So than what can i use to kill the bacteria??

Im usign retin-a micro which so far is doing a good job... waaaaaay better than differin.

In the morning i use spectro jel and SA acid scrub, and afte aloe vera.

In the night i use spectro jel, SA acid wash and than retin-a micro .1%

Would this be enough to kill the bacteria??

Or shoudl i include something else???

I dont know if my regemin is working, or if its the minocin...

but my prob is that bp makes me break out...

And i can tjust start putting on more anti-biotics... im using retin-a i dont know if they would mix well.

Does that mean nothing i use kills bacteria??????????

How about if i use a lemon once a day? Is that sufficent??

Im really looking for anything other than bp or anti-biotics

There are some OTC products with sulfer in them, that's supposed to kill bacteria, I think. Be careful with that retin A thought, don't mix a lot of products with it, that's supposed to be the harshed acne med, that I know of anyway.

Tea tree oil kills the bacteria too so do products that have triclosin in them. I'm not sure if you are to use SA with retin a products. Are you under the care of a derm? They should be able to direct you to the right products that don't interact with each other.

Well it is acid lol

I dont think much bactria can live in an acidic enviroment...

I just assume you should leave it on long enough for it to take a good affect at killing bacteria,
