20 years of severe leg/butt acne

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm posting this because I don't know what else to do.

I've had folliculitis since I was ten years old.  It has stayed in the upper leg/butt region the entire time.

About ten years ago, my doctor prescribed several rounds of different antibiotics.  Worked temporarily and then not at all.  I tried benzoyoal peroxide body wash - it worked a little if I let it dry on my skin, but doing this caused bleached towels and underwear.  Recently, I purchased rubbing alcohol and African black soap.  Doesn't help. 

What does help is seawater and sun.  I noticed that follucilitis cleared for sometime whenever my family took a trip to the beach.  My problem is I don't have a tub to test epsom salts.  Is there a work-around that anyone knows of such as making some sort of spray?
