Common Questions and Answers about Back and chest acne treatment


Avatar m tn I have suffered from face, chest and back acne for about 13 months now & it has gotten to the stage where I hate looking into the mirror because my acne stands out and makes me extremely self conscious. I've tried multiple treatments that people recommended, face marks and natural home remedies but I haven't noticed any dramatic changes. HELP!!!!

Avatar n tn I had horrible ance all over in the beginning and now I'm 30 weeks and it's coming back! Be careful when using products and check with your doc on what's safe. I found out a yr ago that I'm allergic to benzoyl peroxide. Good thing I wasn't pregnant at the time.
Avatar f tn I seriously feel like a 15 year old boy working the grease fryer at a fast food joint! It's all over my face, on my chest, and over halfway down my back. It has gotten better at some points throughout my pregnancy but it has also become really bad! Hope you don't have the same expierence I've had with it!
Avatar f tn ( Closest to perfection I got was putting tea tree oil on blemishes. The bit on my back and chest cleared up for most part.
Avatar f tn Never really dealt with acne as a teen. In my 20's I had a problem with acne on my beck and chest. And now in my late 30's on my face YUCK!. Anyhow what I discovered works great on the back and chest is dandruff shampoo. I think it's the zinc in it. I remember reading something years ago. Anyhow I tried it and it really does work. I use head and shoulders for my body wash. Vey rarely I get a pimple on my back, chest, shoulder ect. I use to have tons. Hated summer .
Avatar m tn While I've never considered myself, nor have other people, to be unattractive, the recent development of acne on my face, back, and chest have recently changed, at least my, person opinion about my physical appearance. While my face is more managable than my back and chest, they're all bad and I feel like I'm running out of options. I'm currently using pro-active which is able to, at best keep it under control, to the point where its still obviously visible but not completely distracting.

1348938 tn?1276672434 I was dealing with acne on my back and chest and that has diminished about 80 to 90 percent. To control my acne I used face wash with 10% benzoyl peroxide on my face, back, and chest. Now I only use it on my face. I also had to shower every day, or I would break out. I still shower every day, but if I skip a day I do not break out. At this point I plan to use apple cider vinegar externally and internally for health and my skin.
Avatar n tn hi i am 29 now. before 4 years i got a small acne on my chest and it became big now it is like a overgrowth on skin, now it is 4cm long and 3 cm wide. doctor suggested to get operated.
Avatar n tn He is in his second week of therapy. The acne on his chest has cleared by 50%..on his back about the same. His face has broken out to new heights. I called and the dermo office says this is expected and that almost always tends to become a bit worse before better. I have read on this forum that it is not the case. Can you clarify? My sons confidence is at such a low. He wants to give up because he said it is making it worse. It is heart wrenching to see your child go thru this.
Avatar f tn And as I get older it seems to get worse and occur in more and more areas of my body. Including face,neck, chest, shoulders, back,breasts (including arolar area), pelvic area. And legs but that maybe just ingrown hairs. The last time I went to the doctor they wanted me to start acutane but its really scary if u read about it.
Avatar f tn In the last month, they've spread to cover my entire chest, upper arms(down to short sleeve length), and upper back pretty solidly. This past week, its spread to my lower back and upper butt, and the top of my stomach. I went to a dermatologist, and he diagnosed me with prurigo, gave me a prescription for some cream and told me to use sarna. Didn't explain what it was, nothing, so I looked it up when I got home - I do not believe that is what I have.
Avatar m tn Hello, Back and shoulder acne are quite difficult to treat compared to acne on other parts of the body. Thoroughly wash your body everyday, especially the back and shoulder part using a back brush and frequently change your bed sheet, as it is conducive for bacterial growth. Engage in a diet that is low in sugar and fat but is rich in vitamins. This prevents acne by preventing the buildup of excess oil on the skin. Also refrain from touching or squeezing your shoulder acne.
Avatar f tn I'm starting to think it might be a food allergie but I haven't changed my diet. Would acne appear only on my chest and my back if I had a food allergie?
Avatar m tn These are unlikely to be acne vulgaris, which commonly occurs on the face, chest and back. It is easy to get a bacterial or fungal infection in the genital area and this is not the same as an STD. Best Wishes, Eloise.
Avatar n tn I heard this decease is coming by only sex I am a bachelor until this time I didn't do the sex yet and I didn't receave any blood also Sir from my childhood(13years old) to I have one skin problem,toomuch pimpils,acnes in my face,both shoulder, chest and back. I used so meny creams and treated meny times in a long period (doxicycline,tectracycline and apply sckinrone,diffregen,delaciln-t) during the treatment time it will gone and again coming, still also Iam suffuring toomuch.
Avatar n tn For the past two years, (I'm now 25) it's gotten bad again, with flare ups on my back, shoulders, chest and face. The problem is that I've been on so many different treatments. I am still on the same birth control prescribed at 16, Diane 35, and for a long time it helped control it. I've been on probably half a dozen different topical meds, orals like tetracycline and I' ve been on Accutane on three separate occasions. It's here that I get frustrated.
Avatar n tn Shortly after going on the Minocyclin, I started to experience severe headaches and insomnia, so I discontinued treatment. I am still using Differin gel. Although the initial cheek eruption seems to have improved somewhat, the acne has "moved" to other areas of my skin, including my forehead, cheeks, and jawline. Now my doctor has prescribed 800 MG of Erythromycin/day, plus continuation of the Differin Gel.
Avatar n tn Those two together have worked wonders for my skin. I've been using them for a couple of years now on my face, neck and back and chest and I love it. Although things got worse before they got better but it was worth it to me.
Avatar f tn Hi m 23 yrs old female.....i have severe acne on my face and medium acne on my chest and back.....i m taking treatment since 5 months but my acne not cleared what should i do for the acne and their scars???
Avatar m tn Pimples on the chest and shoulders are usually acne. I don't know why you're worried about MRSA, and don't see why you should be. I advise you to cleanse with benzoyl peroxide--available without prescription--and that you consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn I recently stopped taking birth control and now I have acne on my face, neck, chest, and back. Can anyone recommend an herb or something that would conteract what my body is missing?
