acne and it is going well so far (just neutralized it not 30 minutes ago)

Peels can help with clearing acne - they should be fine for you to do. Just make sure you go to a qualified professional (or are you planning to do these yourself?)
