There's tons of factors that could cause bacne, such as excessive sweating, hormone imbalance, wearing too tight clothes or clothes that don't allow the back to 'breathe', irritation from fabrics such as wool, too much hair on the back, dirt and oil that blocks pores, etc etc etc. it's hard to pinpoint what causes your bacne exactly because it could be caused by several factors...

to stop bacne from occuring, it's best to wear clothes that allow the the skin to breathe and clean your back regularly with body wash that are suitable for acne prone skin. I've also heard that ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) suppose to work wonders for the marks left from bacne, and as for the scars...better ask the other experts on this board!

Hi Janero,

I found that conditioning my hair was a cause and when I stopped that it partly helped, but Dan's AHA+ with his body buddy did the trick completely. And I struggled with it from my late teens through my 40's. Not fun, but glad to have finally solved the problem.
