Should You Consider Taking Antibiotics For Acne? Here's What You Need To Know

Antibiotics for acne are only prescribed for a short treatment time due to concerns about antibiotic resistance, according to new guidelines from the American Academy of Dermatology .

If you're only dealing with whiteheads and blackheads, antibiotics for acne probably aren't right for you. Whiteheads and blackheads are both non-inflammatory forms of acne, Zeichner says, and they're better treated with over-the-counter products that contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, which kill acne-causing bacteria, and salicylic acid, which remove excess oil and exfoliate dead cells from the skin.

So how do you know if you should consider using antibiotics to treat your acne?
