Red spots plus Active acne

My question is....

What can I do to get rid of some of the old red spots left from previous acne? In the same matter, I still have some active acne, so would the treatments for the red spots interfere with the active acne?

Thanks for any help.

The best thing is to exfoliate. For the previous person, what people mean when they say exfoliate is to use acids (glycolic, salicylic acids) to take away the dead layers of skin. This will help both your red spots and you current acne.
