    Back acne

    Ok, so I've been off hear for a while and done with PCT... But still have acne on my back. Not like scars but patches across my shoulders. I scrub them and use soap for oily skin... Crazy thing is I really didn't get much while on cycle so I'm not sure what to make of this... Any suggestions?

    what's happening is your body is trying to recover and find a hormonal balance. I would suggest showering twice daily, try to limit friction the bad spots such as scratching and or rubbing, look into tanning to dry them out, use a back loofah to scrub your whole back, and have your g/f use astringent pads to clean your back after getting out of the shower and then apply a spot treatment to the affected areas.

    Careful about combining the tanning with the topical treatments as it may dry your skin out too much

    +1, tanning always helps me. Also, jumping in a pool helps dry them out for me as well.

    Just thought of this. When I have some zits on my shoulder, I rub pure alcohol on them a few times a day and it seems to work.

    umm I would advise against this as if you are using any other treatment currently that is going to over dry your skin

    There is a product called Acnedren. Google search for it.
    4 caps a day and my acne is pretty much gone.
    It took a couple weeks to heal up the pre existing acne.

    Currently running 1100 cyp weekly.

    Bleaches and washes only make things worse.

    I don't get any acne...well almost none, when I do get a zit on my shoulder or back or chest, I usually put a damp cotton soaked in alcohol with a bandade over it. for 15-20 min. Helps alot.

    The down side with alcohol or benzoyl peroxide etc is it dries the skin.
    This in turn causes more oil to be released which makes things worse except now your skin is also red and irritated plus covered with acne.

    Its got to be cured from the inside.

    Clean the skin from the inside out, not the other way around. Check the Acne thread in my sig, it works.
