Try some benzoyl before you go to bed. Just apply it all over your back. I've heard good things about Clean&Clear PersaGel. It may dry out your skin for a little while, but it shouldn't be noticable by prom. Make sure you wear an old, loose shirt that you don't mind getting bleached. And make sure that it has time to dry before putting a shirt on.

I don't know when your prom is, but you can get a back facial at a spa. They will exfoliate, extract and all that. But don't get it right before the prom, if you have time get it a week before so it has time to calm down. And then after you get the facial start using BP on it or some kind of acne product. This way the product will get in there better. Or you could even get a gylolic mask on it too. This you could do at home if you buy the glycolic peel in a bottle. You could have someone apply it to your back and do it a couple times before the prom . But if you do do that, make sure you do a test patch to make sure your skin doesn't go crazy with glycolic.
