It is painful enough to endure the pressure of acne on the face to find it resurface on your chest. Chest acne is a common problem among people of all age group. The lesions on your chest make it painful to keep your clothes on, making it itchy in the process. Imagine yourself in the office, desperately itching your way through, while in a meeting with your boss. Yes, chest acne now definitely sounds like a menace.
Acne usually occurs as a result of an imbalance in your hormones. It may sometime look red and raised or in the form of whiteheads or blackheads. But whatever it may look like, the most central and most painful issue is that it leads to a lot of irritation. Chest acne especially causes a lot of discomfort when you wear tight-fitting clothes.
One way to cure your chest acne would be to completely get rid of your figure-hugging outfits, which complements yourself from your wardrobe and fill it instead with light and loose fitting ones! As terrible as this option sounds, in fact there are medical treatments for chest acne where doctors advise you to use 2% salicylic acid as a body cleanser during your shower and then to wear light breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. And, this is not all, at night you have to apply benzoyl peroxide on your blemishes gently and carefully. However this is quite a tedious process and takes almost four of your precious weeks. Sometimes for severe cases, doctors even advise patients to take antibiotics, which are definitely not good for your health. These lotions take time since they work on the affected place, curing them, and then stopping the new ones from reappearing.
