Does salicyclic acid cause an intial breakout?

Yes, in some it does.

It didn't for me as I'd already gone through the purging process with B5 and BP by the time I'd started using it.

for the most part yes. anything with exfoliating properties has the potential to cause an initial breakout/"purge" as people call it.

bp should not cause an initial breakout though

umm, pretty much every single new thing you try will have an initial breakout (if it has active ingredients -- like BP or Salicylic Acid)..

But everyone is different!
