    Ive been getting acne type red marks on my arms/shoulders recently, Ive been natural for quite some time so its not that.......I just started using pro activ i had laying around on them, hope it helps. I really havent done anything new so i have no idea what this is from. I keep picking at it which makes it worse though, i cant stop.

    only on my back, not really anywhere else... I got small red goosebumps on my biceps recently but it doesn't look like acne.

    I unfortunately had this problem from day one.

    Fortunately, I have found the solution. It takes time but it works. I rub Cocoa Butter on my self everyday right after a shower, I used to have a severe case and now finally after a couple of months they are slowly disappearing. I still have some but they are slowly fading away.

    Cocoa butter does wonders, like anything else it will get worse before it gets better and just like everything else, you need to be consistent. Don't slack. You have to do it everyday. Plus my skin is looking mad healthy now. :)

    Let me know how it goes. :cool:

    Have you started taking any liver tonics or detox supplements? That can cause outbreaks as the body tries to get rid of toxins through the skin.

    I dealt with acne shit for a long time.

    Butter and oils did not help me at all. I tried rubbing every kind of oil known to man on my body. I even used car engine oil.

    The only thing that helped was benzoyl peroxide and finally I just used accutane and it got rid of it.

    hey bateman. Sounds like Keratosis Pilaris. Kind of looks like tiny pimples with a whitehead, or chicken skin or red goosebumps, right? They're not zits and won't respond to zit medicines. I had it before and apparently it's pretty common.

    What I did to get rid of it:
    -expholiate really well, daily. Use either the expholiating gloves or a scrub. Loofahs aren't good enough.
    -buy a very good skincream. I used carmol 20...you can buy online at drugstore.com or amazon, or sometimes the pharamcist will carry it behind the counter.

    I had a mild case and did this for ~4 months and it's stayed away. Tanning beds also seemed to help, but I've given up tanning.

    I used to get it a little bit on my shoulders/upper arms/chest. I bought one of these($2 at walmart) [​IMG] put a little body wash on it and use it on my shoulders/upper arms/chest/and back and it has helped. I also hit the tanning booth(twice a week) and put lotion on my body after I shower. Problem has pretty much gone away. Might be worth a try brah...
