thanks for asking,
you are having trunka acne. use cap Isotretinoin (micronized one - dose 0.04mg/kg body weight) once daily at night. apply benzoyl peroxide gel 10% twice daily in little amount. drink plenty of water and avoid sun exposure during treatment. continue treatment for 2-3 mth for cure.
there is no relation in acne vulgaris and blood donation, so keep donating.
