Dermatology is one of the many areas of the medical community that is constantly evolving and regrouping as we make bounds and leaps in our technology. Another evolution to medical care is the breakaway from the constant push of antibiotics. Tim Ioannides, MD, founder of Treasure Coast Dermatology and recognized for his many achievements and contributions to the Treasure Coast for many years, volunteers his time as a professor to mold the up and coming dermatologist in the hopes that they will provide a more proactive approach to care rather than just pushing the antibiotics. Go To This Page to learn more.
Too much exposure to an antibiotic can develop an antimicrobial resistance to that drug making it lose its efficiency over time of use. For example, topical erythromycin starts to lose its effectiveness in as little as two months. The other problem with just doling out antibiotics no real plan to get off of them. Sometimes it is the only way to help a patient. In those cases, it only takes a little extra care to educate the patient with the idea that this is temporary and a time table of when to wean off of the drug.
That is a physician’s job, to provide a service in pin pointing the best solution for a client and educate them in the process. Sometimes all that is needed to wean them off is a combination of a retinoid and benzoyl peroxide. There are dermatologists that have made it a habit of avoiding prescribing benzoyl peroxide because it bleaches fabric and patients don’t like it for that reason. Again, it goes down to the doctor educating his patient for the best possible outcome.
However easy it might feel to write a prescription, as is evident by the fact that the majority of practicing dermatologist that continue to push them, antibiotics should be avoided as much as possible. It wasn’t too long ago in which acne was believed to be an infectious disease and that’s why antibiotics were pushed so heavily. We now know that to not be the case. As stated earlier, the world of dermatology is ever changing and there are products in the making that are still in their testing phase. Maybe one of them might be the breakthrough doctors and patients have been hoping for and replace antibiotics for good.
