    Acne on back/shoulders (can't show off)

    Alright.....I for some strange reason have come across a bad case of acne at this point in my life and I'm friggin 19yrs. old. I used to prefer working out with my shirt off for the same reasons anyone does....mostly to show off. I am 5'9, I weigh 175 and have right at 9% BF, so I am very comfortable with doing so. I have recently gotten back into lifting hardcore again and I want to work out with my shirt off, but I keep breaking out on my back and shoulders really bad. My face is fine maybe one pimple a month or something, but every once in a while I will break out on my chest too. I am not on roids or anything and I cannot for the life of me figure out what the problem is. I drink a gallon of water a day, so I thought I would help cleanse my system, but I guess not. I also did hear that milk is bad for your skin, but I really dunno though.....if any of you fellas have any advice on what I might be able to do I would appreciate it because its really starting to annoy me. Thanks in advance.

    I used to have same problem, best advice I can give is get a tan, and use a scrub brush on your back in the shower.

    bro you are still boomin with natural test -- you don't have to be on roids to be breaking out back there, just make sure right after you work out you hit the shower asap -- in time it will get better, I'm 18 and I sometimes have teh same problem -- it's just part of growin bro.

    If you're that worried about it......

    You could stop being a suck-ass pussy and not worry about what people think of you or you could go to the doctor and get "Accutane." A very powerful drug.

    I really wouldn't recommend accutane unless you are constantly showing your shoulders bro. That stuff will dry the hell out of your skin -- not that it doesn't work but you might prefer acne over the results lol..

    I would say it is the milk.

    All dairy products will cause acne (in excess i.e. the ammount bb'ers eat).

    Milk is probably the worst. It wont affect some people at all, but for some, and especially teens it can be terrible.

    I kinda have the same problem. It was pretty bad a few months ago but that was because I was scratching it and that made it worse. I stopped touching the spots and it practically went away.

    I also noticed tanning helps a lot.

    dont take accutane its to hardcore its for quite severe acne that has a risk of scarring. also dairy products can cause acne due to the hormone from the cows! n as for gettin a tan it doesnt necessarily get rid of acne it just hides it due to change in colour of ur skin. so if ur guna get a tan stay tanned all year! n have a shower strate afta ur workout.

    ****.

    I never had terrible acnce, just a few annoying zits on my face but usually went away with benzol peroxide and my skin was clear most of the time.


    ....then i started having a sh!t load of milk, and man oh man.. now im gettin it pretty bad on face, a little on arms, and crap load all over my legs (wtf on my legs?)

    i thought it was the creatine. why the **** does milk have to cause acne. it simply isnt fair.
