    Thanks, that does give me some insight into this whole thing.

    It just seems weird that only an unlucky few, myself included, get this disease. I don't believe that it is natural to get acne and i think its the body's way of letting us know that something is wrong.

    Basically, like I said before, I'm trying to find the factors that separate me and others with the condition, and the billions of other people in the world that have normal skin... And I know for a fact that the reason that those billions of people don't have acne, ISN'T because they take an antibiotic, or use Proactive on a daily basis, like I'm sure the dermatologists and skin car industry would like us to believe.

    I'm, not sure if the problem stems from first world diet, first world chemicals, or actually an immune deficiency from taking antibiotics. The paranoid part of me thinks that there's something that the general public isn't supposed to know about why its primarily the U.S. that gets it and not anyone else really...

    But, any comments are welcomed, thanks.

    Possibility Of Acne Due To Poor Immune System...
    I have pretty bad acne. I've been taking antibiotics for about 4 years now and I'm starting to think that there's a correlation between the immune system and acne.
    Also, as a baby, I had to have surgery so i would have been on antibiotics then too. As a baby, when your body is still developing, being on a certain drug could have a consequense.
    Think about it, if you're constantly taking in antibiotics, whats the point of an immune system? Its just extra work.

    I wanted to know if anyone who also has bad acne breakouts was ever on antibiotics at a young age when your body would've still been developing. Also, if you are and have been on antibiotics for a long period of time.

    Basically, I'm trying to find out what is so different from me and guy with clear skin that has the same diet as I do and same hygene.

    Any opinions will help.
