How can I get rid of back acne?

Given it is hard to access the back and apply creams to large areas, it is best to start with a medicated wash such as benzyl peroxide or salicylic acid for acne on the body. If however the acne is severe with cysts or scarring then medical treatment should be initiated early. Dr Cara McDonald, Dermatologist – Complete Skin Specialists

What causes acne?

The basic process seen in the formation of acne is one where the pore becomes blocked with excess dead skin cells and oil. This blockage then becomes the site of both infection and inflammation resulting in red bumps, pustules and in some cases deep cystic lesions. Genetics play a vital role in acne.
