I has it. I scrub well with a rough loofah and sponge. I use a vegetable based non scented glycerine soap. Any ideas how I can get rid of this crap?

I'm in the same boat.I've had it since i was 14 and since i was 16 ive been fairly healthy but it wont go away.I even just ate fruit and greens for a month and still was getting pimples.

I don't wash my bed sheets though i leave it to my mom and she hardly ever does it.Maybe that is the problem.

It sucks so bad though.My back is scared from all the years and my face hardly gets any pimples.Strange.Whenever i get in shape i can't even show off cus i don't want to take my shirt off cus my back is fucked.

From what I've read on the subject, scrubbing with a loofah is not a good idea. You want to avoid friction with the skin where you're getting pimples, since that can result in pore blockage by dead skin bits. You do want to stay clean, though. A daily rinse with salicylic acid is suppose to be good for this. Here's some more info: http://acne.about.com/od/acnebasics/a/bodyacnebasics.htm

My sisters dermatologist told me to stop using a loofa and rough washcloth. I am using a soft poofeh thing, and peppermint glycerine soap. My sis also bought me these fruit acid skin wipes and she does my back every few days, it's helping.

Same problem. Though most people my age get the same thing so it doesn't really bother me.. trying an acne cream atm.

I agree with Mikey. A product containing salicylic acid will definitely help. Excessive loofah and or scrubbing will just make it worse. The salicylic acid will clean out the pores effectively so you won't have to scrub so much.

Apply raw apple cider vinegar..it clears up back (and ass) acne in days! You'll need to buy a good unfiltered one for it to work, one which looks cloudy and has some of the "mother" in it.
Don't forget to do a skin test first because some people are more sensitive to it than others and have to dilute it 50/50 with distilled water.
However, I do find it works best neat and with a couple of drops of oregano oil, or tea tree oil mixed in XD

Yeah, that works, just crush up about 7 asprins and mix them with honey. Apply and leave on for about 15 min XD

Figured out my problem, as bizarre as this sounds. I started wearing a shirts to the gym because I get really hot when I lift. After showering one day I noticed my zits were mostly on the outer part of my shoulders where the shirt dd not cover. So I started wearing t-shirts to the gym and it's started to clear up a bit. Weird.

Going to continue to use the fruit acid wipes, see what happens.

I need to go buy some t-shirts to wear to the gym now.

like I said, raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar with a few drops of tea tree, and or peppermint oil applied twice a day. Later make a mask with 7 crushed asprin and a large spoon of honey and apply the mask twice a week. Don't use soap, wash your face with honey too. Just apply it like gel soap to your damp face, massage in and rinse off. The difference it has made to my daughters skin is AMAZING, so hopefully it may work for you too!
