Treatments For Acne

Ruth asks…

How can I get rid of chest and back acne?

I have an embarrassing case of chest and back acne. I read somewhere that to help it, you can scrub the areas gently with a loofa during a shower. I’ve been doing that for two weeks and its not helping. Is there a special medicine designed just for the treatment of acne on the chest and back?

admin answers:

Okay, you can purchase a back/shoulder/chest acne wash at your pharmacy. Neutrogena has one for sure, but just browse around incase you see something better.

So I’m not sure what product you should use; but I have some tips.
- Wear light t-shirts or tank tops to bed.
- Before you shower, scrub your back with a loofah/back scrubber, then apply the acne cream you’ve chosen. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse it off.
- It will strengthen your skin if you can get a little bit of sun on it each day – probably 2-4 periods of 15 minutes a week would be great.
- Change/wash your bedsheets often.
- Completely dry your back/chest after your shower before you put on a shirt

Also here’s some things to try:
Clean + Clear
Neutrogena back/shoulder wash
Benzoyl peroxide
Witch hazel
your usual facial wash – but these usually are not as strong as the back washes, so would take longer/not work as well.

Good luck :]

George asks…

Are there any other powerful acne medications besides Accutane?

I have horrible acne on my back and arms. Are there any powerful acne medications or treatments that are guaranteed to work. I don’t want to take Accutane because of the side effects. Also, are there any good treatments for acne scars.

admin answers:

Niacinamide face cleansing pads are effective and simple way to keep acne away. Just place a pad on the pimple and watch it fade away. Lavender Oil helps prevent skin drying.
Niacinamide pads are also known as Vitamin B3 pads or Nicotinamide pads.
Give them a try and you will be pleasantly surprised.
