Dermatological eval: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed. ...Read more

Skin: If you started a new medication this could be a reaction. If so contact you doctor about the condition. If not you should drop a dermatologist so they can have a look before you start treating.

My 24yr old son has large pimples on his chest, face &shoulder. We've tred all sorts of medicated soaps & visited the doctor once without any solut?
Soap won't work: I know you want the best for junior, and acne on the trunk (if that's indeed what it is) won't respond well to any topical therapy. A competent physician may begin him on something simple like tetracycline 500 2x/day perhaps with topical benzoyl peroxide and/or something else. This is likely to clear him; if not, it's his choice whether to undertake Accutane rx. ...Read more
Can you tell me what could I do to get rid of acne on my chest and shoulder/back. Something that will work fast?
Get serious: You're going to need your physician's prescription-strength medication, as topical treatment is almost never sufficient when it's on your trunk. A combination of systemic tetracycline and topical benzoyl peroxide may clear you, or if you're a woman who can take the oral contraceptive pill, this may work like magic. Isotretinoin is for tough cases and isn't for the faint-herated. ...Read more
Can anyone tell me what can I do to get rid of acne on my chest and shoulder/back? What's something that will work fast?
This is serious: You're going to need prescription-strength Rx. No 'pop' or over-the-counter medications will work adequately. Get with your personal physician. And it won't be easy, pleasant, or fast. But there are medications that will work, and in the 21st century, you owe it to yourself to be clear of this chronic but manageable, non-lifestyle-related disease. ...Read more
What to do if I have acne on my face, shoulder, arms, back and chest which make me scared and I think this is because of excessive masturbate plzzzzzzz help?
Scientific Rx: Enjoying your body isn't the cause of your acne. I'm sorry that someone deceived you. Acne on your trunk isn't going to respond well to anything short of systemic treatment. Probably your physician will start with a systemic antibiotic plus topical benzoyl peroxide. If this does not work, you may be a candidate for isotretinoin. It's not for the faint-hearted but it's highly effective. ...Read more
I have acne on my shoulder and a little seems to have begun appearing on the chest as well. P.S : also have a dry scalp and ergo dandruff.
Serious Rx: Acne on the trunk almost always requires a systemic rx, perhaps with topical benzoyl peroxide or something similar. If tetracycline 500 2x/day or something similar fails, ask about Isotretinoin from a dermatologist. Acne is a chronic, serious, non-lifestyle-related disease that if not treated appropriately will lead to long-term regrets. ...Read more
Acne: Your doctor may be able to help you with prescribing a antibiotic/acne medicated body wash as well as retin-a. This will help address the 3 ways that lead to acne - oil production, clogged pores, and bacteria. You may also try to wear lose fitting clothing particularly during activities with high perspiration. ...Read more
Folliculitis: It sounds like you have folliculitis, a minor superficial hair follicle infection. It can be caused by bacteria, yeast, or fungal overgrowth and infection. Usually, it is not serious and easily treated. Sometimes it comes after using a contaminated hot tub (hot tub folliculitis) and is caused by pseudomonas bacteria. Try benzoyl peroxide (bpo) body wash for 1-2 weeks, seek help if not better. ...Read more
Here's an idea: I'm betting this is acne. If it's mild, rub benzoyl peroxide 5% on yourself twice a day. Showering twice a day may help as well. If this doesn't do the trick, and it bothers you, your physician can help you out. If one of the lesions becomes hugely painful, get see at once to rule out nasty staph. ...Read more
