How can I get rid of spots and blackheads on my chest, back and shoulders areas?

Dermatologist. Seek out a dermatologist to diagnosis your condition and give you treatment options. Without a propper diagnosis you are only guessing and your home treatment may make it worse. You may need to take antibiotics to clear your skin.

Scientific Rx. No topical agent is strong enough to control acne on the trunk. Keep using topical benzoyl peroxide and get with your personal physician as well for prescription-strength rx. You may be a candidate for a low-progesterone oral contraceptive pill which may clear you. Read more...

Not treatable. Some of the spots are probably due to acne while others are probably solar lentigos. The acne marks fade after several months; the others are permanent. Watch your skin for signs of melanoma. If you still have acne, manage it. Use a sunscreen. Many of my students, make and female, have these spots; no one minds; they are relics of a vigorous youth.

For example, microneedling is a safe and effective option that can be used on all skin types. Other options include chemical peels and laser treatments. The 'tincture of time' can also be effective as these scars will lighten up over time even if you do nothing at all. Skin lightening creams can also help. Read more...

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.

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...
