Can shirts be irratating?

Recommended Posts


As if acne on the face wasn't bad enough, I have it on the chest/back too. I don't get it. It seems no matter what I do, I still get new acne there. I wear a ~35lb backpack for about an hour (but that will end in a week :D). I was wondering if maybe that could cause acne on the back/shoulders? Or maybe just shirts in general? I'd hate to think my skin is THAT sensitive. :D

I've also heard sun (not too much) can be good for chest/back acne, anyone have any experience with this? Also, are there any soaps/washes you would recommend that I could use in the shower? Thanks. :lol:

I'm going to be frank with you. Neither one of the things you mentioned (backpack and shirt) can cause acne. There are two probable causes for your acne:

1) Natural changes that come with puberty.

2) Your diet.

My advice to you is that you should try a different diet. Learn how to substitute milk, butter, bread, coffee and all the other foods that are likely to cause the propagation of acne.

You could also try using a moisturizer. Moisturizers come in handy in the treatment of this pain-in-the-ass disease.
