Hey needing some advice for my anxiety I have had it about 2-3 years but the last year and a halve I've started getting it on my back and chest I've tried different antibiotics and diffiren gel but only seems to slightly improve it and I took the antibiotic for about 6 month. Does anyone have any tips? Thanks

    Hi, I get acne on my back too and it might be the water from your bath/shower. Or the products you use in the shower...literally anything shampoo, shower gel, face wash. A lot of these things have SLS or SLES(chemicals which are bad for skin and with certain people can cause acne). So I suggest looking more into more natural products. Good Luck!!!

      I tried Cetaphil for about 3-4 days and after I had such bad breakouts I just wanted to sit and cry. I would advise you not to use that brand like at all.
