Help, please!

Has anyone had a rash/type pimple problem on shoulders/chest/upper arms? I mean real... bad white-head type. We've been to a dermetologist and nothing is working. Any advice? The tween in question is 11

  • I used to then I started washing my hair first and my body last and it cleared up. Your shampoo will leave residue which will cause you to break out

  • Try rubbing alcohol and see what happens that way they will dry up and disappear.

  • really could be from high hormone levels, but i would cut way back on sugar! it only makes it worse. be sure to shower daily. i have read posts suggesting honey masks too.

  • I agree with the idea os wash hair first and body last..
    Also, Ive used Duac before for pimples like that. You apply at bedtime every night, sleep in a white tshirt that you dont mind messing up because it will take color out of colored material, and then wash off in the morning. It works really well.
    It's a prescription med.
