Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequelae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse. An attempt to find out the root cause of acne should be made in every patient or else it keeps recurring.

Back or truncal acne is common. Do not panic. It can b easily treated with a combination of oral, topical medicines with or without chemical peeling. Choice of therapy can only b decided by clinically examining ur problem.
