    Re: Bacne

    My heart rate monitor strap can give me some problems.  I think that's more with ingrown hairs than real bacne, but it's still a nuisance.

    The #1 solution I've found it to shower (use a washcloth) as soon after running as possible. Once a week I run with a group and we go out to dinner afterwards, and the next day I'll have a few new ones show up on my back and sometimes legs. There's no opportunity to go home and shower in between, so I just deal with it.

    Since this is the waycool area I'm going to guess that you're in high school, and unfortunately you might just have to suffer it out for a few years. In the meantime all I can say is to not sit around in your sweaty running gear and at least rinse yourself off after running. You sweat out a lot of crud, you don't want it sitting on your skin.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Bacne

    I don't have to many problems with acne although i do somtimes get it on back. Lot's of fun. I asked my doctor about it and he gave me some REEEEAAAALLLY great stuff. It's called 'Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion'. As long as you use it every day, you'll have very little acne. I think it's an antibiotic. I saw a difference within two days!!!!!!!!!!!! It works really well. I know I sound like a pro-active commercial but it totally works. It elliminates any facial acne too. Ask your doctor or your dermatologist.

    I always ran shirtless in the summer, and if I had backne, a sunburn WILL inevitably, (For me) without fail, zap every single zit you have, if it peels even a little. That's kind of asking for skin cancer though, so maybe just go till your red. It worked for me PERFECTLY. And they do actually use ultraviolet for acne-my sister had it once.

    Just don't get too carried away on the burning like me. And other than that staying clean.

    I agree. I thought I was annoying and random.

    Slather on a paste made with body lotion, toothpaste and baking soda for the night for a few months. Worked for me.
