    Does Benzoyl Peroxide Kill Staphylococcus Aureus?
    Hi (Dan)

    I'm trying to find out whether benzoyl peroxide kills Staphylococcus aureus and epidermidis. It's not particularly easy or obvious from searching Google. Just wondering if anyone on here (perhaps Dan) has read any studies which conclusively answer this question?

    We all know that Benzoyl Peroxide effectively kills the acne bacteria Propionibacterium acnes, but Staphylococcus is also an acne causing bacteria and plays a particularly important role in the formation of pustules and inflammation.

    I would say yes. If your hair follicle contains a terminal hair, that follicle shouldn't be producing comedones as the hair effectively keeps the follicle open and sebum and skin cells can migrate upwards and outwards without obstruction.

    It still might give you folliculitis though,

    The layer of skin where Staph Epidermidis resides is dead. The cells are dead. No blood supply, nothing.

    Happy to be corrected but nothing you eat or drink is going to efffect a pathogen infecting a dead cell.

    Hi Biggs

    Just wondering if you had a link for that table because I cant see it on the link you provided?

    Just wanted to check the ++ Azelaic acid keratinization; never realised it was that effective.

    Well done on your website, looks pretty cool. I definitely think online consultations will become much more common over the next decade, as you really only need a good quality photo and a description of the issue.

    Can I ask, are you clear of acne and how did you get clear? What type of acne did you have?

    How do you find Epiduo? Is it better than using differin or BP on there own? I worry it might be too drying for me.

    Can anyone post any links to any studies that support this idea?

    What is the proposed mechanism?

    Just curious. Is real sex allowed in this experiment or not?

    Ampicillin is not very effective against gram postive Staphylococcus aureus or propionibacterium acnes.

    Given Ampicillin worked for you, it strongly suggests you have gram negative folliculitis. Maybe read up on that.
