You have never had pimples or zits or any of that stuff before. Your skin was super clear. And then out of the blue, what do you get? Back acne of all things! Unfortunately, it is adults that usually get a sudden onset of it. Through no fault of their own, they are now covered with dots.
Sudden back acne is a real problem that is quite baffling to many people. Why do you get back acne suddenly one day? How does it happen and why? These are just some questions that many researchers have pondered about. Let’s look at what causes sudden back acne.
Potential causes could be stress, a change in diet, or a change in lifestyle. In adults, the most likely cause is probably the first one. When stressed, the body produces more chemicals that get pushed through the skin. Sometimes this can cause blockages in glands and follicles. This in turn get infected resulting in the inflammation that you see.
If you suddenly change your diet to junk food or fast food because your schedule has changed unpredictably, this can increase the amount of oil that your body secretes on a daily basis. If your lifestyle changes from an active to a sedentary one maybe due to a job change or something, it could lead to your organs not working at their best potential thus leading to different issues like this.
Unless you have a really bad case of sudden back acne, you do not need to worry too much. Try some of these treatments until your symptoms subside.
Wash the affected areas twice a day with gentle cleansers that are not oil or alcohol based. Try massaging aloe vera gel in as well. After washing, dry thoroughly.
There are numerous creams and ointments out there that you can use as well.
Maintain a healthy diet, get enough sleep, and stay active. The healthier you are overall, the less of a chance anything wrong will happen.
