Should switch therap: Your age and description sounds like you're describing acne. While steroids will help for the time being, avoid using them as they can worsen or even cause break outs. Switch to an acne fighting wash and use regularly (i.e. Every day) to prevent future breakouts.

How do you get rid of acne?

Start medications: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist might use oral accutane.

ACNE: Acne is the result of hormonal changes, particularly in adolescence. You can prevent it by eliminating nuts and peanut butter, stopping chocolate; cutting down on dairy products. Wash with neutrogena acne wash; apply a bpo (benzoyl peroxide) cream or lotion -- something like clearasil -- on the affected areas at night. If it persists, see a dermatologist who may prescribe an antibiotic for you.

How to get rid of acne naturally?

Acne: Don't wash your face with body soap. Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. Try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena, pangea organics or something with benzoyl peroxide. Following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt. You can try to prevent spreading bacteria onto your face by not touching your face, washing your phone, etc.

How to get rid of acne on the back?

How to get rid of acne on the back?

Can be difficult: It depends somewhat on the size, depth, and number of acne lesions. A benzoyl peroxide wash might be enough if the acne is severe. Other surface products like tretinoin, topical antibiotics, benzoyl peroxides, etc. Can help. I find that back acne often requires an oral antibiotic, sometimes even oral isotretinoin (formerly known as accutane).

Serious Rx: Topical benzoyl peroxide is your best friend, but you'll need to add a prescription strength Rx from your physician, probably a few weeks on a systemic antibiotic. If you're a female, spironolactone or the oral contraceptive pill may work. If you have severe acne and are offered isotretinoin, consider taking it -- though it's not for the faint-hearted.
