Hi Guys, Does Benzoyl Peroxide Leave Acne Red Marks?

I just started to use Benzoyl Peroxide cleanser ( Not topical gel Benzoyl Peroxide that sit on your face for a day, just cleanser that I wash off) followed up by a Salicylic Acid Moisturizer and I'm just wondering if Benzoyl Peroxide leaves behind acne red marks so I can stop using it if it does, because I already have a lot of acne red marks on my face at the moment.

Thank you !

Most (not all) people on this board using Dan's regimen (and hence BP) report that BP does lead to slower healing of red marks.

Well, I had red marks before starting this, so I'm not sure. But, I'm very prone to red marks, so I would rather get my acne in control as fast as possible, instead of getting more red marks + having zits all over my face.

Though, the BP does seem to calm down the redness of my skin. I don't know if it's just me or what :P. But it doesn't look like my red marks are fading slower than before starting.
