Body acne basics (I'm so confused)

Recommended Posts

So 2 months ago I posted this
http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/352179-painfulirritating-arm-pimples/

Since then I have diagnosed with Acne Dysmorphia by my psychologist hence sounding very dramatic in that post haha. Everyone tells me that my body acne is fine and should not effect me in any way unless I let it. 

However I constantly feel like I have no idea what I'm doing in regards to treatments and washing in which I have changed my routine MANY times over 2 years. If I start feeling like I am being helpful towards my skin, I think I would feel better about having body acne. I have mild/moderate acne all over which can sometimes be painful plus I have black heads on my chest and am prone to flaky as well as scaly skin. My current routine goes: Cetaphil cleanser on arms and back, anti-bacterial wash on chest only and moisturize over the dry areas. And my questions range from: Should I be cleansing twice a day? Should I try Benzyl Peroxide? Should my moisturizer be non-comodengic? Are Anti-bacterial washes good for skin? I feel quite lost and have read so many different things so I'd highly appreciate some guidance. :)
