I applied some topical acne creams that contain benzoyl peroxide, and my acne has gotten all red and it looks like a burn, how do I get red of it fast?

In brief: Stay the course

Starting benzoyl peroxide with fairly severe acne often does this.
Ask your physician whether adding an antibiotic or spironolactone would be in order
