I know your body can become resistant to anti-biotics after some time, and it's likely that is what has happened to you. I have never been an advocate of the use of anti-biotics to treat acne. Quite the opposite. You can only take them for so long, and when you are inevitably taken off of them, it's very likely that your acne will return in full force. This is because you haven't addressed the underlying metabolic cause of your acne. (which can be drastically different from person to person) So sure, you could find some new strain of anti-biotics that clear you up again. But you'd only be right back where you are now a couple years down the road.
What have you done, if anything, to address diet? And have you considered blood cleansing? I've seen many members clear their acne by using herbs such as Burdock Root, Red Clover, Dandelion Root, Rooibos Tea, Licorice Root, White Willow Bark, Sheep Sorrel,
Turkey Rhubarb, and a whole host of other herbs. You can make a tea using these herbs fairly easily, and they are inexpensive when purchased online from a bulk herbs retailer. Hell one user started purchasing a tea from the republic of tea company called Get Gorgeous which has a lot of these herbs in it, and she cleared her cystic acne. I can try to find that thread. But absolutely worth anyone's time to try blood cleansing, but only alongside a healthy, organic diet, rich in nutrient dense foods. And i believe it'll be more effective if you make the tea yourself, as you can control how much of each herb goes into it.
80%-20% Alkaline forming vs Acid forming Diet
I don't consume:
*Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs)
As well as the pesticides/herbicides that come with them
My philosophy: Less externally, more internally
Even taking long hot showers in chemically treated tap water is too harsh for acne prone skin
(And that's without a face wash)
