Acne on my legs and tummy

The Australian weather has been getting hotter as we are coming into Summer and lately I have been getting little pimples on my thighs, legs and lower stomach. Nothing major, but I am just wondering if anyone has any tips, like body washes etc?

When I've gotten smaller outbreaks like that, a benzoyl peroxide wash cleared them right up.

I seem to have permanent cystic acne on my thighs, though, and minocycline is the only thing that seems to have taken a chunk out of them.

If perchance, there's any kind of product you use all over those body parts (lotion, baby powder, etc), maybe double-check its ingredients against a comedogenic ingredients list. Hot sweatiness might just be making you more sensitive to it.
