Re: back, chest, and arm acne

Believe it or not, I've been using Head and Shoulders shampoo as a body scrub and I've noticed a great improvement. H&S has pyrithione zinc in it, which I read was supposed to be good for the skin. (Actually, I read that on this board). I'm also using Tazorac cream on my body.

Give the H&S a try - if it doesn't work, you can alwasy use it as shampoo and it's only $3 -

Re: back, chest, and arm acne

i think Clearasills Body Care Treatment would probably work, i dont find body acne to be so persistant, but maybe thats just me, some sort of BP body wash usually sorts me out, then again i dont really get spots anymore..just stupid annoying scarring which i take too seriously, thing is, when people get their active acne in check, they still have the scarring there, sure it can be covered up, but how i wish i could go out of the door withouit being paranoid about my one or two scars, anyway yeah some sort of BP/Salyclic Acid Compound should work well for body acne, i found Clearasills to be very useful, they are geniune and their stuff does work.
Prometheus is really cool, so is sweetjade, they all know theyre stuff and have given me ever growing confidence with acne.

Re: back, chest, and arm acne

I used dial (the gold bar). It cleared up all me chest arm and back acne. It even got rid of the marks on my chest and arms. Still having trouble clearing the marks on my back. It clear up in a month. I used Neutragena body clear scub and lotion it didn't work a bit. Aveeno body lotion doesn't hurt.

Re: back, chest, and arm acne

I used to have this problem, but it disappeared when I switched to a good old-fashioned bath brush and plain old soap.
