Keep in mind that just because your body skin can take more than your facial skin, it doesn't mean you should go overboard with the acne treatments. Blasting your skin with everything you can think of will probably make things worse! It's important to keep an eye out for any kind of irritation you experience. If your body skin gets red or dry, simply take a break from all the treatment products and don't use them again until your skin feels normal. Also, actives like salicylic acid and AHAs will make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so you'll have to practice proper sun protection . (FYI, benzoyl peroxide tends to bleach fabric, so wear light-colored clothes if you use that as a body acne spot treatment!)

Tuberculosis (TB) is among the most common infectious diseases and a frequent cause of death worldwide. TB is caused by the bacteria Mycbacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) and is spread mostly through the air. M. tuberculosis can affect any part of the body, but disease is found most often in the lungs. In most cases, TB is treatable and curable with the available first-line TB drugs; however, in some cases, M. tuberculosis can be resistant to one or more of the drugs used to treat it. Drug-resistant TB is more challenging to treat – it can be complex and requires more time and more expensive drugs that often have more side effects. Extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR TB) is resistant to most TB drugs; therefore the patients are left with treatment options that are much less effective. The major factors driving TB drug resistance are incomplete or wrong treatment, short drug supply, and lack of new drugs. In the United States most drug-resistant TB is found among persons born outside of the country.
