I've used dial soap for my back acne and it went away in less than a month. I'd had it for over a year. Use a wash cloth and exfoliate the area with dial soap every day when you take a shower. Dial soap is antibacterial and dries the area as well. :)

I agree. I get back facials when my back breaks out badly. Those zits tend to be very deep in the skin which is much thicker on the back so extractions are often really helpful. For maintenance use a back loofah and neutrogena body clear

Try neutrogena body clear spray. It cleared my body acne in a week.

I had back acne and used a mild soap and a non-oil moisturizer - and unfortunately just waited it out! You can't use anything harsh (or even scrub it - doing this breaks the skin and invites more bacteria in) because it will make it worse - using over-drying agents will force your skin to work overtime, and produce even more oil, which is exactly what you don't want! It can be caused by an internal imbalance and hormonal fluctuations - I hope you've had luck with treating it!

I would try a gentle cleanser made specifically for body acne. Nothing too over-drying or harsh as this could easily make your back acne worse (which i've learned the hard way!)

Try scrubbing your back with salt and olive oil or lemon. You can shower everyday from neck down to wash the lotion out. Don't let the body lotion stay long on you skin wash it the next day that what causes back acne. Hydrate yourself with water and eat healthy food. ^_^ Good luck

Sulfur soap is amazing. I had extremely bad back acne and I bought sulfur soap from Walmart for about 3 dollars. It smells bad, but works wonders!
