New research says that young adults who take oral antibiotics to clear up their acne may be
setting themselves up for more serious health problems. The antibiotics currently being prescribed by dermatologists work by killing the bacteria that causes acne, but may also be changing the
balance of good bacteria in other areas.
The study which was published in the Archives of Dermatology involved hundreds of college students. The findings showed that those who
take oral antibiotics were two to four times more likely to have more
sore throats than their peers. The antibiotics change the bacterial balance in the throat. This encourages bad
bacteria called Strep-A which then causes strep throat, and can lead to more serious infections once the bacteria enters the bloodstream.
