What kind of acne is this?

Hello I'm 18 with acne on my chest and back. I don't really know how to reduce it I've tried the natural remedies like honey etc but I get no results I have sensitive black skin that is mostly dry for anyone wondering btw. So if anyone has a similar experience please let me know thanks!

Hi there!

Have you seen your GP - they have lots of effective treatments (topicals, antibiotics, pill)? If those don't help or you're developing scarring, they will refer on to someone like me at the hospital. I'm a consultant dermatologist in South London but our waiting times are horrendous at the moment! If they can at least get you started on proper treatment, you may never need to be seen at the hospital!
