Help me get rid of my back acne

I had perfect skin until I learned I had a clotting disorder and had to stop using Nuvoring. Now in addition to regular outbreaks on my face, my back is constantly greasy and covered with acne. Is there anything I can do?

My back used to be my favorite feature - I am a strong, healthy 30 y/o woman with a muscular back. It is now constantly greasy and covered with white heads. Is there anything I can do? I can't take hormonal birth control, nuvoring, etc. because of the clotting disorder (I care about my acne, but not enough to jeopardize my health!).
I use retin-a on my face, seems to help a bit but I still have constant zits.
I really miss my Nuvoring - my skin was nearly perfect for months at a time! Any advice to reclaim my back?
