Chest Acne Won't Go Away

1 post in this topic

Hey guys, so i've always had a bit of acne on my chest, but within the last year, it has really gotten a lot worse. I'm not sure what is causing it, but one idea is maybe my chest hair? Some could be ingrown hairs. Anyways, i'm at my wits end on how to get rid of it. I've been on accutane, but stopped after about 4 months because I was getting depressed and I didn't want permanent side effects. I have moderate backne but it's faded into scars, so it's not really an issue at the moment. However, I really just want my chest to clear up. Face is relatively clear, but chest is bad. Would shaving probably help it? Or would it just irritate it? Do you think these are scars? I can't really tell. I'm abroad in Africa at the moment, so hopefully I can get some sun on my chest, maybe that will help (I will wear sunscreen of course), but I won't be back to my dermatologist until June. Any tips on what I should do/what you guys think of it? Anything would be super helpful. Thanks!

Also, I know it's hard to see kind of, I will try to post better pictures later.

Also, I realize the quality is bad, I will try to get better pics later.
