Chest/back breakouts - what's causing them? (photos)
Wappingers Falls, NY

I've gotten small breakouts on my chest recently, and I've had some on my back too (only realized a few weeks ago, could have been there longer though). I also have some dark marks and reddish-brown bumps on my back and butt from improper shaving (at least 4-5 months). I started using amlactin and neutrogena body acne body wash today- is this an appropriate routine to follow? Do I maybe have something else (folliculitis/KP)? The bumps are not itchy or painful and I have no history of acne.

Chest and back acne
In my practice, we treat this problem with a combination of chemical peels (Melapeels) + Melapads daily. Melapads work because they exfoliate the skin daily and improve surface texture.
