In brief: 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).
