You could always use SimpleCV for anything that has to do with image analyzing and processing. If you have read Programming Computer Vision with Python and loved the idea of image processing with python I would suggest reading Practical Computer Vision too.

What you want to do can be done in various ways. The main problem is that acne color is pretty close to skin color so feature detection will have some difficulties finding it out. For start you could use the findBlobs function with acne color in mind and eliminate some blobs that their area is too big or too small to be acne. To find the differences you could compare the lists of blobs produced by the two images by their size or the area of each blob. Have a look here:

You could, although probably depends on your setup. Since acne is probably very relevant to color (red & pink hues) you would probably need make sure things like environment stays pretty consistent, which maybe hard with things like a webcam since they try to do things like auto-exposure. I'm not saying it's not possible, but that would be a condition you would have to deal with regardless of what vision library you use. SimpleCV should be more than capable of doing this type of application though.
