Not exactly, it's just that BP makes it burn more easily where you are using it because it tends to take the top layer of skin of that tends to help you avoid burning.

But it's not necessarily "OH SHIT."

Also, it may tend to irritate where you have burnt it if you apply it there afterwards.

On the upside, in the short term sunlight is anti-acne in and of itself, so if you keep the area completely clean and dry you might do ok, acne-wise. But in the long term sunlight damages skin and encourages acne (if anything).
