Post Acne on body

Help!!

I recently visited a dermatologist who told me that the acne I get on my body is caused by sweat and that there is nothing I can do to get rid of it. Sometimes it's not so bad but lately I've been getting it bad on my arms, legs and butt - my face is totally clear and has always been that way. On my legs alone I counted 30 or so pimples. I live in a warm climate but take extra care to avoid excess sweating. I shower twice daily and scrub with exfoliating wash but nothing is helping and now it's just getting too much.

Surely there must be either a body wash that works or some medicine I can take? Tests from lab came back saying no bacteria present in the pimples, so I guess it's not anything bad then.

BTW I'm 31 years old and healthy, very athletic so it's not as though I live like a slob!

Please, someone help!

I used to have a problem with acne on my back and my dermatologist suggested that I try Selson Blue which is for dandruff. It is medicated so it doesn't smell so great, but boy did it work for me!!! I also have a couple of friends who tried it and said it was also successful for them. It is worth a try!! Good luck!!

Do they sell it at Walgreens?

I'll give it a shot, I'm ready to try anything. How long before you noticed a difference?

Thanks a lot.

Head and Shoulders is working for me, after about 3 weeks it was about 50% better. Selsun blue is the same thing I believe.

Best of luck!

Go out and buy Phisoderm Clear Cofindence Body Wash. Also buy herbal logix all over blemish control body spray or Natures Cure body Spray. Wash twice a day with Phisoderm Body wash with a puff were you have acne. Then at night time after your shower when your all dried off spray on one of the sprays i suggested. Let it dry for about 15 to 20 minutes!
I do this every day and i am totally clear! I use to have horrible chest acne and back acne. I could never wear low cut shirts or tank tops but now i can! I do sometimes maybe get a zit on my back but ntohing compared to what it used to be thank God!

I bought my Selsun Blue at Wal-Mart. It is around $ 8 per bottle and I noticed a difference within about a week!!

Good Luck!

Re: Acne on body

Hi Sugarbaby,

I am 28 asian male from Malaysia. I suffered from body acne for many many years and still looking for the right medication.
I checked out the herbal logix / nature's cure stuff from the net and quite interested to try. But does the company ship its product to Malaysia?

Are you sure its really acne u have on your body- I had lots of red bumps show up on my body a few yrs ago and thought that it was acne also- even had some that looked like white heads u know the kind u get on your face from real acne. Started using all kinds of body washes for acne or bar soap containing BP but had no luck- went to the doctor he says i had what they call winter itch that has been going around in dry climate areas - there is a presciption u can get for it or u can simply buy a body moistureizer to apply after u shower that will clear things up after a week or two-
