So, I have quite a few friends who have back acne, and they all feel super self-conscious about it and they think that it makes them unattractive, and that all people will be totally turned off by it. They cover their skin and they hate swimming because then it's super visible when they are in a bathing suit. I was wondering, is it a turn-off? Or not? Do people typically notice it?
And I know I put this under 'How Do I Look', but that'sonly because I'm not quite sure what else it could go under. I apologize if I got the context wrong!

I think it depends on severity and the guy, but overall I think it is not likely a major deal breaker.1

I used to have back acne as well and seriously I couldn't even wear tanktops because of it. It cleared up as soon as I cut out dairy and processed food from my diet. Back acne is not nearly as bad as face acne though (and less noticeable). I doubt a guy would care if he really likes you. Also, it's a lot easier to cover up, especially if you have long hair.1
