What Are The Causes Of Back Acne

Mar 4, 2008
Back acne comprises part of the disease of the skin called Acne vulgaris or otherwise commonly know as Acne. Acne is perhaps the most common of all skin conditions, especially in young adults and teenagers, where it has been reckoned to affect over 80%.

While the majority of the time acne is completely harmless, it can be a terrible source of embarrassment and depression for teenagers. People only think that Acne only affects appearance. As one whose son had this condition, I have seen at first hand how distressing it can be. It does nothing for the self esteem of the sufferer. I hope that this is not forgotten.

It would appear that back acne is not triggered by hereditary, stress or other factors such as poor diet. However it has has been acknowledged that long hair will exacerbate the pores on the back. Therefore if you have back acne and long hair, a commonsense approach would be to keep your hair off your back until the condition is healed.

Some experts have presumed that formation of back acne could be due to similar type of factors as other forms of acne such as facial acne. One of the major causes is during times when the body is going through significant hormonal changes.

Any type of acne can come out on the back including whiteheads and blackheads, papules (a deeper) or the acne can form deep in the skin and cause acne cysts.. The skin of your back is much thicker than the skin that covers other parts of the body where acne is prone to appear.

The majority of people do not wash their backs as well as they should, so altering this bad habit will bring about quick results. You also do not want the skin on your back to get excessively dry.

When you do find that acne appears on your back, a commonsense approach is not to wear tight clothes. In these days of fashion statements, this could be hard. However the important factor to remember is that you want to clear this skin disease up quickly and not have the condition advancing further. You also have to remember that the tight clothes will make your sensitive skin more irritated and as a consequence cause more of the acne.

It might be a good idea to correct your diet and monitor the results. In the long run, it will improve your overall health and should improve your form of acne. However where the case of back acne is moderate, this can be addressed by using over-the-counter products or prescription medications.

But when the back acne becomes or is severe, and causes cysts, it is imperative to seek out the expertise of a skin doctor. Most importantly you are wanting to help minimize the possible scarring that could result.
