I had body acne and I can walk with a book on my head without it falling off... I don't think there's a link personally.

After 4 years of different treatments for bacne, I have used exfoliation chemical and brushes, light therapies, natural remedies (such as egg whites), Retin A cream, Antibiotic cream and I have been on about 4 different antibiotics. The dermatologist told me that the only option was Roaccutane but I wasn't so keen. I am so glad I said no, I was given benzoyl peroxide 2.5% and told basically to get on with it. My acne was very similar to yours, I have stopped exfoliating my skin and started with the benzoyl peroxide every night. I have also stopped having any dairy (which is annoying 'cause I like milk) and started taking vitamins A, B and E. I wore a backless dress yesterday, for the first time in 4 years! I do think the key is to be gentle with your skin, use BP and cut out dairy (the vitamins may be helping but Its rather difficult to know). If you are going to use that scary looking brush on your back, make sure you drop the bristles in boiling water, otherwise you just put the bacteria back on you back. (A better option may be exfoliation gloves or mittens as you can just put them in the wash). Drink lots of water too :)
