    Oh shut up, it is not. Are you able to wash your whole back? I use this body puff thing that's on a long stick...I can get my whole back with no problem. Then, after showers, I use stridex pads.....between the two my back is nearly clear.

    Just a thought.....hope you find somethin' that helps!

    One good thing about being double jointed and flexible. I do have a tendency to pick though :(

    Do the stridex pads help with the scars though. It's painful to look at, but they don't hurt physically.

    you could try apple cider vinegar for the scars or desitin/sudocrem. both work great for scars. they're not over-night cures though. but you dont look too bad. hope you find something that works

    I know others have it worse.

    If this camera took better macro (closeup) shots then you might be able to see the damage. Anyway I started soaking in sea salt and I got the H&S + SA 2% going on the prevent.

    I wonder if I have folliculitis, been using H&S on my chest/back and there has been some improvement.

    I'll update pictures by the end of this week.

    Dude, that photo could totally be of my back. Worst part is that being an athletic guy, you always have to show off parts of your back, or even take the whole shirt off. (Boxing, distance running, swimming, any kind of Shirts vs. Skins game, etc.)

    Blows, doesn't it?

    As for that Lacey kid, you sound really cool. You should post your address so we can hang out some time. *cracks knuckles*

    I just had a baby and the hormone changes of my pregnancy gave me horrible painful back acne.. and on my face.. My back has completely cleared but my face is almost there.. Here is what I did.. First of all, go to your local health food store or via internet and purchase a soap called AKNE. It is 5% sulphur and it will dry you out bad.. Use it once a day in the shower. Rub your back down with it real good until it is all white and soapy.. it might start to tingle or itch but that is normal.. Leave it on for about 5 minutes.. When you get out of the shower, your back will be red and very dry and tight. The red spots from old acne will be even redder and your back will look like you have alot more pimples but that will go away within like 30 minutes.. It is normal.. Then apply alot of AQUAPHOR.. That is very important..Do not skip that step.. For about a week, it seemed like my acne was not changing at all. Then suddenly it was going away quickly.. Once it is gone and all you have is red spots then here comes the worst part.. Go to the tanning bed and lay as long as you think it will take to burn your skin to the point of peeling.. You can cover the rest of your body. I'm fair skinned and don't go to the tanning bed anymore so it took me 15 minutes to burn and peel.. I only went 2 times. once i healed i went back and did it one more time.. Peeled to red marks right off.. Or you can buy an excellent lotion with a bronzer for the tanning bed and just go every other day starting at like 5 minutes, then 8 minutes, then 12 minutes until you reach your desired tan and the bronzer will even your skin tone...

    I have the exact same problem... mine is maybe a little worse than yours. I'm telling you, its really getting 2 me. For the comment "dont go to the beach" Do you honestly think that I or him, anyone that has this problem doesnt think about that? I only wish that our bacne should become yours and that you would know what it feels like to NOT be able to go shirtless at the beach, and for that matter with a g/f or b/f in bed. I hate this bacne deal... I've dealt with it for MANY MANY years and nothing seems to work.

    well from the looks of it u aint got it as bad as me man. be thankful! but ive tried everything but nothing has work until now. im on my 3 month of accutane and let me tell u it has stoped 75% of my breakouts on my back and getting better everyday.

    as far as goin shirtless. hey go 4 it man. i have it worse than u and i go shirtless. i guess it takes time thou. u have 2 be confortable in your own skin. and if your worried about what your bf or gf my think. DONT! if they are really ment 2 be then they will accept u 4 who u are. my g/f doesnt mine them. she says "sometimes its the imperfections that can be the most attractive thing about a person.instead of being flawless, thats boring":D)

    Has anyone tried the Murad body acne spray? My back was hideous, and it has worked wonders. I use it with the Murad body wash, and it is pretty pricey, but well worth it. Now for the scars..Ahhh
