I'm a 17y/o boy with a lot of acne all over my face and chest including shoulders and back. How to get rid of it at least partiallly?

In brief: A dermatologist is

the best type of doc to see for acne.
He/she will help you w/an exam, medicine, and hopefully education on the best type of diet. We all go through it and it's no fun. Keep yourself clean and be good to yourself and others. That's so much more important than complexion yet I respect the fact that this bothers you now. Peace and good health.
