Could changing acne products actually lead to rashes or more acne?

Sometimes: When you switch products for your acne, often you will experience a worsening of your acne until your skin has a chance to acclimatized to the new product. This can be frustrating. Also, most acne products are drying so switching products might mean you are now using something "more drying" than before. This would give you a reaction/rash. The key is to go slow when switching regimens. ...Read more

Not normal: Some people have local skin reactions with the use of a benzoyl peroxide. The red rash & swelling is not normal. I would stop the medication & call your doctor. As far as "marks" heal, it would depend on how bad the reaction is & how well you heal. Usually there shouldn't. ...Read more

Need doctor's help! Will mupirocin be used on acne and rashes?

Terrible choice: This is an over-the-counter antibiotic. It will do little for acne except encourage bacterial resistance; you should be using something scientific like topical benzoyl peroxide plus if needed prescription-strength medication from your physician. It's worse than useless for contact dermatitis, eczema, and if you self-treat an undiagnosed rash, you ignore possible serious illness at your own peril. ...Read more

It’s very irritating, it will worsen your condition. You may need a non-steroidal cream such as Protopic to reduce the flair up, then Aquafor as a moisture barrier. ...Read more
