Really bad acne and blackheads all over chest, back and face. I have big pores how do I get rid of them?

In brief: Serious Rx needed

Acne on the trunk won't respond well to anything you can do on your own.
Start using topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated and get with your personal physician now. If a course of a systemic antibiotic does not clear you, the next offer may be Isotretinoin from a dermatologist; it's not for the faint-hearted but i'd urge you to try it if it's suitable.
