Scientific Rx: Forget homemade remedies. Acne on the trunk usually requires a systemic rx that you can get only from your physician. You'll want him/her to double-check that this is indeed what you have. You may end up on tetracycline 500 2x/day; this is likely to help; there are topical solutions that may help, such as benzoyl peroxide over the counter.
