Acne on stomach???

Has anyone here ever had acne eruptions on thier stomach area (or directly below their chest area)?

I have recently noticed a small it acne or folliculitis or???

Any insight would be appreciated.

Re: Acne on stomach???

it's possible to get acne basically anywhere...i would reccomend using whatever topicals you use on your face. with body breakouts, i especially like to use a 10% benzoyl peroxide solution, because it seems it is more tolerable on the body than on the face.

Re: Acne on stomach???

I get them too, always ABOVE my navel, never below, just below the creases where my breasts start, and below my sternum.

I think they're ingrown hairs though, or some other kind of follicle thing because (in my case) they can have a hair in them, and the sebum is usually hard, and seed-like. And the scars take MONTHS to heal and go away there.

I think it's follicular in nature, but I also think that most of my acne anyway is follicular in nature in terms of how it erupts.
