Dear BeingGirl Experts,

How can I get this acne off of my back? I've had it for a few years, and it's time for it to go.

Lindsay,

You treat a breakout on your back (often called bacne) the same as a breakout on your face. We recommend using an antibacterial soap, Noxema or other deep cleansing cream, and your favorite pimple cream on these pimples. Hopefully this will reduce the appearance of your pimples.

 

Wearing loose fitting tops and bras is also a smart idea. You need to make sure theses garments are washed after wearing, as you want clean items to touch the infected skin.

 

Remember, what works for one person, might not work for you. This is why you may need to check with a dermatologist if you try what we outlined and don't get relief.

 

We hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

I used to have bad acne on my back and chest. I was so tired of it, I washed my back and chest every night. Still nothing happened. Then my mom thought it might be my body spray. I always used to spray my chest in the morning. So, I stopped doing that, now my chest is clear, and as for my back? Well that's pretty clear now too! So you may not need to get a special product, your skin may just be reacting to something you already have! :O)
