I've had bad body acne for as long as I can remember. It is especially difficult during the summer because it makes me self-concious about exposing my upper chest and back.

I already scrub my back and chest as best I can with a loofah and acne wash while in the shower. I've tried Differin and Retin-A and they helped marginally in the places I was able to apply them. I've only had a respite from the problem once, after a particularly vicious early summer sunburn took off the first few millimeters of skin.
Does anyone have any non-cancerous body acne remedies? Preferably non-prescription, since I no longer have insurance and am working on a limited budget.
