Body acne is common on the chest, back, shoulders, and buttocks, but it can appear anywhere on the body. Like facial acne can be treated and controlled with a good regiment. The cases sever of pimple, may require stronger treatments, so consulting a dermatologist can help with finding out what is right for you. Mild body acne often responds to good daily skin care and over-the-counter treatments. Try using a salicylic acid wash every day. Pads containing benzoyl peroxide or sysilic asid can be wiped over affected areas. You may also want to try a lotion containing an alpha hydorxy acid, such as glycolic or lactic acid. Alpha hydroxy acids help to speed cell turnover, rapidly exfoliating the skin and reducing the number of pore blockages.
When treating body acne, you typically can use several treatment products at once without causing excessive irritation (for example, a salicylic acid wash plus a benzoyl peroxide lotion). The skin on the back, chest, shoulders, and upper arms is tougher than facial skin, and can generally tolerate more powerful treatments. However, the skin on the neck is fairly sensitive. Use treatment products slowly and carefully in this area. If you notice excessive irritation, dryness or peeling on any area of the body, scale back or discontinue use of the treatment product, and consult your doctor.
Body acne can become irritated or you can have more frequent breakouts from things your wearing everyday. It’s not likely that certain articles of clothing or gear. However, the friction caused by certain apparel may aggravate existing cases of body pimple. Rubbing or pressure on the skin can irritate already inflamed follicles and exacerbate breakouts. It’s best to avoid sources of friction when you’re trying to heal body pimple. Sources of friction include: tight-fitting clothing, too-snug collars, backpacks, purse straps, and athletic pads or gear. Students, especially, may want to carry their books in a hand held bag, instead of wearing a heavy backpack. To minimize irritation, shower as soon as possible after exercising. Do not scrub the skin, even with a loofah or body puff.
The neck it is a area where the skin is more sensitive and can become irritated easily so for this you have to be a little more cautious about pimple on the neck. When you starting a new regiment introduce the new products slowly to build up a tolerance to the product. Starting out once every 2 days then once a day, then twice a day as recommended. If you do not introduce the new products slowly and you jump right in to the full regiment, you neck may break out more at first causing you to stop treatment till it clears some on its own and try again. So take it slowly with new products.
Body acne, like other pimple, can be treated and controlled with time and patience, resulting in beautiful skin all over.
