Abstract


Generally antibiotics are used to treat acne. The use of antibiotics to treat acne is of major concern as it leads to allergies. The use of antibiotics against staphylococcus aureus and Propionibacterium acne is the matter of issue because of their resistance. So in the current study isolates of Propionibacterium acne and Staphylococcus aureus were taken into consideration. Here instead of antibiotics natural products (Neem, Tulsi, etc) and various brands of toothpastes (Colgate, Pepsodent, etc) were studied for their antibacterial activity. In the current study various brands of toothpaste were used to study the antibacterial activity against acne causing organisms. Promising results were observed against both the organisms. The toothpastes were further studied for MIC. So from the current study, it is concluded that antibiotics can be avoided to cure acne, instead natural products and toothpastes can be used to get rid of it.
