    can't work out in a tank top because of acne? come on bro.....sport that shit

    But really, I have acne on my face , back , shoulders too. Tanning, taking alot of showers throughout the day will help. Would like to know what else would help.

    accututain is good but keep it until last option.tanning does work quite well and also try showering more often and u can also use dawn washing up liquid that helps but go easy as it can dry the skin up also dabing the effective areas with something like pure teatree oil is good.

    HAHAHA, Dude, THATS F*CKIN NASTY!!!! LMAO!!!! that got me to laugh!!!

    anyways, hmmm, i just make sure im gettin at least a gallonw ater per day, stay away from shit foods, an get multivitamins a plenty. that helps my acne. i dont have much, but for some reason, my cycle is comin to an end with 2 weeks to go and i am breaking out more??? its not that bad for me though. it could be worse. I know what you mean bout the bumps. for me....i would poke some with a needle, then dab then with rubbing alcohol. I also use Benzol peroxide cream (aka clearisol) THAT SH*T WORKS WONDERS!!!

    i got absolutely terrible acne on my arms, shoulders and back on my last cycle and these wernt just pimples they were big red marks deep under the skin like sopmeone else said earlier. a few months later it was still as bad, even though i showered 2 or 3 times a day! anyway, i was geting desperate and gonna ask to be prescribed accutane, but i tried a moisturiser with vitamin e in it on the affected areas of my arms and shoulders (i was originally using it for stretch marks), and after about 2 weeks there was a massive difference. the spots on my arms and shoulders are practically gone, whereas my back (because i didnt rub that area) is still very bad. so give that try if you arnt already

    There was an old discussion on this board about how sprayin deodrant on affected areas hepled clear it. Worked for some people. But there were those who said it didn't do squat. Try and do a search on "deodrant" and see if anything pops up.

    Dish soap. Leave it on your skin for a while. Wash it off later. It gets even the deep cystic acne under the skin. I wouldn't use the accutane yet.
    Tanning + Dish soap really worked for me

    you say your face is clear.. have you tried using whatever you use to clean your face on you shoulders.. facial cleaners work the same all over the body.

    Lord have mercy, u and your girlfriend dress up in tight leather and whip each other with belts too? Get some counseling if you like popping each others zits. What do u do, " Honey i got a WHITEHEAD". Good god

    well as far your acne im one of the most acne proned people to walk the earth. And im going to extreme measure to prevent it. Heres how im doing it, u should do the same

    Oral Creams on chest face and neck,
    Differin (adapalene Gel) in the morning
    Benzymicin ( Benzylperoxide Gel ) at night
    I shower 3 times a day with dish soap and sacacylic acid scrub
    I use roll on deoderant on my back neck and chest after im done showering
    I also tan once a week

    interesting:

    Asia Pac J Clin Nutr. 2005;14 Suppl:S43.


    The effect of a low glycemic load, high protein diet on hormonal markers of acne.

    Smith R, Mann N, Braue A, Varigos G.

    School of Applied Sciences, RMIT University, Melbourne, VIC.

    Background - Acne vulgaris is a common endocrine condition affecting adolescents in Western civilizations. Acne typically manifests during puberty when there is a transient decrease in insulin sensitivity. It has been suggested that high glycemic nutrition during puberty induces hyperinsulinemia which increases the bioavailability of androgens and certain growth factors. These changes may induce follicular epithelial growth and increased sebum production - two factors responsible for acne proliferation. Objective - To determine the effect of a low glycemic load diet, comprised of high levels of protein and low glycemic index (GI) foods, on hormonal makers of acne vulgaris. Design - Male acne sufferers [n=43, age=18.3+/-0.4 (mean +/- SEM)] were randomly assigned to either the dietary intervention (n=23) or control groups (n=20). The intervention diet consisted of 25% energy from protein and 45% energy from low glycemic index carbohydrates. The control group received no information about diet nor were they given dietary instruction. Venous blood was collected at baseline and 12-weeks for an assessment of testosterone , sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), free androgen index (FAI), dehydroepiandrosterone - sulfate (DHEA-S), insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I and IGF-binding proteins -I and -3. Outcomes - Dietary intervention resulted in a significant reduction in FAI (-9.1 +/- 4.5, P<0.05) and DHEA-S (-0.72 +/- 0.33 umol/L, P<0.05) and an increase in IGFBP-1 (5.3 +/- 1.6 ng/mL, P<0.01). No significant changes were observed in levels of IGF-I, IGFBP-3, testosterone or SHBG following dietary intervention. The control group showed no change in any of the blood parameters measured. Conclusion - These data suggest that a low glycemic load diet may reduce androgenic activity (as indicated by a reduction in FAI and DHEA-S) and may oppose the growth promoting effects of IGF-I by increasing levels of its binding protein, IGFBP-I. This implies that a low glycemic load diet may reduce hormonal influences involved in acne pathogenesis.

    All preventive ways above a great, but when you get a big zit on you. Pop it, and put some neosorporin and a bandaide over it. It's a open sore. This heals it up in days instead of a week or two. BTW, the welts are not fun. I use a needle too to get the juice out. The pain is ridiculous.

    i thought i was the only one that used a needle to pop these deep pimples!! It does work good though, i stick myself in the middle of it, and slowly go in about a 1/4 inch. Sometimes, there is so much inside, that part of the needle fills up with puss. This is so nasty i know, but i would not have admitted to it untill someone else did!
