  1. The best and the easiest solution. Wash your face with benzoyl peroxide before applying clindamycin. BP is a very powerful oxidizing agent and hence it does not trigger resistance. using it in combination with clindamycin guarantees not developing a resistance for the drug. switching antibiotics is very bad. Do not switch antibiotics untill you are done with a complete course. keep using clindamycin.
  2. if you have been using tetracycline continuously all these four months, i doubt its resistance. if you discontinued for a week or so, it might be resistance. try doxycycline! its a second generator tetracycline.
  3. why are you taking erythromycin?? That is prescribed only if you are allergic to pennicillin antibiotics... do NOT go on bactrim. it has serious side effects, and its not gonna help you a lot. if you are not allergic to pennicillin, I suggest you go on doxycycline - 100mg twice a day. Minocycline is pretty good too, but i prefer doxy! You can also slow down oil release into your skin by using Retinoids. Start with tretionoid. If you are male, accutane wouldnt be a bad choice. if you are f
  4. Alright, Doxy is an awesome antibiotic. But it has a few side effects. If you have terrible stomach ache, it could be stomach ulcers. Doxy can cause ulcers if you dont take it with enough fluid. make sure you drink a lot of fluid. Despite what others say, I dont think you should have doxy with food. Doxy forms a complex with iron. Hence try to avoid doxy with food rich in iron like Milk and dairy products. the amount of doxy absorbed by your body is lowered if you eat it with food. Try to take
  5. try to get dicloxacillin sodium 500mg, if this doesnt work this either means 1 or 2 thins 1)you have gram negative MRSA staph bacteria and you need sumthing like ampicillin or 2)you have acne and only acne bacteria. p.acne Sorry DckSteel, thats bull shit. Gram negative folliculitis is caused by E. Coli or other gram negative bacteria. Staph is gram positive. MRSA is mithicilin resistant Staph, which is a HUGE deal. You have very few options if you are infected with MRSA. It is even know

  7. Lol thanks so much for the input. I know when on antibiotics you should avoid alcohol but these seem different. So i thought i would ask as most leaflets state it. Your a star, thanks again. I'm going on a drinking session then :dance: many antibiotics dont interact with alcohol, but it is really bad have alcohol while on antibiotics because antibiotics put a huge load on the liver and the kidneys and alcohol does that too. Unless you want to have a failed liver or kidney down the l
  8. Hello, You seem very knowledgeable as far as antibiotics and folliculitis are concerned. I currently have horribly annoying folliculitis. It's been bothering me for a long time now. My pimples are in my beard region, and do typically have a hair coming out of them. I went to a doctor, who cultured them, and determined it to be gram-negative bacteria. They put me on a course of antibiotics and nothing happened. I went to another doctor, and I'm now on Accutane for the fifth time. Do you th
  9. you gotta face the fact, all antibiotics make bacteria resistant. Its evolution. Bacteria are living things too, in order to survive they change the way they are. The more you try to kill them, the harder they try to survive. In the end, its just a battle of evolution. Its either you evolve to wipe it out, or it evolves to wipe you out. P.S. lets say, you are trying to fight P. Acnes. you can kill it by introducing a LOT of oxygen in its environment, or by trying to change its internal stru

  11. just wanted to point out, Fluclox and Clox are two different compounds. Fluclox is for meth resistant staph. it has a fluorine and a chlorine in the ring, which is why it cannot be broken by the penacilase produced by the bacteria.
  12. boys... dont use clindamycin unless you have too. I personally LOVE clindamycin. It is so dahm effective. It cleared my folliculitis is no time when i was younger. But I have become resistant to it. So it doesnt work anymore. unless you want to live on it for a lifetime, consider not using clindamycin. again For Acne, use BP as a topical treatment. Use Minocycline or Doxycycline for oral treatment. Wash face with salicylic acid fash wash first. During the day, use sunscreen (Very important)
  13. thats a huge dose dude... 500mg is a lot. 250mg 4 times a day is perfect.
  14. well if it wasnt folliculitis why was i prescribed accutane like 5 times? why did all the derms and docs prescribe me so many acne meds? Why is my skin always so oily? why was it everytime i told them that "hey why is this stuff always around hair" they told me thats normal. but then again. i also noticed yes the cloxacillin cleared it up in 3 days and also my acne was always around areas of hair growth on back, shoulders, chest, face (always in the area where my beard is) sometimes it was ev
