Here’s the article that is all over the news right now:
Most important quote from that article – “But the FDA says it has received 131 reports over the past 45 years of severe reactions that resulted in hospitalizations 44 percent of the time but haven’t been linked to any deaths.”
Here’s the reality:
The Center for Disease Control says this: “Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections. Many more people die from other conditions that were complicated by an antibiotic-resistant infection.”
Those antibiotics that your dermatologist so readily prescribes to you for acne (and doesn’t work to get your skin clear over the long run) poses a MUCH bigger threat to you than acne products.
1, Yes, acne products can be irritating.
- That is why it is important to allow your skin to adapt to products slowly.
2. Yes, some people can be allergic to acne products.
- People can be allergic to anything. My niece almost died from eating a peach when she was two years old – she stopped breathing because of an allergy. Are we going to put warnings on peaches?
I think the news should be celebrating the fact there there is a safe way to get acne under control with over-the-counter acne products rather than the very unsafe prescription options out there, like antibiotics and isotretinoin (accutane and it’s equivalents).
