Blackheads on my chest and back

Hi guys, I'm getting blackheads on my chest and back
Is there any way to remove them?

Should I treat the blackheads on my chest and back the same way I treat the blackheads on my face with benzol peroxide and salicylic acid?

What facial masks can you guys recommend for anti blackheads?

Could u be mistaking the tiny hairs on your chest for blackheads?
I have some fair hair on my chest, which is just normal, I mean, we have hair everywhere! Sometimes if u look too closely at it, and analyse, u could maybe mistake it for blackheads.
If they are blackheads, I'm not sure what u could do sorry! Maybe talk to your doctor?

As for the ones on your back....again, ask the doctor.
Great beauty and virtue rarely dwell together.

you can use the same medications on your chest and back as on your face. you should do it at night, though. you don't want to get benzoyl peroxide on your clothes because of its bleaching properties. don't know if you have oily skin on your face, but if you do, chances are you have it on your back and chest too. it's good to make sure you don't wear the same shirt more than once without washing it because it will only aggravate your skin condition.
if you check out the acne section of this site, you'll probably find a lot of helpful info.

take care
