Help! I want my confidence back :(

Hey everyone

I'm new to this site. I'm 23 and have had reoccuring acne problems for many years. Its driving me to extreme insanity now lol. I use a salicylic acid based cleanser on my face and black mud mask soap on my body. I no longer use medication because nothing I used in the past worked. Whats annoying me the most is the spots I get on my upper arms, shoulders and chest area. It kinda looks like a prickly heat like rash with a few larger inflamed spots and they just wont go away! It looks worse round the area of my bra straps which I think has something to do with sweating away at the gym lol. But since Ive gave up faith on topical treatments I'm not sure what else to use that will work! Last few days I applied lemon juice to the area but to be honest it only seems to be reducing the bumps on my face not my body.

Anyone had the same problem and found something that worked? I also take a multivitamin every day and limit my sugar and caffeine intake. Oh and my laundry powder was changed to non bio a few months ago so dont think its that.

Thank you :)
