Treatment for back acne??

As of lately I've been getting terrible break outs on my back and can't seem to find a cure! My normal body wash isn't cutting it soooo I need some suggestions! 

Re: Treatment for back acne??

@bleedconfidence Neutrogena has some nice, inexpensive body washes.  You can also check for rec's.  


I think you should treat body acne the same way you would treat acne on your skin.  So, gentle liquid cleanser, BHA (I only rec Paula's Choice) and spot treat with Persa-gel (remember that benzoyl peroxide products bleach clothing/sheets).  If you are still struggling, I rec seeing a derm.


BICers also gently remind people to wash skin *after* washing off conditioner in the shower - not the other way around.


Best of luck!
