A 24-year-old member asked:

How often should you use exfoliating body wash on back acne?

Dr. Morris Westfried

Daily: If not irritating a salicylic acid prep could be used daily.
Dr. Lee Bittenbender

Daily: The washes containing salicylic acid may be irritating if overused. A wash containing benzoyl peroxide may be better tolerated, plus you get an antibacterial effect. One does need to be careful, however, because the benzoyl peroxide can bleach colored fabrics.
