Hi Chitresh

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You are having acne since two years you need a course of antibiotics , retinoids and multivitamin tablets.This will clear up the lesions on your back also.

Oversleeping or biting nails has no relation with acne.

Please visit a Dermatologist for the same and plan of treatment.

Take care.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Acne at this age is common and one can get it over back and shoulders too...there are lot of medicines available for permanent cure.You can start of with taking antibiotics oral and topical...If acne is very sever then one can go for isotretinoin tablets ..which are given only after proper investigations and precautions.Its a wonderful medicine for acne.Its also very important to use a anti acne soap daily ...avoid using any moisturizers...avoid pricking of pimples (that would leave marks)...drink plenty of water..and take good sleep in night...Consult t good dermatologist for the above medicines.
take care,
