Unhappy BACKACNE

I've had backacne for over 10 years now. I'm 25 and it's still not going away. I've never had acne problems on my face, so I was just grateful that it was on my back n not my face and figured it would go away with time/age. But now, I'm sick of it. I feel self-conscious about wearing tops that show my back. I've tried stridex pads and some topical creams but they don't help, just dry out my skin. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking of trying accutane. I wonder if there are any differences in treating backacne from facial acne.
