I have some acne on my back. What can i use to cure or reduce it.

Tea Tree Oil -- Apply it directly on each pimple. You can buy tea tree gel which is much easier to apply than the oil and so can be applied to larger areas of the skin. It is not quite as strong as the oil, however, so may not be as effective. Tea tree oil is well know as an antiseptic.

Aloe Vera -- Put aloe vera gel directly on the skin and leave on. It is helpful in preventing scaring and helps the skin heal more quickly.

Colloidal Silver -- Is a natural antibiotic that you can buy as a spray and just spray it directly onto your skin.

Grapefruit Seed Extract -- A powerful disinfectant and antimicrobial. You can buy it in liquid form. Put 10 to 20 drops in two ounces of water and apply to affected areas. You can use cotton balls or a small piece of a soft cloth such as flannel.
