AHA increases cell turnover, and also can be irritating. Maybe it is brining latent acne to the surface while causing some excess irritation. It's okay to stop it until your skin calms down! Don't panic, we're all here for ya!

Unfortunately some people do (many do not) experience an initial breakout with AHA use until their skin gets used to it! As the above poster advises, I'd stop AHA until things calm down again. Maybe start slower next time. Are you using Dan's AHA+?? 

Hang in there! :comfort:

Are you using it everyday? 
Every time I abuse AHA, I get my face in a miserable state.
If you're like me, try doing it like once a week and if you have a pimple, dab it just a little on it.
And for now, stop using it for a while, until your face calms down.

Hope your skin recovers in time for spring break! :)
