Back acne coming back. It seems to happen around this time every year

Recommended Posts

My first post here was around this time last year. My back acne was pretty bad (at least to me).

Over the course of this year it has been improving. A lot of the red scars are gone and my back was finally looking smooth. But it's coming back :(

I now have 5 cystic acne type spots. They are large, and itch like crazy. I don't itch them ever. I learned the hard way last year that itching them causes them to spread and causes scaring/red marks. Tip for others with bacne ... leave them alone :P

I can feel more coming too. I feel itchy all the time. I wake up and feel depressed because just as it went away it starts to come back.

Is it possible the winter can cause them?

Pruritus (intense itching) generally isn't associated with acne as we regularly define it. If you're still reading this, please message me and post in here with a recent picture so we can see what is going on.
