Hello there,
S. epidermidis is universally found inside affected acne vulgaris   pores, where Propioniobacterium acnes is normally the sole resident .Hand washing has been shown to reduce the spread of infection., Acne occurs due to a blockage of oil underneath the skin and builds up with bacteria causing inflammation and develops into a pimple. The common causes of acne are poor diet, stress, genetic, dirt, hormonal imbalances, cosmetics, work-related and drugs. Wash your face with mild soap many times a day. Avoid popping or scratching them. Drink plenty of water. The vitamins which are important for healthy skin are vitamins A,B,C and Vitamin A is an antioxidant and helps keep pores clean. Vitamin B helps improve blood circulation. It helps to detoxify and get rid of impurities from skin. Vitamin E helps in acne breakouts and lightening of scars. Zinc and omega 3 fatty acids are also good for skin. It may not be possible to prescribe antibiotics without a detailed medical evaluation. For more queries and assistance visit a dermatologist. Hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!

Thank`s a lot!It is very useful information!
But,my skin-test show me,that I haven`t Propioniobacterium acnes on my face,but have more than usual S. epidermidis.My doctor said,that S. epidermidis couses acne.I took courses of antibiotics and my skin was better.Would you reccomend me very strong antibiotic to kill S. epidermidis? I just tell your advice to my doctor and together we will think what to do.I won`t took it for myself,only with doctor.Your opinion is very important for me,because I tried all that i can,and none helps.
