What is Bacne?


What Is Back Acne?

While ‘bacne’ isn’t a word you’ll find in the dictionary if you’ve got it you know the term. It refers to back acne, those annoying acne outbreaks on your back. Back acne usually first appears during puberty and is often outgrown by your early 20s, but can, unfortunately, persist beyond these years.

So what’s the deal with back acne? Well, your back is a very large area of skin, and that means it’s also a very large area of oil secretions. Your back pores become clogged with skin cells and the oil is unable to escape as normal. This causes inflammation that becomes back acne.

Back acne can also be triggered when heat and sweat is trapped against the body, and when your skin is irritated by friction. If you’re frequently wearing athletic equipment, tight-fitting clothing, backpacks or anything similar, you might be prone to acne.

Back acne can be stubborn to get rid of and if left unchecked, some people may get cysts that can lead to scarring.  Thankfully, there are many treatments available. As with most acne conditions, the best approach is to find a skin care routine that works well for you – and then stick with it.  If your acne doesn’t start to improve within a few weeks, you should speak to your dermatologist about other treatment options.

Types of Back Acne

The types of acne lesions that can occur on your back include Whiteheads. Whiteheads also referred to as closed comedones, develop when a plugged follicle stays closed and underneath your skin, forming a white bump. Blackheads. When a plugged follicle is located on the surface of your skin and is open, it forms a blackhead, also referred to as an open comedone. The black-tip appearance of blackheads is due to a reaction between sebum and the air, not because dirt has filled your follicle. Papules. Acne lesions that appear as small pink bumps on your skin and are sometimes tender are called papules. Pustules. Also called a pimple, a pustule is a white or yellow pus-filled papule with a reddened base. Nodules. When an acne lesion develops deep below the surface of your skin, it can harden and form a large, painful nodule. Cysts. Cysts are larger, pus-filled acne lesions that are very painful and can scar the skin.

Disability Equality Duty


Disability Equality Duty

From December 2006 The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 will be amended to place a duty on all public bodies to promote disability equality. This will affect all public bodies from local councils to government departments, to universities and hospitals.

Disability Equality Duty will require the public sector to actively promote disability equality. This is similar to the duty to promote race equality under the Race Relations (Amendment) Act.
This is a positive duty which builds in disability equality at the beginning of the process, rather than makes adjustments at the end.  It will bring about a shift from a legal framework which relies on individual disabled people complaining about discrimination to one in which the public sector becomes a proactive agent of change.

How will the Duty be enforced?

In relation to the Specific Duty and those bodies who will have to produce a Disability Equality Scheme, the DRC (Disability Rights Commission) will have the power to issue compliance notices where it is satisfied that a public authority has failed to comply with its specific duties under the regulations, and can enforce the notices in the county or sheriff court.

How can we help?

At the heart of the Disability Equality Duty is the requirement to involve disabled people in producing the Disability Equality Scheme including the action plan.  This has to happen at the very outset as many public authorities will have little experience of involving disabled people. We have been actively involved in writing such plans for our many DDA access audit clients including, The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, Department of Works and Pensions (DWP) Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and Business Link to name a few.
