thank you for using health care magic,
well some time acne treatment can cause initial flare up.. initial gel which you apply on acne can cause irritation to skin and can increase .. thats normal .. continue benzyl peroxide.. it takes at least month for its full effect..
you can also use clindamycin gel, you can take oral form of isotretinoine (vitamin A). take doxycyclin 100mg once a day for 30 days..
change your diet, do not take oily spicy and fatty food.. avoid pollution..
for acne scar you can go for chemical peeling is little expensive but chemical peeling, chemical is applied to your skin which removes old skin and helps in growth of new skin hence your scar mark will go away..

Thanks for writing.

Acne treatments can cause flare up of acne for some days.

This problem will subside with time.You can continue this treatment.

You can just add clindamycin gel in your treatment .Apply it at day time.

Remember treating acne requires patience ,so do not loose hope and continue with treatment.

Hope this will solve your problem.Take care.
