  • There used to be a body soap product made for that. It was actually in the regular acne related product sections. Check around there.

  • an easy way, and what worked for me because I used to get heat bumps on my back and shoulders is getting an exfoliant towel
    lather it up with some acne wash if its sever, if not then just regular soap and use it on wherever the bumps are.

  • I got a good loofah with a handle attached, squirt some face soap with benzoyl peroxide or salycic (sp?)acid in it on the loofah and scrub like there's no tomorrow. I now have nearly zero back-ne and I feel so much more confident. I do the same thing with a loofah mitt on my upper arms where I get these teeny whiteheads.

  • A salicylic acid wash (like Neutrogena) is good for that.

  • as your pharmacist for panoxyl 5% bar soap. Remember to wash it off good and that it will bleach fabrics.

  • never use a lufa or sponge these things harbor bacteria and if you scrub it may look good then but you'll have more problems later
