hi there. acne of the back is difficult to get rid of easily. what you should do is
1. use salicylic acid body wash twice a day
2. session of IPL every 3 to 4 weeks
3. microdermabrasions for dark spots
4. avoid oily junk food oil over body
6. red acne spots need cream clobetasole+ momet combination
7. may need to take doxy 200 twice a day for 2 weeks.
then see the effect. all the best.
