Milk Thistle now acne on back?

Well have had had facial acne for years and years and never had more than a few noticable spots on my body at once.

Well I recently have been travelling and I noticied that I was getting little spots (maybe 10) over my chest. They have since stopped forming (hopefully). I think this was due to different washing detergent that I was using or the different brand of body soap bar.

Couple of weeks later I started taking Milk Thistle 3 times a day for first 2 days and then 2 times a day since. Well a few days later I noticed after getting out of the shower that I had a few pimples on my back and have since gotten a few more and smaller red spots/marks. Also got 2 on my right arm.

Now I have since changed to a sensitive skin detergent and have stopped taking the milk thistle today.

Thing that is strange is that I would have expected a rash if it was the detergent (instead of really small spots). So could have been the soap which I didn't use on my back and I didn't notice getting spots on my back untill after taking Milk Thistle.

Damn this is annoying cause I didn't have this problem back home. Why after years of having facial acne would my acne now decide to shift down to my back...if that is the case?

Different part of the world with different brands of products Fu**ing sucks!

Any thoughts???
