I've been using BP, aha and bha for years for my acne and emu oil for red marks. This week i decided to try a 1:1 acv: water tonic for a relatively recent but stubborn red mark. I apply it with a q-tip for about 2 mins on one red spot to try it. The first 2 times went ok but today, i noticed the qtip was turning red and my red mark started bleeding a little. I found it odd since it's not like i was rubbing hard or anything. Of course i stopped and put some emu oil on it to calm the sting. I was wondering if other people experienced this ?

yes, i had this happen to me about two weeks ago. for a couple of days, your mark will appear more dark and noticeable, but don't fret. it took about a week for my mark to get back to normal, because it scabbed up and eventually just flaked off by itself. aloe vera gel helps :)
