Chest acne. What can I do?
10 months ago
Got acne on chest three months back. Scars on chest/shoulders still there. Did all blood tests CBC, sugar, cholesterol, thyroid, creatinine all ok. Left shows 1.2 bilirubin but sgpt/sgot all ok. HIV and hepatitis tests done in 2011 prior to marriage all negative and no any kind of sexual activity outside marriage and risky behaviour. Consulted two dermatologists both diagnosis as acne and reaction to medicine (taken for hard stools). Currently on vitamin c, kojic acidcream, sulphur soap worried.

This should be that hard to treat. I would treat with Retin A (2-3x per week), chemical peels, and possibly lasers. Botox in micro amounts has also been effective in the recalcitrant cases.
