Re: Back Acne and Chest acne!

I wish I can give you the answer to cure your acne, but here are tips that might help:

1. At your age, your acne is probably caused by testosterone, which is something out of your control for the most part.

2. Wash your skin with only your hands and not something like a washcloth. Don't overscrub either.

3. Try Dial (anti-bacteria) soap for a few weeks. (prob 2-3 weeks to see if it's working or not).

4. Don't take hot showers or very cold showers. Just take quick warm showers and that's it.

5. Make sure your t-shirts are 100% cotton. I guess that is supposed to help. look online for reasons why.

6. Eating well will definitely help in the long run!!!

Those are some basic tips to get you started. If it doesn't help, you may want to go to a derm. and get on something until or get something to apply to your skin.

Good luck and keep us posted ... you're not alone!

Re: Back Acne and Chest acne!

Mike the same thing happened to me.
I started to get alot of back and chest acne.
I tried alot of the body wash products with 2% Salicylic Acid.
It didn't really help.
The best product I tried was Doxycycline.
You got to get this prescribed by a Derm.
If you have no health insurance.
It costs 25 dollars at a pharmacist.
If you have health insurance, it will cost like 3 dollars.
Doxycycline totally cleared me of my body acne.
I got 100 MG.
One thing I will tell you.
When you first use it, your body has to get used to it.
I wouldn't take it on an empty stomach the first 3 days you take it.
After that you can take it on an empty stomach.
