    Acne isn't caused by bad hygiene you fool.

    I suffer from very mild acne on my chest and back, though it's completely cleared by a solution I use called 'Erythromycin with Zinc'. It's stronger than it needs to be but I was determined to clear it, so I went for the strongest non-oral medication I could get.

    Perscription stuff but it honestly really sorts your skin, mine is clearer than most people who don't suffer from any skin problems. Absolute lifesaver

    Doesn't strip your skin or make your face dry either unlike off-the-shelf stuff.

    I used to have bad acne on my back- it was nasty. You can try a drug called rouactutane if it's really bad but the side affects are depression and feeling suicidal so I haven't personally tried that. I'm on dianette but that would be no use to you as your a bloke so I recommend sudocream where you can reply it to clear up the acne. The cream is about a fiver a pot but you can use it for other stuff like sunburn and other skin irritations. You could also try evening primrose oil capsules where that can also reduce acne. A bit pot costs about £15 from holland and barrat.
    Hope that helps x

    I've found the 10% okay on my back to be honest, the skin is far less sensitive than my face. But you're probably right to say 5% first

    Either way, quinoderm is amazing, just watch out for it bleaching clothes

    That sounds a bit extreme. Those are extremely rare side effects that aren't entirely proven. People normally just get dry skin and lips.
