Thanks for posting your query.
Acne on the chest and back is caused by many factors like obstruction to oil duct in the epidermis, increased oil secretion, increased influence of androgen and increased bacteria p. Acnes.
So you need to take powerful drug like isotretinoin on the advice of your dermatologist.
It is a disease where good control can be achieved.
I hope it is clear.
Have a good day
