Face vs. Body 

Body acne is a bit different than facial. When you breakout on your body, the technical term for it is folliculitis, which is what doctors consider an infected hair follicle. Regardless of what you want to call it, acne on the body and face looks the same and can be treated with the same products.

Treatment Methods 

Don’t let companies trick you into thinking you need a special product geared towards body acne. The same acne balms, creams, serums and washes you use on your face can be used anywhere else.

If you choose to use your face wash for your body acne, make sure it contains salicylic acid instead of benzoyl peroxide. Although both are used to treat acne and found in many products, benzoyl peroxide is strong enough to bleach clothes as well. You can also try spot treatments that you might use on your face on your chest and back.

In addition to using a gentle body wash that contains salicylic acid, shower more often to help prevent body acne. This is especially good if you workout to rinse off the oil and sweat. Consistent use will reduce inflammation and keep pores unclogged
