Whenever we talk about acne, we focus on the face, but back acne, also known as backne, is one more common concern than we should watch out for, in fact, a study has shown prevalence of it among people of all ages. In addition, the concern about eliminating body acne increases when we want to wear clothes that show off our back, such as in wedding season! Today we tell you why pimples appear on the back and how to help reduce them.


Acne is a very common chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous follicle that manifests itself mainly with excess sebum on the skin. The sebum clogs the pore and forms blackheads because the sebum oxidizes in contact with the air and darkens - known as a pimple. When the acnes bacterium colonizes it, an inflammatory lesion is formed that we colloquially identify as a pimple. In the body we have a high number of sebaceous glands. Different factors such as sweat and rubbing against clothing can cause acne breakouts on the back, chest, and shoulders, known as truncal acne.
