Yes BP can inflame your skin in the early stages, which may contribute to acne increase. Keep going for several months and make sure your applying it exactly as dan suggests.

yes dude it is normal it gets worse before its gets better, give it 3-4 weeks you should see good improvement, btw its called an initial breakout.
