Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have acne on back which occurs when there are hormonal changes, dandruff, hair follicle infection, stress and clogged pores of sebaceous gland filled with sebum ,dead skin and bacteria get infected. I would suggest you to apply Adapelene gel once at night. Apply antibacterial ointment topically such as betnovate. Avoid oily and fried food and make use of product containing benzoyl peroxide. Take Multivitamin supplements. Drink plenty of water daily and add fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. If condition doesn't start getting better in a month then consult dermatologist. Doctor may prescribe antibiotics course.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
