Hello,
Thanks for the query,
chest and back areas are XXXXXXX in sebaceous glands and hence are prone to develop acne.

You can prevent them by doing the following.

1. use an anti acne soap, like acne lak or dermadew acne.
2.drink lot of water
3.use an absorbant powder like talc powder daily, this will absorb sweat and control acne.

If it is not controlled with these measures, treatment with oral medicines like doxycycline or retinoids.
These are prescription drugs and you may need to XXXXXXX a dermatologist.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
