In brief: Depends Upon Extent

For limited and localized acne, topical therapy would be indicated using benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid preparations.
If the entire back is involved with large inflammatory painful lesions, then systemic antibiotics would be more practical. These may be prescribed by your physician.
