I have been suffering with acne n my upper back and shoulders on and off for 2 years with the past cycle never going back off (6 mos) I tried a billion chemical and natural bacne cures and nothing worked. At first I thought the vinegar cure was working, but it stalled out around day 10 and my bacne got worse again. the bacne was destroying my self confidence, and I was despereate to find a cure.

Then I got to a forum talking about using head and shoulders shampoo (classic clean) to treat bacne. Its the shampoo that I use normally, so with nothing to lose I gave it a shot and it yield miraculous results. After 6 days I am 100% clear

But how does it work? Head and shoulders CLASSIC CLEAN shampoo (you have to use the classic) contains zinc pyrothine which can be extremely effective fir many people in curing bacne.

I washed my back gently with a bath sponge and h&s in the shower twice per day (don't leave it on) and allowed my back to air dry before continuing about my day.

Be warned, it can be vey drying and may get a little itchy but it is vital to not touch your back or apply lotion until after the active bacne has cleared.

This has been my miracle and I hope it can help those who gave given up on finding a cure. smile.gif

yup, good to hear someone else discovered this too

the reason head and shoulders works is because it has Pyrithion Zinc, which promotes dead skin to sloth off

however, an even better option is Selenium Sulfide, which promotes dead skin to sloth off AND slows down skin cell turnover (2 in 1!)

(you'll notice that Head and Shoulder "Intense" uses selenium sulfide rather than the pyrithion zinc in "Classic" for the reason above)

If you research online, you'll find that the most effective shampoo for this is not Head and Shoulders Intense, rather, it is Selsun Blue Medicated, which has 1% selenium sulfide (as do the other versions, meaning that it does not have to be the Medicated version, just make sure that it has Selenium Sulfide as the active ingredient because the normal version of Selsun Blue uses Pyrithion Zinc)

There's also this new Selsun Blue Deep Cleansing version.. I don't know much about it, but it could be even better than the medicated version as it seems to have scrubbing beads in it

There are 3 even more powerful options, Selsun Blue 2.5%, which has 2.5% selenium sulfide, which i think is overkill (note that selenium sulfide absorbs into your body and that it is a potentially harmful chemical), and it costs more per volume than the other Selsun Blue products, some other thing that I forgot the name to because it was ridiculously expensive, and a prescription one that is also very expensive.

Selsun Blue Medicated is just a bit more expensive than Head and Shoulders, but I'd say that it's definitely worth it! (I noticed a difference when I switched from Head and Shoulders to Selsun Blue)

Another reason it works (I thought it was the primary reason) is that the Zinc inhibits the growth of fungi and bacteria(that's how it gets rid of dandruff). I heard that a lot of body acne is caused by skin fungus.

H&S could work for face acne, but it's pretty harsh stuff. I mistakenly left it on overnight once and got a chemical burn!

No it would be too harsh and drying for the face. I only have mild facial acne and 2% salicylic acne scrub keeps me clear.

Just adding my two cents!

I have had moderate bacne for 15 years.  Since puberty, there has RARELY been ONE SINGLE DAY where my back skin is perfectly clear... That is ALOT of sundresses I've missed out on!!! 

I have never had any acne on my face, nor anywhere else on my body, but my upper back has always been rough and grainy feeling, usually with one or two inflamed pimples.  Sometimes the pimples are deep, cyctic and painful. 

I have only ever managed a bit of success in keeping my back skin in okay shape... Never smooth and lovely, but sometimes presentable through salicylic acid scrub.

That was until I read about H&S... What the hell, I thought. 

I have used Head and Shoulders for a shampoo before and found it GAVE me flakes, so I was pretty skeptical....

BUT, I started using it on my hair and back, leaving it on for 2 minutes, and rinsing. 

Within 5 days, my back was 75% clear, and silky smooth to the touch. 

Within a month, my hair is shiny and my scalp feels great, and best of all, I have had no sign of acne!  After FIFTEEN YEARS of consistent acne! 

I just want to spread the word...
