Get with your personal physician now. Topical and "folk / home" remedies will probably not clear your disease. If a systemic antibiotic and spironolactone don't clear you, please consider isotretinoin. Do what you must. ...Read more

Get real Rx: If it's on your back, you'll probably need both topical treatment (consider benzoyl peroxide plus topical clindamycin, perhaps with a retinoic acid derivative), plus a sytemic antibiotic or one of the big guns that only a dermatologist can write for. Some acne scars give a man character, but this should be a choice; this is the 21st century & all acne can be managed scientifically. ...Read more
