Discussions that mention benzaclin

Acne board


hi i have had backne for a year or so now and i've tried dozens of different things but no matter what it won't go away!! i don't have food allergies. i saw a derm and he was baffled he didn't know what to do about it. my physician didn't even know if it was acne or a rash!! (i have 1 or 2 big zits, and dozens of small red bumps...) strange my face is almost flawless but my back and chest...eww...what should i do? don't have the $ or time to see another doctor, i'm vegan so most mainstream cleansers are NOT okay...here is a sample of what i've tried:

-prescription "benzaclin" gel that made all my black clothes orange :(
-sleeping w/tea bags taped to my back
-that pink drying lotion in the tiny bottle that you aren't supposed to shake
-benzoyl peroxide
-stridex pads
-switching laundry detergent
-eliminating acrylic/fishnet for a while
-switching shampoo/conditioners several times [could 1 of these be my problem?]
-dermafina [bad, i know, but i wasn't vegan a year ago!]
-and much more...

this is really, REALLY bad, most of it is on my lower neck / upper-upper back, so it SHOWS...and...i have a date coming up...help!!
