Re: Body Acne

txsu08, the Neutrogena body wash didn't work for me.
The Neutrogena body scrub with 2% SA is so much better then the Neutrogena body wash. Try that one.

Also, the Phisoderm Clear Confidence Acne BodyWash is great for body acne.
It has aloe, Chamomile, Vitamin E and 2% Salicylic Acid. Its an orange gel.
Here's what you do to make it work really good for body acne.
First I soak a bodywash spundge with water. Dont use a regular spundge. Then put some of the Phisoderm Acne BodyWash on the bodywash spundge. It should become bubbley. Once it foams up. I just take the foam part and put it on my back. The part of my back I cant reach with my fingers. I use the bodywash spundge to put on my back. Leave it on for 2 to 3 minutes. Then wash it off. I notice when you make it foam up, its makes the acne goes down with less scars.

A very good lotion for body acne is Paula’s choice Weightless Body Treatment. It has 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid and 2% Salicylic Acid.
You just leave the lotion on. You dont wash it off.
Just type in Paula’s choice Weightless Body Treatment in google.

If you go to a derm. The 2 best anti biotics for body acne are accutaine.
Thats ofcourse expensive.
Tetracycline which is much cheaper then accutaine is very good for body acne.
