Can you tell me what could I do to get rid of acne on my chest and shoulder/back . Something that will work fast?

Some people produce more oil then others, etc. Drying soaps and "Acne washes" can help. Sometimes low-dose antibiotics can be Rx'd by your doctor, creams, etc. See your Doctor. ...Read more
