Hi! Lucia salgado,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Acne is very common on back and there it usually leaves scars and marks too.There are various treatments available but the best of the lot is (esp if you are getting scarring ) is isotretinoin tablets .These have to be taken strictly under a dermatologist supervision .You should discuss all the side effects of the same.Its a wonderful drug otherwise and gives you permanent relief from acne.Along with this you can also go for chemical peeling and micro dermabrassion at some reputed skin clinic.If there are black spots on the back then you can also apply tretinoin cream locally at night.Drink plenty of water and also take good 7 hr sleep in night which would help preventing pimples.
take care,
