So I'm finishing up my first week of AHA (started using AHA two days short of my 5th week) and I've been breaking out quite badly. The fist couple of days, I didn't noticed anything out of the ordinary and I only used 1/3 of the length of my index finger ( very thin line). Now, before using AHA, I made sure that I was already using the full amount of BP and it cleared me up quite well! My left side of my cheek stopped breaking out and my right cheek and chin were healing up after the initial breakout from the BP. However, a couple of days into the AHA, I started to breakout again EVERYWHERE. I mean like, old acne that went away by themselves started to swell up again. Is this normal? Usually, the pimples start out as flat red dots, then swell and become painful and then come to a head (which, unfortunately, sometimes I pop because there's so many of them!). Also, I noticed my neck is getting very dry and ....leathery? Is this normal? How long does it take for the initial breakout to stop? Please reply if you have any knowledge because I'm getting quite discouraged....

You made a good decision to stop the AHA. Dans benzoyl peroxide works to get rid of red marks it takes about a month and up to get rid of them all.
But don't focus on the red marks. Its better to have zero acive pimples and red marks then to have active pimples.
As long as your not breaking out clearskin is coming soon. I didn't even notice my red marks go away that's how quickly they went away for me. I used to have like hundreds all over my back.
