Hey All!

So for the past year or two, I've had this really bad acne all around my shoulder blades to my upper arm area which I suspect is partially due to my heavy backpack. It sort of looks like this (https://encrypted-tb...2kdEeXRHFY4eNHI) and is in that general area. I do take hot showers in the morning daily and use a salycic acid scrub on my shoulders. However this does not seem to help. Does the board have any ideas of what this is or what I could do to aid in making it go away? Some have suggested a hot shower to open pores then to soak under cold water to close them back up. However I would appreciate any suggestions!

Thanks in advance guys!

Many members have had luck using dandruff shampoo as a body wash. Something about the shampoo being specifically designed to even out skin flakeage. I mean to try it one of these days - I get breakouts of the back of my neck and shoulders all the time.

The condition in that picture looks rather severe. Have you ever been to a dermatologist? IMO you should.
