In brief: No

Lactic acid is a normal by-product of muscle overload exercises or anaerobic exercise.
There are two types of soreness related to exercise. The first type is immediate soreness which you feel during or directly following exercise. The second type is delayed onset muscle soreness which you feel the day following training. There are a few solutions to cope with your sore muscles.
