    Please look at these and help me find the cause :(

    Thanks for the advice. I'll try tracking what I eat when the breakouts get worse and pinpoint what it might be. Yes, I think that those were razor bumps in case of my legs, and thankfully I found a way to eliminate them. I've also suspected folliculitis before but the photos I came across online seemed much more severe and inflamed than what I have. However after checking again today I noticed some milder cases look exactly like my arms. I will look into it. Thanks!
  2. I've had mild backne since high school but they would come and go and wouldn't bother me too much. However, around 5 years ago I suddenly developed horrible backne, followed by weird leg bumps. My legs cleared up after I switched to an aloe-based shaving gel so I guess it was a completely unrelated issue (?). Anyways, my backne persists even today, and since 2 years ago I've developed arm and chest acne (yay!). Then this year my face also started breaking out worse than usual, just on my cheeks. What I've tried so far: I've tried cutting out gluten and dairy and noticed a slight improvement but they were still there, I would just break out a bit less. Used sebamed body wash and face toner for a year (dermatologist's advice) - nothing. Switched my clothes detergent, cut out softener. - nothing noticeable. Tried being careful about the fabric of my clothes (no synthetics, no scratchy materials) I don't remember all the products I've used over the years honestly. Now I'm using la roche posay lipikar lavant shower gel because it seemed to help a bit last year. I apply some ESI aloe gel after shower and my chest seems to be almost breakout free at the moment. Nothing seems to help my arms though. I live in a very small town and there's only one dermatologist who just doesn't bother or doesn't know how to do his job. Honestly speaking, I never went back after he prescribed sebamed without even listening to me or bothering to ask any questions about my diet or routine. These are my arms and chest (on a good day). I couldn't take good photos of my back by myself, sorry. Hopefully if someone had the same issue you could tell me what helped you. (P.S. Sorry if my English is a bit off, it's not my first language)
