Hi! I'm a 15 year old male and I can't take off my shirt in public because of my insecurity about my back acne. Its only on the top, and my mom is forever inviting poeple over to our pool and i always make excuses on why i can't do it. What do I do?

Have you seen a doctor? sometimes UV therapy can make a world of difference in helping to draw out the impurities and dry out the skin. Talk to your mom and ask her if you can have a couple days a week that you can just sit out in the sun for a few minutes without the threat of people coming over. It's sometimes just a part of being a teen, when your hormones are going crazy that you over produce oils and your skin goes crazy. I used to have it badly. Try a cream with salycillic acid in it. it helps mine. Also make sure you drink a ton of water and not a lot of sugary drinks. :)0
