I'm a Black female and I've had back and chest acne since I've been a teenager. I have brown marks, plus a ton of red bumps on chest and back. I was thinking about using the back regimen. My back itches also. When I scratch some of the time, the bumps bleed or pop. Some are whiteheads while others are red. What do you recommend I use? TIA

I used to have really bad spots on my back and shoulders but found that using 10% benzoyl peroxide cream once a day calmed them a lot. Now i just have some tiny bumps but im fnding it hard getting hold of the cream now as amazon don't seem to have any just now :/
I also managed to associate a lot of my chest pimples with the deoderant I use. it took me ages to realise that using spray deoderant was causing it. Now ive switched to roll ons only and have seen a big decrease in my chest spots! I think I'll always be shy about showing my back or chest though.until they clear completely
May or may not help but hope it goes for you soon.

If the bumps are large and inflamed, I would consider trying Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo in case there's a component of pityrosporum folliculitis. Make sure to leave it on for at least 2 minutes before rinsing off.
If the bumps are small and non-inflamed, maybe something like Dan's AHA could help clear out any blocked pores.
