breaking out on back and chest

I am breaking out on my upper back and on my chest and I dont know what to do. I had this problem before but went on Birth Control pills and it cleared up. Well I went off the Pill and a few months it started again and because of this went right back on the pill. Is it Hormonal??? I have been on the pill for about 2 months now and i am still having the problem. Maybe I need to be on them longer for it to clear up. Anyone have any suggestions? I do not break out on my face...thank god. I just dont get it.

Thanks in advance

Re: breaking out on back and chest

Salac by Medicis works great on body acne. I have been using it for many many years. I rarely find it over the counter, but you can ask your pharmacy to order it for prescription required. It is around $11 for 6 oz. VERY WORTH THE MONEY.

You want the wash, not the foam. And in the shower, use it as a wash with a bath scrub brush. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
