That's the only real problem I've experienced while using Differin. It helps to get rid of the acne, but the scars and red marks take a very long time to heal/disappear. Eventually they do go away, but depending on the severity of the lesion, it can take weeks to months.
Sometimes I'm very tempted to use an alpha hydroxy acid lotion during the day because I know it will accelerate the process, but I don't because it can be overly irritating. While it'll get rid of the marks and help with the scars, it'll also cause new lesions to develop.
The only advice I can give you is to not pick and/or pop existing acne, don't do anything rash or undirected in terms of treatment, and do your best to wait it out. Waiting is definitely one of the drawbacks while using Differin.
Try to stay positive!
