I get this issue as well and it’s super common! (I mean think about it–that skin is constantly covered and never sees the sun the air out)

One thing I’ve done is to actually use acne products on the skin there. The skin is usually less sensitive than your face, so I’ve never experienced any issues with dry skin or irritation. You can always try toner or medicated soap that is advertised for the face, or even try medicated body wash specializing in acne.

I’m pretty sure Neutrogena makes an acne body wash that might be worth a try. I’m a little uncertain if that’s the exact brand, but I used acne body wash years ago when my chest broke out. It worked great.

Yep Neutrogena makes an acne scrub body wash. I believe it’s the grapefruit kind.

I’ve got this issue too! Drives me insane; no acne anywhere else on my body… It’s especially bad if i’m sitting all day from work.

I’ve found that using a exfoliating scrub a couple times a week helps.. But I definitely haven’t found the miracle cure yet 🙁

I have this issue sometimes, and my dr. said it’s from wearing tight pants (leggings in my case lol)! The tight fit traps sweat and oils so they clog the pores

It could be folliculitis. If it doesn’t clear up you might need a short course of antibiotics

Try using a loofah to wash it with.

I use plain old dial antibacterial bar soap and if it gets bad I put rubbing alcohol on the bad spots and that seems to help. It gets worse now that I have an office job and sit all day!
