bacne

I've amazingly bad chest and back acne for about six months now.  It was never so bad until I joined a swim team.  I guess I always figured chlorine was supposed to kill bacteria, even acne causing bacteria, but that's obviously not the case.  I thought it might get better with summer and wearing less clothes allowing my skin to breathe and see the sun, but it hasn't improved at all.  This is extremely embarrassing!!  What can I do?!  Please help?!

See a dermatologist.  There are wonderfully effective prescription meds for acne.  Over-the-counter sometimes just doesn't cut it.
