I'm 44 and for the first time ever not only do I have acne, but I have it on my back.  It's gross and really bothering me.  Anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of it?  I did buy a long scrubby thing (a 'back strap') in hopes that exfoliating it might help.  Anything else I can use?  I like to wear my hair up off my neck when it's hot and sticky and that mess is so unsightly. 



Happy single mama of Girlchild (10) and Boychild (9).

I'd like some advice too! I'm glad I found a boat-necked tankini a couple years ago that totally covers most of my back, because I just would not be comfortable otherwise. I haven't been able to find another swimsuit like that one since!


I have dealt with this before, but never had a solution. When I was pregnant, all of my skin was awesome! It stayed like that for a really long time, but I think around the time that dd weaned at 3 was when my back started getting ugly again. Yuck.
