If you have back acne and chest acne you know that they are frustrating and hard conditions to treat. The two main reasons are:
1. Back and chest skin is thick, and facial acne products don't penetrate it well.
2. The causes of back acne and chest acne are often different than those for the common type of facial acne. Most acne medicines don't treat these issues.
In my dermatology practice, the major cause of most back and chest acne is a yeast germ called pityrosporum. This germ also plays a role in dandruff and its related skin problems.
The non-prescription medicine zinc pyrithione helps fight pityrosporum. Zinc pyrithione isn't typically included in acne products, but Dr. Bailey Skin Care Foaming Zinc Cleanser contains zinc pyrithione at the highest level allowed. This makes it the best and most complete acne skin care product for treating back, , and body acne.
My Foaming Zinc Cleanser lifts oil and dirt from your skin and reaches deep into your pores, where the pityrosporum yeast is growing. Because the same yeast germ plays a role in scalp acne and dandruff, Foaming Zinc Cleanser is an excellent dandruff treatment shampoo, again delivering the highest level of medicated pyrithione zinc available to help control dandruff-related skin problems.
I've treated thousands of patients with back and chest acne over the past 25+ years of my dermatology practice. My Foaming Zinc Cleanser is a professional skin care product that targets what I have seen over my years of medical practice to be a primary cause of back acne. This medical experience is what separates professional skin care from over-the-counter skin care. Giving you a product to help control the often overlooked pityrosporum yeast is the "secret" that often clears back acne, making Foaming Zinc Cleanser an important ingredient in any successful back acne treatment.
