    http://www.channel4embarrassingillne...nditions/acne/ Just wondering if anyone has this type of acne suppose to effect 1 in 8 teenagers and even some adults. Ive started to get really small spots and am worried it might get to this stage.

    Didn't look at the picture - i'm squeamish :p:

    I've been getting just a few spots on my back for a couple of years or so. And it's never actually turned into actual acne.

    So maybe you'll be lucky. Don't worry about it.

    Saying that - i've never had acne on my face... have you?

    I believe the technical term would be 'Bacne' :p:

    And no, fortunately not there, just everywhere else!

    i found out that i used to have semi bad acne on my back.. for the main reason, i didnt moisturise my back.. so it got dry etcc..not good

    but then when i got my back waxed (woop woop!!) i HAD to oil my back to soothe the irratation on my back.. all the roots were pulled up and it itched like hell.. so i had to oil to sort it out.. and now i have a lot less acne on my back.. the odd blemish here and there but nothing more than that

    So i think you need to do one thing.. either wax your back.. or just get someone to oil it everynight b4 u go to bed.

    That sounds a bit odd... add MORE oil to your back to reduce acne?

    yeah and sexy and strange as it sounds.. it works.. i mean you dont have to use oil persay.. u can use creams n shizz.. just as long as the back is getting moisturised

    i have it exactly like that picture if not worse. it's extremely unfortunate really as it has nothing to do with washing. i should see a doctor and get a prescription but i'm just too scared

    I had it as bad as that if not worse than that in the picture but started roaccutane 3 weeks ago. Seems to be helping already which is good

    Go to the Doctor, he will give you anti-biotics and cream for it, it takes about 3 months to get working but it will be worth it. And dont be embarrised, they see it everyday.
