    every day. Haha. hmm... what should i do then? cause i don't like not showering ever day :/
    I shower every day but stopped using soap directly on my back each time (usually only if I was playing sport), I also bend forward a bit so the shampoo doesn't irritate the skin there either, and it solved the problem 100%.

    brill. thanks. How quickly does it work?
    How often should i do it?
    Only scrub once a week or else you will irritate the skin. But apply antibacterial cream every day. Or as much as you like. You will find the spots get less red/painful within an hour or 2.

    If you have spots which are more like boils then get yourself some magnesium sulphate paste from any chemist, will draw the boils out and get rid of them.

    I had this issue when I was 15/16, but fortunately was male so didn't have the problem. I used freederm for face spots, which worked, not sure if it will on your back or not. :holmes: If not, can you make your hair cover it somehow? :dontknow: Or make up. :holmes:

    Pan Oxyl. Best cream I have used for spots - I used to have a lot on my back and it cleared them up nicely. Also, it's much cheaper than other spot creams out there.

    Also try using some kind of organic shower gel that doesn't have loads of chemicals in it, as these could be irritating your skin. I used to use Dove and noticed an improvement when I stopped using it.

    I can't help there as I've never used it. I've included links to the two shower gels that I use, I know they seem expensive but they last a long time. I've had the same bottle for about 2 1/2 months now and I shower every day, so you do get your money's worth.
