Large pimples on upper arms shoulders,shoulder blades, chest

Hi I am 38 yr old male. I have been getting large pimples on upper arms, shoulders, behind shoulders, and shoulder blades. These pimples are large and red, but no pus. They leave ugly brown spots. I also get red pimples on chest, but they don't usually leave a scar. I don't eat sweets, soda, coffee,processed foods, artificial colors or flavors and meat every other day, never smoked, no alcohol. This has helped to clear my face but not my arms and back. I also seem to get painful cystic pimples on my face if I eat anything with sea salt. So I never eat sea salt. 15 years ago I took tetracycline and i had good results on face, but started getting pimples on my back for first time. These went away and then came back 8 years ago very aggressively on upper arms and back after taking protein powder to gain weight. I have always had low weight for my height and cold hands and feet. I feel cold often. Please help- very frustrated. Thank you
