Acne: Your doctor may be able to help you with prescribing a antibiotic/acne medicated body wash as well as retin-a. This will help address the 3 ways that lead to acne - oil production, clogged pores, and bacteria. You may also try to wear lose fitting clothing particularly during activities with high perspiration.

Often, acne largely: resolves for some people - but not for all. Evaluation by a dermatologist may provide more insights. Take care.
