Body Acne Relapse! Help!

Recommended Posts

Thanks in advance for any advice/help...

I'm a 16 year old guy, been dealing with acne on the face and back since I was thirteen. I clean my face twice daily with a Clearasil facial cleanser, and clean my face and back with Stridex wipes before bed each night. I also apply 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Gel and Clindamycin phosphate topical lotion which are prescriped by dermatologist. I also was taking tetracycline for the last year or two, but have now been taking minocycline for the last week (1 100mg tablet daily) after my dermatologist switched me onto that.

I play ice hockey which you think would cause very bad body acne with the sweaty gear, but surprisingly during the season i only had minor chest acne and a little back acne. Now that the season is over, however, the back acne has gotten a little worse, and the chest acne much worse. Does anyone know why this may be, or how I could get my acne back under control? I really need to get it better for the summer, as soon as possible. Thanks again
