In brief: It works

Part of the complex problem of acne is a particular bacterium that likes the oils in the skin.
They are impossible to eliminate, but keeping these creatures at bay goes a long way to controlling acne. You'll weigh the risks and benefits with your physician and make the right choice. Good luck.
