Benzoyl peroxide IS exfoliating - it's a chemical exfoliant, but I'm assuming you're asking if you should use a mechanical one like a scrub or something? Personally I don't think you need to - scrubs can be irritating and cause more problems than they solve, and using the BP should be all the exfoliating you need. But if you do want to do something more to exfoliate (I would suggest doing it only if you find you have a lot of dead skin on your face, otherwise you really don't need to), get a very gentle scrub without harsh abrasive particles, or use a baby washcloth (they're kind of hard to find, but they're tiny and a lot gentler than regular washcloths, so a lot less irritating).
