    accutan will work for sure no doubt but it is harsh on the body so it is usually used as a last resort

    See a dermatologist. Acne for some of us is just a part of haiving the extra test. I did all the antibiotics, austinites remedy and took a 4 month cycle of accutane. I still break out. Accutane helped some, now it is only on my upper back but I have just learned to live with it. The sides sucked really bad for me, maybe too strong of a dose. Got to where my joints hurt so bad I couldn't even do squats. Not to mention dry nose and skin. Not all react the same so I am not saying don't do it, I would just recommend a good dermatologist no matter.

    If you are on Dr prescribed TRT, he may be able to help you also.

    Side effect from the over expression of oil from sebaceous glands. Try showering twice a day.

    How long have you been on trt and how long has the acne been present? Did you have bad acne as a teen?

    I had some acne also on the back after starting trt but it cleared up after about 1y
