What are good treatments for back acne?

Ever since i adopted the acne.org regimen, my face has stayed relatively clear for years. My back, too, is generally clear. But 2 months ago it started breaking out again and i have no idea why. Hasn't been this bad since high school

Things i've tried to fix it:
- Eating clean (i mean CLEAN... just finished a 30-day AlP diet... nothing but meat, certain veggies, certain fruits, and water. That's **lT**.)
- Washing my back daily (with a 2% salicylic acid scrub + backbrush) 
- Drinking lots of water all day (i do this regardless)
- Wearing a shirt when i sleep (been doing this for years)
- Not wearing the same shirt for more than a day at a time

i sometimes get back breakouts, like you i cant really pin it down to one thing causing the problem but i believe it could be caused by hormones & sweat.

you might need to experiment with different products to find one that works for you. in my experience, my chest & back can handle harsher products compared to my face, so washes containing SLS are not problem.

i also find warm/hot showers tend to work quite well.
