Is acne on my chest, shoulders, back, etc. the same as acne on my face?

Acne on your back, arms, chest and shoulders, etc. is caused the same way that facial acne is. However, it can also be aggravated by rubbing by, for example, your clothes. So in addition to following the same advice that I provide for facial acne in Acne Treatment in Three Easy Steps, you can also try to cut down on excessive rubbing of your back, arms, check, shoulder, etc. skin.
