aczone does not kill p.acnes

Recommended Posts

i heard that like sodium sulfactmade, aczone does not kill bacteria and no concerns of bacteria resistance. it is just anti-inflammatory. anybody got an info on this. and how are side effects, redness and dryness?

sulfacetamide james leyden did in vivo study and found it did not reduce p.acnes much at all, only mild antibacterial effect similar to l azeliac acid, and has mild inflammatory effect. that is why sulfactmide washes are used long term.

dapsone, i doing searches on google and researchers are saying that it appears to only have anti-inflammatory effect in topical form ,can be used long term. unlike topical erth.and clid. and oral forms
