I've heard washing with Head and Shoulders also is helpful for back acne. You could also try black soap body wash for a more natural approach. I use black soap as a face wash and prefer it over all the others.
Also, if you don't like to mess with BP, try spot treating with glycolic acid. Glycolic acid is what I use to keep acne away. If I have a spot coming up, I simply apply some directly to the spot. I find the spots retreat within a day or two and normally do not even ever come to a head. I use a 12% gel formula, but Acne.org's formula should be adequate for the back.
No regimen is one-size-fits-all. You are unique and so is your skin.
Black soap - Lumiplexion Salicylic Acid ~ Lumiplexion SPF 30 ~ Lumiplexion moisturizer
Black soap ~ Lumiplexion Glycolic Acid 12% (3-4x week) ~ Lumiplexion Hydroquinone 1-2x week
Lumiplexion enzyme mask / sulfur mask / moisturizing mask 1-2 week as needed
