Wht type of Acne is this

Recommended Posts

Could anybody tell me please what type of acne they think this is an how I should treat it??

I used to have acne on my face back and chest but it has basically cleared up on my back and with time and but I can't get my chest to clear up.

I have been on doxy for a while now and I don't think it has helped that much but I haven't really had any new out breaks which is good. I have also been applying vinegar which has helped a bit but not much lately.


Yeah basically want to know the best way to treat this type of chest acne?

Hey Jordy92,

It seems like some mild acne you have there on your chest. I have been on doxycycline for a whole summer last year, but I couldn't seem to find any improvement in my acne in general.

Here are some ways to treat body acne that others have found beneficial on this forum

-Nizoral shampoo(1% ketoconazole)

-Head and shoulders shampoo

-Benzoyl Peroxide Washes(Preferably 10%, because your body can take more)

-AHA Lotions


-If you skin can take it, I suggest you take a shower twice daily.

-Cut out dairy from your diet(Milk, Cheese, etc.)

-Clean Shirts!(Loose fitted, avoid collars for neck acne)

-30 Minutes of sunshine daily if you can

-50mg Zinc
