I only break out in acne in my armpits. I use neutrogena acne body wash, but the acne comes and goes. What else can I do to eliminate the acne?
Dermatologist: See a dermatologist or your regular doctor. Also consider acupuncture/chinese medicine to help balance your body. Stop dairy and gluten...Eat more fresh veggies and fruits.

Are there any prescribed acne body soaps or washes available if so what are they called.. like is there one called acnex soap.. I need specific names
There are: OTC there are several skin cleansers containing salycilic acid and a few with benzoyl peroxide. Get the generics because they are the same for less money. If you have significant acne they will be of little use and you should see a dermatologist. Most adult women with acne respond best to oral spironolactone and to little else. It is safe and cheap. ...Read more
I've got some marks onmy upperbody. Its itchy and filled with dead skin. I believe its acne body mark. It's increasing day by day. Is it acne marks?
Probably not acne.: It is difficult to evaluate a skin condition without examining the patient. I don't think, however, that what you are describing is acne "marks". If it itches, it's probably ringworm, pityriasis alba, or even urticaria. See a physician for appropriate diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the easiest way or medication method to successfully treat acne on body and face? Without drying out skin?
Serious Rx: If you have acne on your trunk, you're going to need both topical and systemic therapy. You're already on topical benzoyl peroxide and a macrolide. Evidently it is not working. Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease that needs to be managed even if you have to deal with dry skin. Options for you now include spironolactone, the oral contraceptive pill, and isotretinoin. ...Read more
Serious stuff: Today's medicine can always clear acne, but I'd urge you to be open to 21st century methods as well as "natural" / "folk". Visible acne is a sign of poor self-care and will interfere with your being able to get the job you want. Nothing's more "natural" than the vitamin-A-based / retinoic acid derivatives (topical, isotretinoin) and antibiotics like tetracycline that can clear you. ...Read more
This is serious: Acne on the trunk won't respond to less than a mix of topical (benzoyl peroxide and/or topical retinoic acid) and systemic (antibiotic like tetracycline) Rx, unless you opt for isotretinoin. All are actually gifts from Mother Nature, but if you try home remedies or "pop" stuff, you'll be disappointed. Acne is a serious, chronic illness and a major liability. You deserve to be free of it. ...Read more
