Can anyone tell me why I have acne on my chest? Is it common?
Hello, I am a 19 years old female. I have acne on my chest. I don’t have acne on my breast but it is on my chest. The area is reddish. I haven’t tried anything yet but I want to know why I have acne on my chest? Is it common?
@alina Hello, Chest acne is very common, as well as acne on the back and shoulders. It is very easy for glands in these regions to become clogged with oil and bacteria leading to inflammation and acne. Factors like dehydration, hormonal fluctuations, working out, dry skin and sun exposure, and oily moisturizer causes acne on the chest. Lifestyle changes can help you get rid of acne on the chest. Lifestyle changes like avoiding foods high in sugar content, avoiding applying makeup, perfume, or lotions to areas like the chest. Chest acne is a common skin condition. If you witness a cyst or nodule then seek medical help. Thank you.
