I mean???does it really? And where does it come from? Are we born with p acne bacteria? I don't get how it comes back even after antibiotic use?

I mean people use topicals and use antibiotics, and even though some resistance could occur is taken wrong???I don't get why or how it comes back? It's like it never disappears???I mean I'm not exactly sure how resistance works, but maybe it's just a super bug, But the more I read about probiotics for our gut, the more important I feel they are for our outsides

They are completely natural and serve a function, protecting from other malicious bacteria. Only in context they can cause harm. We are probably colonized with them already during birth. Bacteria are everywhere it is impossible to be sterile.

Yes, I get that they are just there…but i don't really get where they originate from…like there are bacteria that grow on moldy food, but the bacteria on our skin..are we just born with it. I mean when we try and eradicate them…they never truly go away it seems? Or do they?

good question - and now that I am into probiotics, I am pretty sure it is a question of the body defending itself against toxins and that it is a mistake to use antibiotics. I think it would be better to help the body expel or not receive the the toxins in question

Depends. If the acne is constant and never disappears after using different creams, then you might want to see a dermatologist. Acne is sometimes due to bacteria and taking antibiotics would kills the germs. My sister was a classic case. She tried a variety of creams but nothing worked until she took some antibiotics and it disappeared within a week. If the acne disappears and comes back a few days later, then maybe Clearasil or Proactive.

It is said that Acne can never be cured but it can be controlled. There are some preventive measure to be taken for Acne.

The primary cause of Acne is a rise in androgen levels - androgen is a type of hormone. Teens get acne because of the hormonal changes that come with puberty.The type of acne that a lot of teens get is called acne vulgaris.

Natural Treatment to Cure Acne :

  • Cut a lemon in half and gently rub the open-side of the lemon onto the acne. The stinging feeling means it's working.
  • Slice a raw potato in half and apply onto acne. Raw potato can heal as well as act an anti-inflammatory. Again, wash the residue off your skin gently with water after using.
  • Wash your face with honey in the morning.

I'm not sure if this applies directly to your situation, but not all acne is caused by facial bacteria. My acne is caused directly by certain foods (chicken, pasta). I occasionally break out from certain conventional skincare products; they don't make pimples come to the surface, they cause them to form. You'll get a lot of responses about how "acne causing" bacteria will almost always exist on your body, but there are other causes of acne that have nothing to do with that. Not sure if your question was hypothetical or personal, but I wanted to throw this out in case it applied.

It's part of your normal skin flora. Everybody has it. Acne bacteria do not cause acne, excessive sebum production and keratinization does, which supplies the ideal environment for these bacteria to thrive. You'll never win the fight against acne by only fighting against bacteria.
