I used to use Dial Antibacterial followed by a more soothing wash or even a moisturizer as the Dial is rather harsh.

You might consider using something like Cetaphil Sensitive Skin Antibacterial Bar. It foams up nicely, cleans deliciously, and even slightly moisturizes the skin without stripping the skin of its emollients. I personally really like it. A lot. biggrin.gif I also use a back scrubber that's gentle so I can really get all of my back nice and clean. A small amount of exfoliation really does help, too. I find that using a baby's hair brush (gently!) helps out my whole body.

Another thing that might help is going to an esthetician who has experience with acne prone skin and getting regular extractions (even on your back!), some chemical peels, and treatment topicals. It might get expensive, but really good clinics can make a big difference.

Take responsibility for your health; read the full prescribing information for any medication you take and understand that not all risks or potential side effects will likely ever be fully known.

You might try the mandelic cleanser/shampoo by Vivant (go to betterhealthyskin.com to order it). Mandelic is both antibacterial and antifungal (both of which can be the source of body breakouts). The cleanser can be used as a body cleanser or a shampoo (for scalp acne or dandruff). The cleanser is also much more gentle than any of the dandruff shampoos that people use for body acne.


A.M.

-Face Reality Sensitive Skin Cleansing Gel
-Finacea
-MD Formulations AOX Hydrating Gel and/or MD Formulations AOX Lotion (on drier areas)
-Mix a few drops of Niacinamide Gel with Face Reality's SPF 30 for Acne Prone Skin

P.M.

-Face Reality Silica scrub
-Derm A Gel 2 out of 3 nights, PTR Unwrinkle Peel Pads every 3rd night
-Mix Face Reality Hydrating Emulsion with Metazine Niacinamide Gel
-Face Reality's 2.8% BPO (chin only).

I don't think the wash is too pricey. The Vivant mandelic toner isn't too bad either (and it does come in a decent size bottle). The serums are rather expensive though!

I have posted this many times, Neutrogena Body Wash worked for me. I tried many things, I had terrible bacne. I used this after seeing my gf used it, and in about a month or so, maybe a bit longer, I was acne free on my body, with the exception of a few pimples on my chest, but rarely. I have posted this many times and a lot of people ignore this. I suffered badly from body acne, and this was the only thing that worked for me. It takes time though, and make sure to use a body loofa thing.
The man who lives in ignorance is not the fool, but the one whom looks at that ignorance as being blissfull, he is the true fool.
