What is teenage acne or what are black dots (acne), firsthand knows almost every adult. In adolescence, this is more than a common problem. However, black dots on the shoulders and back may appear later – at an older age.  

Since acne and black spots are a rather unpleasant phenomenon, the fight against them is irreconcilable. And before starting this fight, you need to find out the essence of the problem, find out for what reasons acne appears on the face, shoulders, back.

Reasons internal and external

In general, the following occurs: due to various reasons, subcutaneous fat begins to stand out in excess, gradually filling and clogging the pores of the skin. The result is the appearance on the skin of comedones and acne. Since there are a lot of sebaceous glands on the back and shoulders, rashes of this kind are observed here much more often than in other parts of the body.

In general, the causes of the appearance of black dots on the back and shoulders can be divided into external and internal. Let’s consider them in more detail.

The internal factors that trigger the appearance of acne and acne on the back include:

· Puberty. In adolescence, the production of hormones stimulating the sebaceous glands increases sharply. Black dots on the shoulders and back at this time are the result of their hyperactivity.

Impaired functioning of the organs of the endocrine system.

· Disruption of the digestive system.

Diseases of the genitourinary system.

Gynecological diseases, consequences of abortion, pregnancy.



External causes of black dots on the body are no less numerous:

· Non-observance of personal hygiene.

Improper nutrition – fast foods, sweets, sodas, fatty, spicy, spicy foods, chocolate, etc.

· An allergic reaction to low-quality cosmetics.

· Synthetic clothing that interferes with normal air exchange on the skin surface.

· Stress and constant nervous tension.

· Very tight clothing.

Salon cosmetic procedures, such as peeling, for example, cause the protective layer of the epidermis to wear off, bacteria easily penetrate the dermis, causing various skin inflammations.

· Long exposure to the sun, which stimulates the active work of sweat and sebaceous glands.
