Hyper Pigmentation And Sweating

16 July 2013 - 11:28 AM

Hi guys. So I've had a lot of back acne before, but it's starting to clear up, leaving behind at least 30 spots of hyperpigmentation. Soccer camp started last week, and I've been out sweating like crazy (and i sweat A LOT) for 2 hours everyday. Since the beginning of camp, I am 100% sure that my hyperpigmentation has gone down. Some of you might say the tan i'm getting is disguising it, but that's not the case. The skin itself isn't red anymore. Anyone know why? I was thinking it was because sweating allows the toxins to exit the skin. 

Tension Is The Cause Of My Back Acne

16 May 2013 - 10:02 PM

I've recently noticed that right after I do bench press, the part of my shoulder blade that is feeling most of the pressure develops at least 3 new pimples. The pimples are pink, hard, and underneath the skin. Normally, there will be none that will grow there. It's only on the days I bench press. I don't know what to do. I'm not going to stop weight lifting or doing bench press, but I don't know understand why my skin decides to create a pimple from the pressure. It's never done that before and it only started 6 months ago. 


Btw, i'm a 17 year old guy.

Back And Shoulder Acne...whyyy

25 April 2013 - 09:14 PM

Woo first post on this site. 6 months ago, my back was clear: no acne, no blemishes, nothing. However after my soccer season ended, i got a tiny bit of acne on my back. I was like "oh well, no big deal", but it has transformed into some pretty nasty stuff. It's mostly concentrated on my shoulder blades now and is a problem when I carry a backpack or lift weights. I tried head and shoulders, but it only worked for 3 weeks, then stopped. I've been using benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and dial antibacterial wash. Doesn't really seem to work. It's still a bunch of inflamed pimple things on my shoulder blades -_- however, it does seem that friction causes these, but it's impossible to stop carrying backpacks (unless you say i ditch school, then i'm in!).

This has taken a pretty huge toll on my self-esteem, and i'm open for any suggestions, tips, or even people that can relate. The only good thing about this is that I don't feel disgusted with people with acne anymore. Rather, I look at them and feel sorry. Any suggestions? Should I just try accutane? Thanks!
