Spots on my Upper Torso - Are These Normal?
- Asked by markc in Scotland

I'm 18 and have spots on my upper torso. They're on my chest, upper arms, shoulders neck and on my back. They're proper spots, like the kind you would get on your face.
Are these normal? I'm slightly overweight, so would that be a factor?
Spots on the torso- are they acne?
Without examining you it is difficult to say what the lesions you describe are. The areas you name are common locations for acne to appear. It sounds like you need to be examined by a board-certified dermatologist.
Spots the Chest and Back
There are many different dermatological conditions that can give rise to "spots" on the trunk. I recommend evaluation by a board certified dermatologist to provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.
