can yeast or other types of fungus cause body acne? i have acne on the outer sides of my back running from my shoulders all the way down my back (not as much down the center). i also have it on the front side of my shoulders running down the outside of my arms down to my elbow. and on the upper part of the front of my neck. I dont have nearly as much acne on the top center of my back. the acne on my face seems to directly correlate to my stress lever it has cleared up dramatically now that i am not in school for the summer, however my back has remained the same. i have a sister that had fungus related acne on her forehead a while back and my mother said that the acne on my back had the same "rash like" pattern. my acne seems to be very small pimples but they are somewhat red and inflamed. could this be yeast or another type of fungus? and if so how can i eliminate the fungus?
