I can attest to that! I now wash my face with a non-soap cleanser in the evenings to get rid of the make up and Honey in the mornings, which is antibacterial (and makes you smell nice).

I stopped the antibiotics 3 weeks ago now after encouragement on these boards. I bought some high dose probiotics and make sure I get Kefir and Yoghurt every day, that together with the Primal diet seems to have helped. I still get spots, but not as many, and they don't last as long either. I also have fewer of the really sore lumps that just appear.
Ideally I should give up dairy to see if that helps, however that would mean giving up my yoghurt and I really like it!
