Chest acne with intense itching?

Recommended Posts

About two months ago my entire chest started breaking out and itching very badly almost simultaneously. I've never had acne at all on my chest so it came as a big surprise. I didn't change anything in my diet, my skin care regimen, etc. So far I've tried:

Only using dye/fragrance free laundry detergent

Changing sheets every day


Neutrogena Body Wash

Not using any soap on my chest


None of these things have stopped the new acne from forming, or the INTENSE ITCH I get throughout the day. I don't know if the acne is causing the itching, or the itching is causing the acne?

Has anyone else come across this?

have you recently started lifting weights? My itchy chest acne came from the horomones released when I did heavy lifting, single cause of my problem

Are you sure it's not just some rash or something?

I had some pimples on my chest once and I used this stuff called 'OXY body wash' on it and the next day it was basically gone.

But you say you have sensitive skin? Well if you do and you do get the stuff put it on reallly gently because the stuff is pretty strong so be careful.
