You may need to see a dermatologist to discuss other options such as cosmetic laser surgery which would be much more effective but much more expensive.

Back acne: If you are still developing widespread acne on the back, then you should talk with your doctor about oral medications like antibiotics- usually the topical treatments are difficult to apply on such an area. If it's the acne scars you're talking about, unfortunately there's no magic cream to remove them. Sometimes laser treatment by dermatologists can help with acne scaring. I'd start there. ...Read more

Manage your acne: You're almost an adult. If topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid haven't cleared you in two weeks, your physician will need to add prescription-strength Rx. Keep doing this until your acne remits on its own. There is nothing you can do to speed its self-curing. Dark spots can be bleached but I'd advise you not to try; depressed scars need specialist intervention. ...Read more
