I've heard garlic is a natural antibacterial and does wonders for cholesterol, heart, etc.

However, raw/cooked fresh garlic tends to aggravate my acne and the smell practically seeps out of my pores.

Just wondering, does anyone else have this problem? I can't help it because I love garlic, but for some reason powdered garlic does not have the same effect on me. Curious.

What do you think?

I'm thinking powdered garlic might not be as effective for you because its more processed? Plus, manufacturers might mix some other crap with your garlic powder so garlic might not be the only thing your getting from it.

Are you eating it, or apply it to your face? If you are eating it, are you putting it on anything that could be the culprit (bread, pasta, etc)
