Back acne is more difficult to treat than facial acne. During the day, it is difficult to keep the skin of the back clean - a person sweats, the sebaceous glands work more actively, and there is no opportunity to refresh. Another cause of acne is unhealthy diet.
It is necessary
- - potassium permanganate;
- - sea salt;
- - dry clay;
- - Sulfuric ointment;
- - tea tree oil.
Take care of your diet before using medications and topical applications. Exclude from the diet all fatty, spicy and salty foods, as their use leads to increased activity of the sebaceous glands. Acne of hormonal origin should be treated under the supervision of an endocrinologist, who will prescribe appropriate therapy.
If the skin on the back is oily and easily inflamed, you can try to dry it a little. Take a potassium permanganate bath every day. To do this, dissolve 10 g of potassium permanganate in a glass of water, mix thoroughly. Add this solution to your bath water until it turns a light pink color. Salt baths will also help disinfect your back - dissolve pure sea salt in water, without dyes and fragrances.
Ask someone close to you to help you fight back acne. You will need "extra" hands in order to apply a cleansing mask on your back. Mix dry clay with sea salt, dilute the mixture with water to a paste and apply to your back. After 20 minutes, the mask can be washed off under running water.
Acne prone skin of the back should be lubricated with disinfectant solutions, applied with antiseptic ointments. Salicylic acid and tar are traditionally used to treat acne, so purchase cosmetics that contain these substances. Any acne treatment that works intensely and deeply is suitable not only for treating the skin of the face, but also for the back. Sulfur ointment dries pimples well and relieves inflammation, soothing irritated skin. Sulfur applications can be used every other day (depending on the severity of acne).
If the acne on the back is severely inflamed, then antibacterial drugs will be needed - inward and outward. The specialist will recommend the most effective formulations, write down the dosage and duration of admission. It is possible to act on acne with tea tree oil - cauterize the inflamed tops twice a day.
