Back acne: The best over the counter treatment for back acne may be a benzoyl peroxide wash. I recommend 10 percent. One should use it daily. It will ruin one's towels. Often, oral antibiotics are needed and even accutane. If scarring is present do not delay seeing a dermatologist to prevent further scarring. www.drbader. Com.
