Failing that, a dermatologist is needed to prescribe accutane. There's no reason that in the 21st century your acne can't be controlled. ...Read more

Unrelated: Drink as much water as you think you need and trust your body. The fact that you're not drinking so much water as some non-scientist thinks you should isn't causing your acne. Acne over the back usually requires a systemic antibiotic in addition to topical rx, and you may be a candidate for one of the strong rx's by a dermatologist. ...Read more

Without : Without examining you, its hard to say for certain what you have, but the red, painful lump you are experiencing could be a boil. Boils usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should see your doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feel ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately. You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. ...Read more

See your physician.: Pimples on trunk and chest are uncommon in men of your age. I do wonder if the reaction you have are really pimples or if they are allergic reaction to new laundry products, fabric softener, or soaps. You really need to see your doctor to let him evaluate it better. Best wishes. ...Read more

Red bumps in varying sizes under glute/upper-back thigh. No whitehead on them. Worse in summer, humid climates, & when sweating. How can I calm it?

Rash??: You do not have a picture but your description of it being in moist wet areas makes me think that it could be a candida infection. Not uncommon in young women. You can go see your MD and he can diagnose it, get a culture if necessary, and put you on a topical antibiotic cream. ...Read more
