Banish Back Acne (Backne / Bacne) – Natural Home Remedies

Only those people who suffer from bacne can tell how annoying it is to have a condition like that. If you haven’t heard about backne before, then consider yourself one of the luckiest people.

It is not uncommon for men and women to have backne. Bacne can infect almost anyone irrespective of their age and gender. Teenagers are more prone to getting backne as they reach the age of puberty, because puberty brings about a lot of hormonal changes inside their bodies leading to excess oil and sebum production by the skin. Ultimately this results in clogged pores and acne.

Bacne is a condition where the acne causing bacteria decides to invade your hind and starts dwelling on the skin of your back. This results in sebaceous glands getting clogged, entrapping all the dirt and impurities and making it a favorable habitat for the infectious microorganisms.

Eventually, the skin on your back becomes inflamed; cysts start growing and acne start breaking out. This acne that spreads on the back is called back acne, but to cut it even short it can be called backne or bacne, informally.

Unfortunately, back acne can be as annoying as the yeast infection that can cause severe itching in your private areas, except that it only makes your back prickly and sometimes causes painful inflammations.
