Body acne is a less commonly discussed acne compared to other types because it affects the chest, back, shoulders or buttocks of a person and is not visible on the face.
As we all know acne is an inflammation of the pores and anywhere on the body where there are a lot of pores the chances of developing pimples greatly increases. Body acne varies in its severity from small, mild breakouts, to large, painful cuts and wounds.

Following are several contributing factors that lead to body acne:

  • Perspiration
  • Tight clothing
  • Rubbing through skin due to heavy Backpacks
  • Genetics
  • Taking Poor nutrition
  • Unbalanced Hormones

Body acne should be treated differently compared to other types of acne. People suffering from body acne should wear natural fabrics that are especially designed to keep moisture away from their skin and avoid carrying a heavy skin rubbing backpack until it is completely cured. They should take shower as frequently as possible to drain off all the sweating and regularly apply a cleanser on the affected area. After shower when the body gets dried they should apply products containing benzoyl peroxide on the affected areas.

Although body acne is not a very severe type of acne but when not treated properly it sometimes leads to scars and cysts which when burst results in bleeding and scabbing. People suffering from this type of acne should avoid picking the scab off because this may give rise to worse situations. It is recommended to handle it with gentle and soft hands and when it has fallen off apply ointment to overcome the scars as well as moisturize around the affected areas. In case of numerous white scars it is recommended to immediately take medical treatments.
