How Does Bacteria Cause Acne?

Recommended Posts

24/m here.

I have had mild acne pretty much since puberty, but the funny thing is that as soon as I go on Minocycline, it completely clears up.

(1) How is a bacteria causing such acne issues? I live a healthy life, drink loads of water, work out, eat right etc..so where is this bacteria coming from?

(2) Is there any natural alternatives to taking this antibiotic? The Dr. won't leave me on the antibiotic for ever as it will eventually trash your liver, but how else can I kill off the bacteria that apparently is the sole cause of my acne?

I'm open to all suggestions..topical treatments just never seem to do the trick outside of tanning, any ideas?
