Body Acne

Why do you have Body acne ?

Body acne are seen as red bumps and pus filled lesions mainly affecting the back, buttocks, chest and shoulders.

Body acne (specially acne on buttocks ) is more severe, can leave marks and pigmentation which is resistant to regular treatments.

There can be multiple factors causing body acne: 

  • Increased sebaceous (oil) gland activity 
  • Bacterial and fungal infection
  • Diet (high glycemic index food items / low fat dairy products)
  • Hormonal imbalance 
  • Puberty 
  • External environment 
  • Products applied on face 
  • Smoking 
  • Seasonal changes 
  • Certain oral medications 
  • Genetics 

Most of the time it is a combination of multiple causative factors which result in body acne. 

What can you do about it ?

There are several effective treatments available for body acne, which can be based on the severity and underlying causes of the acne. 

These include:

  • Topical medications: Prescription-strength topical medications containing ingredients such as retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, or salicylic acid can help unclog pores and reduce inflammation. 
  • Oral medications: In some cases, oral medications such as antibiotics, hormonal contraceptives, or isotretinoin may be prescribed by a dermatologist to treat more severe cases of body acne.
  • Chemical peels: Chemical peels use a solution to remove the top layer of skin, which can help to unclog pores and reduce the appearance of acne. 
  • Laser therapy: Laser therapy can be used to reduce inflammation, kill bacteria, and promote healing of acne-prone skin. 
  • Extraction: Dermatologists may perform a procedure called extraction, which involves using special tools to remove blackheads, whiteheads, and other types of acne lesions from the skin.
