I've got mild acne on my back and one of my upper arms (strangely only get it on one arm for some reason). Just wondered if anyone has got any products they could recommend that would help. I know Clinique had a body spray that was supposed to be good but they discontinued it before I got the chance to try it. Is there anything else similar out there? Thanks!

When I had a spotty back I found a body lotion with glycolic acid sorted it out. I used a Neostrata one with around 10%.

You might also want to try an at home peel on your back once a week (might need a helper!). A BHA one might be good.

Yes! Boots tea tree back spray, it's amazing!

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out although the body peel sounds a bit scary!

i have used Clearasil Salicylic pads on mine and they have really helped. i'd never use them on my face though.

My DD2 has really bad acne in her back/shoulders, down her arms and her chest along with her face! Tried long term antibiotics to NO effect!! Refused the lotion from GP as it contained bleach that can come out of your skin when you sweat!!
We have found FREEDERM anti bacterial wipes to work really really well! Boots often have them on offer as they aren't cheap! Basically acne is a bacterial infection and will spread by contact! Good luck - we are now using bio oil on the patches that have cleared up to help with the scarring
