Recommended Posts

We are all our own worst critics and I do not have bacne so I don't know what you are going through but I really really think your face makes up for it. You are a really good looking guy! Good luck with your regimen.

Wow thank you two girls above me! you really cheered me up this day! i am on verge of just giving up to be honest though, as its very stubborn condition bacne :(. it must be harder for female to have this though so i do sympathise with anyone going through it, as girls want to wear dresses and things at least i can hide mines with t-shirt. and also as a guy the scars do not bother me so much, but im sure girls want flawless skin on back. its very annoying problem :wall:

@ adventuregirly7

apart from vitamin b5 what is your current regimen? i do recommend useing loofah when wash and also after sea salt bath as when i first post this thread i had very bad lumps, now its better!

have good weekend and hope this topic help other people in same boat!

I have acne on my back, and I hate it!!! But, it's currently the best it's ever been (I have only 1 lesion) because I've been putting medicine on it every night. I use Dan's BP alternating with a 2% SA gel every other night. I also wash it with a 1% SA wash. It has helped tremendously. Mind you, my acne was very mild compared to rian's but nontheless still there and bothersome, sometimes sore. I hope this helps someone out.

^^^ haha you see, you're already getting the girls. Just a few more and you'll get to that 1 million mark . The bacne is clearing :dance: . Good work :clap::clap: I hope the marks fade down with time. I know you don't mind them as much as long as there is no more pain. But I'll keep my fingers crossed anyways. BTW Nice new cat pic , but who the heck is sandy??? Where's Sarah ? :think:

@ Seabass

Hi Seabass, Where do you buy SA gel and wash , from this website? it doesn't matter if your bacne is milder anyway i bet its still as stubborn and annoying as mines. It seems like my back is best its been for ages but the marks just don't budge and I wondered if maybe i can get extractions on my back. :think: because im certain this will flare up again if i dont remove the gunk properly.

thanks for contribution ! im glad you found regime to help you :)

@Blue Strawberry

Cheers, yes its slowly getting better although the although the white circular scars and purple dents are really gross looking. :sick:

I though i already told you about sandy? anyway had him since december or something. Sara the white cat is pregnant haha, this sounds like the jerry springer show now! :lol: enough about cats already :catdance:

Back to bacne!!

will update tomorrow on progress and try make close up pic to show the damage that is being left on my skin :(

I don't want to put a downer on this for anyone but I'm in my 30's and I've had bacne since 16.

It cleared up totally once when I was 19 by using Minocin 50 (prescribed by the doctor), this lasted 2 to 3 months then the Minocin was useless.

I've also used Erythromycin (different strengths), Benzamycin gel (this just stained my clothes), Retin-A gel, Quinoderm (non-prescription), I've also seen a specialist at the hospital (10 years ago) and they prescribed me what the doctor who'd referred me had already prescribed... result, sweet FA!

I did find that Clearasil For Men shower wash worked brilliantly but they stopped selling it in Superdrug and Boots and I can't find it anywhere in the UK or online.

I've started importing Neutrogena Body Wash from the USA via eBay (they also stopped selling this in the UK!!!) as I found this to keep it under control but not eliminate it, I've just bought a 16oz treatment bottle from acne.org to go in for the kill which arrived yesterday.

I very rarely get facial breakouts but get the odd spot on my neck which is annoying, I also used to get acne on my chest but now get 1 or 2 spots a year now.

It really is depressing and I now have a young daughter who wants to go swimming but I just don't have the confidence to go.

Argh. Did you ever try Accutane?

I went on tetracycline for 6 months and it did actually work. Although just as my red marks were starting to heal... the acne came back just as strong. Great

Hi, no in fact I've never heard of it, is this prescription only?

I've basically taken the advice of my GP and now I've decided to go it alone for my daughters sake.

Would also like something that doesn't stain my clothes :-

EDIT: just looked Accutane up, is it a pill?

quick update

so, i still have many marks left on my back with healing very slow indeed, I have ordered some Md formulation spray from an online shop, it was recommended to me by my friend and has good reviews so fingers crossed it will aid the healing process and prevent further breakout. :)

here is pick of my back from yesterday.

its very annoying for me, this seems neverending but im will just try to stay positive now and hope it will be normal again one day in future :confused: . just couple of tiny chin spots, nothing compared to what used to grow out my face.

wish me luck,

I had some really good luck with Irish Spring soap. Just the regular kind not any of the moisturizing or sensitive varieties.

It's really cheap and I was amazed with the results.

Well duh. Obviously she was advertising when she said she worked for a dermalogical company and had new product line. What is to expose? Nothing. That product line she was referring to is from a line called Unblemish. Its SA based. There, I just advertised please don't exploit me. :whistle:

I am an old sufferer of this, however mine has now 95% cleared up.

I've been on tetracycline, oxytetracycline and now on erythromycin. All I can see is keep going. You've just got to persist with medication/regimes and they will go.

Don't give up hope Rian, they will disappear over time and I must say, you're a fittie. :P

i've not updated this as i would have hoped due to moving abroad. my back is still the same since last time if not worse. its warm here constantly about 35 - 38 celsius in daytime hours so maybe this is contributing?

anyhow, good luck whoever else fighting this affliction.

bye

This is what I've been doing for my bacne which is much improved.

Washing my back with baking soda in the shower and after toweling off spraying apple cider vinegar / water (ratio 1:1) on my back. Allow it to dry (use a blow dryer if you are in a rush), after it dries you will not smell the acv.

I've used many things on my back...this has helped the most. I've used it for 6 weeks and I don't really have any new spots. Some times I use aha at night.

Hope this helps some one!

Hey, I was just reading your thing and I was just wondering if you've ever tried H&S? (Head and shoulders) I know it sounds weird and all but I started using it five days ago and I saw huge improvements. It sort of flared up on some on the third day but then it went away and it didn't come back.

Hope yours gets cleared up soon, peace.

i've had this problem since my late teens, so 6ish years. sometimes its under control, no active spots. then all of a sudden it flares up.

bathing in sea salt is affordable and works good for some, also washing back by head and shoulders, lemon juice and lot of other things that don't cost a lot.

good luck as well.
