Extremely Dry Back + Worse Acne.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

This might not be completely about my bacne, but I need help from the side effects of a remedy.

So I tried using Head & Shoulders [Classic Clean] on my back since many have been raving about it and the success of the product against their back acne.

I used it for 2 days just apply, wait, and rinse. My back and chest acne started to diminish.

Then I came across another thread where the user just applied it to his back, and let it dry. It started to work a little.

As I continued to use it, my back became extremely dry and flaky. So I stopped using it.

A few days later [present] my back is STILL dry and flaky with a bit of acne coming back. I've even applied lotion to my back within the past few days. [i usually don't put lotion on my body since it never gets dry. So yes, my back is really dry.]

Also, the dryness is starting to crossover to my chest also. :\

So now, what can I do? It's really irritating and I'm now clueless of what to do next. I don't even care about my bacne, I just really would like to heal my dry skin. :wall:
