Topical Antibiotic Dangers?

1 post in this topic

This may be a dumb question but do topical antibiotics have any of the same dangers as oral antibiotics? I know that acne bacteria can eventually become resistant to topical antibiotics, but can topical antibiotics somehow cause gut issues or any of the other terrible side effects that oral ones cause? I know you are not swallowing topical ones but they are clearly absorbed in your body through your skin. I am using Duac right now on my face, neck, and shoulders and it is working great. Thanks in advance!
