I really suffer from pimples and blemishes all over my back, the rest of my body is clear. How do I rid myself of this?

Pimples on the back can be extremely annoying and painful. Acne outbreaks on your back can cause great discomfort when reclining or sleeping. Unfortunately, it is not very easy to apply any medication on your own back. Invariably, people end up trying to scratch the pimple out in sheer frustration which of course leads to scarring. It is therefore important that you do not scratch the pimple.

What you are currently experiencing is an acne outbreak on your back. In most people, acne targets the facial area. However, in some cases, such as yours, acne flares target the back, the shoulders or the arms. Acne is caused when the pores of the skin get blocked. Sebum collects in this blockage and bacteria present in the blocked pore start to multiply. This results in an inflamed bump that we commonly refer to as a pimple. Since an acne outbreak is essentially an infection, you will first have to take certain steps to stop the infection from spreading.

  • Your back is constantly being rubbed against your clothes. Avoid using synthetic material especially rough materials for a while as this will aggravate your pimples. Wash your shirt after every use as this will help to stop the acne infection from spreading.
  • Do not have a hot water shower as this will cause your skin to become excessively dry. This is turn triggers the sebum glands which then produce more sebum to counteract this dryness. Excess sebum can result in an increase in the number of pimples.
  • Use a back scrubber or a loofa to clean your back when you shower daily. This will help to get rid of the excess oil on your back. It also helps to get rid of the upper layer of dead skin cells and so it prevents eruptions.

There is a very effective body pack that you can use on your back to get rid of the blemishes and prevent eruptions. Mix about 1 tablespoon each of fuller’s earth and Bengal gram. Add fresh yogurt to this mix to make it into a thin paste. Apply this to your back and allow it to dry completely before you wash it off. The fuller’s earth in this pack will help to control the amount of surface oil while the Bengal gram will help to eliminate blemishes. Yogurt is acidic in nature and helps to kill of the bacteria that cause cane.

As for the actual process of applying the pack: ask a family member or a friend to do it for you at least once in a while so you can be sure that it is evenly spread. Apart from that you can also apply it yourself. Make the mixture a little thicker than usual and then lie down on your chest. Use an old ladle to slowly spoon the mixture onto your entire back. You can use the back of the ladle to spread the pack so that it covers your entire back Use this pack regularly to get rid of the pimples and blemishes on your back.
