Does anyone else suffer from this? Piog

It's acne on your back. I know some people get it pretty bad as teens and young 20's, but I'm 37 1/2 and still have it a lot. Sometimes it is very painful.

How did or do you get rid of it?

I would go see a dermitologist. My dad had it and I remember him taking some medicine for it.  And what does Piog stand for?

A body wash with tea tree oil in it was what I used when I was a teen.  Oddly enough that was the only acne I got as a teen.  And it wasn't super bad for me.  I hear that adult acne is different though so I would see a dermatologist about it personally.  If you can't do that, I would research adult acne specifically.

Oh, and it could be a diet thing, allergies to wheat can often cause acne.

I will look up tea tree oil body wash.
My sister and I had opposite problems. She had face acne and I had back acne as teens. I preferred the back as nobody really saw it.

I just started having issues with it and I am 31. I use a body wash that is formulated for body acne and it helps a lot.
