How are you? Body acne is generally caused by clogged pores that attract dirt and and eventually suffocate the skin. Sweat, oil and dirt collect in the pores and promote the growth of bacteria beneath the skin. Although this process is similar to facial acne, bacteria and friction from clothing normally cause body acne. Wearing, lighter, more breathable clothing and washing all affected areas with a waterless cleanser on a daily basis help. If it persists, prescription medication may be indicated. Take care and best regards.
