One of my favorite initial treatments for back acne is a benzoyl peroxide wash. You can use any brand that has a concentration from 5- 10% and use it in the shower. Apply it to the back, leave it on for about 30 seconds, and rinse off. You should start to see an improvement in 2 weeks hopefully!

I hope that helps
