is their an antibiotic, treating overflowing sebum

Recommended Posts

inflammation is not my problem anymore but I still get cysts because of all that overflowing sebum. (not to mention having to push out a half cup of junk out of my body every morning)

I'm using vitamin A and B5 to take it down but that does not seem to help. and I'm not going higher on my dosage for health reasons.

so is their an antibiotic that can take down the oilyness? like doxycycline?

Antibiotics kill bacteria. Bacteria don't cause overproduction of sebum. If you didn't have inflammation, you wouldn't have cysts; so it is still your problem (cold water only temporarily stops swelling; you'd need to shower under a glacier 23 hours a day to stay inflammation free).

How much water do you drink everyday?

i dont like the idea of anti biotics, but if they are a last resort, 'bactrim' cleared up my oil beautifully, it also is great with acne.
