My back used to be quite bad and it just happened that I started using Sanex shower gel and I've never had a problem since. I don't use it anymore and it may just have been a coincidence but it certainly helped.

Try a good loofa and neutrogena body wash.

I find I get spots on my back from fake tan especially the salon ones.I presume there is extra oil or something in fake tan?So mabe(if you do use fake tan?)-lay off it for a while.I also find a loofa excellent for my back. Hope this helps :wv

Hey Mini, There is a good chance your hair conditioner could be clogging pores. I noticed I only got back spots under where my hair fell no matter what the length I had it. I tie my hair back after putting in the conditioner and give my back a good washing but when you rinse it out it'll still get some conditioner on it so another alternative which I find good is to use a spray conditioner when dressed after every second wash. It seems to work, I get very few nasties on my back now. VO5 have a great spray conditioner. Bee
