Acne on the arms, annoying! Also progress Pics

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I got this really annoying acne on my arms, and some on my back. Nothing serious, I would say its relatively mild. I've been having a bunch of hair grow on my upper arms and back and it looks a little inflamed, that may be the reason. I don't think it's like follucilitis or anything :confused:

What kind of acne is this btw, is it like hormonal? I'm 17 years old. My face is very clear though, and I drink a ton of milk everyday and dairy products, but i'm stopping because I heard that it isn't good for you :)

Judge for yourself

Yeah it looks mild.

Try head & shoulders shampoo look into this thread. People said it works.

Milk and dairy products has iodine in them said to cause acne.

yeh really mild, h&s should clear that up, its working on mine which is slightly worse. if the rest of you is fine, i wouldnt put it down to hormones really.

it really isnt that severe, so i dont think you should totally give up milk, which in every other way is good for you.
