oral meds question

I was wondering, does medication taken orally (such as antibiotics) target acne all over the body or just on the face and neck? the problem is I have terrible acne on both my back and face and would like all of it gone.

Yes, oral antibiotics will treat body acne as well as facial acne.

They affect the whole body. If you do end up taking antibiotics, don't do it for long period and follow it with a course of probiotics. My retarded derm put me on antibiotics for more than 4 years and now i have health problems because of it.
