Back acne, or “bacne” is the most common form of body acne. While facial acne is most common, back acne runs a close second. If you’ve noticed acne on your back, neck, or shoulders, you’re not alone. You can get “bacne” even if you don’t have acne on your face.
You may feel back acne before you see it unless you hold a mirror to check out those bumps and itchy or painful spots on your back. It can range from annoying to severe. If you have moderate-to-severe back acne, that is painful or embarrassing, it’s time to see a professional.
