Drinking and bacteria: No, in pretty much all cases it's going to not make things any better and probably worse. Very light drinking of red wine may improve bacterial content of your gut but that doesn't have anything to do with an infection.

I have brownish/dark maroon patch on my cheek after a pimple caused most probably by fungal/bacterial infection....how can I get rid of the spot?

Brown spot=No scar: This is the normal skin reaction when healing after inflammation if the patient is tan or has olive or brown skin. Is called PIH. It's not a scar and it willl fade away with time. To speed up the lightening, protect from sun exposure always, and apply twice a day a cream with hydroquinone (never above 4%), glyzirrhiza or licorice glycolic acid or retinoic acid. Read more

How to get rid of a bacterial infection in the vagina that's been going on for over a year? Tried a Yeast/BV med twice, and am now using boric acid.

Good steps: The key is a proper diagnosis. If BV is the problem then there are a variety of treatment protocols for recurrent cases. One trick is to use Nuvaring for birth control. It stabilizes the vaginal ph to 3.5-5.5 which keeps yeast and BV away. This is a nice and not commonly well known side effect. Read more

What to do if I used doxycycline for acne, but will it also get rid of other bacterial infections I may not know about?

Maybe: Nobody's sure how many people harbor Lyme disease. If you're coming down with Whipple's, it may cure you without knowing. It may also protect you from Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever if you get a tick bite. Beyond this, I can't think of any. Few people harbor unknown bacterial infections like these. Best wishes. Read more
