I had this same problem!!!! I went to an ear doctor (no idea what the name of an ear doctor is???). He basically took the head off of them (painful) and gave me some cream to put on them. They go away after time tho. Don't put taz on them, it isn't like ur "traditional" acne. It is more due to bacteria.

Yes, accutane will eliminate acne everywhere.

However, if you have acne on you're chest and back, you are more likely to have to take more courses of accutane.
