See a dermatologist: There are now in many different creams and pills available to treat acne that is either mild or severe. They suggest you see a dermatologist to see which is best for you. Remember that any treatment takes several weeks to take effect.

Serious Rx needed: Acne on the trunk won't respond well to anything you can do on your own. Start using topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated and get with your personal physician now. If a course of a systemic antibiotic does not clear you, the next offer may be Isotretinoin from a dermatologist; it's not for the faint-hearted but i'd urge you to try it if it's suitable.
