Pimples getting bigger from SA, but no news one appear - good or bad?

I started using BHA (2% SA) and my pimples started becoming bigger as if stuff should be coming out of them soon, but not many new ones appeared. Is this a good sign? Is this what's called purging?

Yes. SA causes your skin to 'shed'(there is a better word for it but I forgot it) the dead skin and will make it seem like the bump is 'growing'. SA will speed up the 'turnover' rate of your skin and helps to prevent dead skin build up. I really like the stuff.
