Try using the PC 2% Beta Hydroxy Liquid from Skin Care Solutions I got the spray pump attachment so I could just spray it on since I can't reach my back. Its helped my back stay clear for a few months now.

Starting to look great.

I would probably suggest that you, who's obviously an athletic person that works out alot, to remove all of your clothes that are cotton blends and instead use synthetic fiber clothes. When you exercise the skin releases sweat , oil and dirt that becomes trapepd in the cotton and held next to your skin. This will create pore blockages that eventuelly turn into pimples.

If you use this tip and then have a quick shower and cleanse before workout, you will remove most of the dirt and some of the oil.

I wish you the best of luck, keep us updated.

Hey sandwo, I know its fall, but next summer try doing wut i did. My backne was as bad as yours only on a smaller scale near my shoulders and and upper back.

Go to the beach for one day, a 12 hour day, put on no suntan lotion, and let your back crisp. Try going where no one is if u feel self-conscious like me. I did this and all of my pimples shriveled up, and dried out so fukin much. After that, it kept getting better and better for each beach visit. I literally had no pimples, and one noticeable scar from doing this, by the end of the summer. Trust me, it works!

At least it looks like it is steadily improving!

What you have all over your upper back I have in a small area right in the small of my back at the spine...except they are surface scars and they will fade over time. I have spots all over my back but they aren't as red or as large.. it's mostly on my shoulders but H&S surprisingly is getting rid of the scars!

Have you tried H&S yet?

Darling, can't you see it's now or never

defenetly understand what you are saying, i also have back acne since i was 18 now im 32 and just did not go away, so i decided to finaly go and se a dermatologist and he placed me on (minocycline) for 3 months she was going to give me something more stronger than that but she decided to start me off with minocycline to see how my body reacts to it, so i will go back in 3 months and see whats up and see how my back is doing.

i posted my pics if you wish to see them, so you are not alone, but by looking at your new pic it looks like your back is clearing up, hope mine does also.

I wonder if a natural approach might help , such as using kiss my face olive oil soap to shower and then use some pure jojoba oil to rub on after you take a shower , all of the people I talk to said that it is supposed to take care of acne and many other skin ailments, basically it balances the skin and is also somewhat of an anti bacterial product . It might be worth a try:)

sincerely ,

I can attest to this. When I take long breaks from working out, my skin settles down. But when I start working out again, ouch. I don't think it is testosterone. Working out doesnt increase it (yes, proven) but there are a ton of other things that your body goes through when you distress your muscles. Prostoglandins go through the roof and cause inflammation. Blood vessels dilate. Your blood becomes more acidic due to the buildup of lacic acid. etc...

I'm wondering if vitamin A is the link.

Most diets are incredibly devoid of vitamin A, and we're told (wrongly), that vitamin A in 'high' doses isn't safe..

But most primitive diets were high in vitamin A from animal foods. Today, we don't consume any organ meats, so our diet is low in vitamin A. However, primitive cultures always consumed lots of vitamin A.

When you're working out, your body is using up vitamin A stores for protein synthesis, thus depleting your body of vitamin A over time, and lessening the amount for your skin.

This is just a theory of mine, but it makes sense.

sorry.. i havn't been on this website for a long time now .. due to school and other stuff

well.. after i realized i had SEVERE ACNE and NO over-the-counter products would work.. ( by that time it was too late) i went to get laser on my back .

my laser treatmets ended like i think 2 months ago. and now my back is like this. hopefully it will continue to improve?

- i shall try the beach idea one day . but rite now im too insecure too take off my clothes in public

- i shall try the H & S idea

- after my laser treatments.. my acne is now currently under control i think lol . so now im using a combination of a lighting cream (night ) to get rid of the red marks + an anti-wrinkle cream (morning) to like smooth out my skin yea thats it :)

any more advice on how to improve my skin would be appreciated

- oh yea and im thinkin about getting laser treatments designed for wrinkles ? YES???!?! NO!??!?! .
