Thanks so much for writing! This is the type of question that Brenda Watson answers best, although I can certainly say that your issues do seem to be yeast related. There's much more to managing your situation than just probiotics, although probiotics can definitely be lifesavers, like you've experienced.

Regarding probiotics specifically, daily maintenance with 50-80 billion, high in bifido bacteria, is what we generally suggest to support reduction in acne outbreak, and there's no harm in taking the 200 billion for two weeks initially.

I went a year without a cycle and went to the Dr. I was on an antibotic for a few days then diflucan for 10 days and a no carb diet for that time. I started having cycles again and my acne cleared up. Just a few short months later I need to have oral surgery and was back on an antibiotic. Right after that I had a sinus infections and again on antibiotics. Developed cystic acne and my Dr prescribed an antibiotic for that. I was on antiobiotics for four months strait and my acne go worse not better. I got off the antibiotics and tried the Probiotics 200 bill for seven days and my acne started to get better. Now that I am off it it getting bad again. I am thinking the acne is yeast related since the diflucan cleared me up and the antiobiotics made it worse. I am wondering if I should try the vaginal care because yeast balance (even though I dont really have sysmptoms of vaginal yeast ) or should I try the regular 50 billion? Or can I do the 200 billion back to back until my sysmtoms clear? What do you suggest?
