Taking Oral Antibiotics And Using Topical Antibiotics At The Same Time
Posted 22 August 2012 - 02:43 PM
Anyway, I've got some antibiotic stuff in my drawer that I got prescribed from my doctor. It is a bad idea to use it whilst taking oral antibiotics? I'm not even sure it would work, but I was on Zineryt (another antibiotic lotion) for a year and it cleared me completely (until I became resistant )
Oops my bad I meant to post this in the general antibiotic thread D: !!

I'm still taking the antibiotics, the breakouts seem to be subsiding but it's still weird and frustrating I'm also taking probiotics at the same time to restore the good bacteria.

Back to Glycemic Index, they are found in carbohydrates. Higher value of Glycemic Index means that our body has a harder way of digesting our food in our gut, so it uses our bodys hormones such as Insulin and some other things i forgot, and again, we who suffer acne want to skip this process as much as we can.(Probiotics is one example of good bacteria that helps digest food properly and slowly). You can find low glycemic index food on Google, there are tons of examples on different site. To name a few food that are High in Glycemic Index, and that should be skipped in your meals are bread (wheat products), baked potatoes, white rice. Regular potatoes do also have a High glycemic index value, but at the same time, it has very good nutrients, so its a 50/50 if you know what i mean:)
You should search a little about it and find some things you could try. Give it a couple of weeks and see how it affects you. In my own experience, lowering glyecmic index value helped me alot. Ive never had severe acne, but it sure helped me from calming it down a noch. I felt better, never had stomach aches since chaning diet (2 years ago), never had diarrhea, and my blood sugar and blood pressure calmed down to, which is great, so please give it a try. I hope some of this could be helpful, and good luck to you, dont give up on anything, things happens for reasons, you are not different from anyone if something doesnt work for you, take care!
