It was so long ago that I can't exactly recall if the cystic stuff came after the antibiotics... but I'm pretty sure I had it already. No I was not moisturizing my back... I don't remember it getting too dry, and I don't really remember my face getting terribly dry... but like I said, it was so long ago. Maybe I was on a lower dose?

I think body acne is more common than one may think. I think it depends on where in the world you live i.e colder climate, less skin exposure and warmer climate, more skin exposure. Whenever it's "warm" in the UK I always see people with body acne, that and other skin disorders like psoriasis. Also, when I travel to a hot climate again, I see people wearing skimpy clothing with body acne. I have persistant body acne and I always where shirts that cover my back/chest regardless of the weather.

I live in Arizona and so many people here have back acne even if its the only place they have it but no one seems too embarrassed enough to hide it, i even have it but mostly scaring i think its just the weather and all the sweating...
