Need help with Back Acne
sabra posted:
I have back acne and I have tried everything and nothing really seems to work im not sure what to do. I have tried a lot of things i need some suggestions.
Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
Dear Sabra,

You can try an over the counter benzoyl peroxide wash in the shower. These are inexpensive and very helpful. Please make sure you rinse it all off, or it may stain your clothes.

If after 2 weeks you do not see an improvement, see your dermatologist for a prescription.

I hope that helps
