I keep getting spots small/large/painful/sore and also blackheads all around my chest,back and shoulder areas also they are appearing on my face and neck. i shower twice a day once in the morning and once before bed at night i have tried all kinds of things like changing my washing powder, using different types of shower gels/shampoos/deodorants and soaps yet nothing seems to work. its really starting to get to me as when i look at myself its a depressing sight and making me really self conscious, i just want them gone as it would make my life allot more pleasant please help me. thank you lee.

Symptoms:  large sore spots on back/shoulders/chest/neck/face

A:   You are suffering from Acne vulgaris. Do not panic or get depressed, it can be managed easily by oral antibiotics and topical application of ointments and astringent lotions prescribed by a Dermatologist. It'll take about 6-8 weeks for any noticeable difference in your appearance, so be patient and be regular with your therapy.
