topical antibiotics and tea tree oil?

Recommended Posts

heres my story. i have been using benzamycin for 6+ months, retin-a topical for 3 months, and erythromycin topical solution. i have been using neobenz BP 7% wash but it really dries me out. i was recently prescribed tetracycline and have been on it for about 5 weeks. i havent had the results i want from these treatments and it has been long enough. i recently looked into tea tree oil and so i bought the desert essence tea tree oil blemish stick along with their face wash and pads. is it ok to use things like tea tree oil while also using the erythromycin topical? i usually put the erythromycin on in the morning. should i continue using it and just put the tea tree oil at night or use both? would this cause any problems?

basically my question is, will tea tree oil interact with any of my medicines? i plan on talking to my dermatologist about this but i wont be able to for a few days.
