Just as aluminium compounds such as: Aluminium chlorohydrate, Aluminium zirconium tetrachlorohydrex glycine, and Aluminium hydroxybromid are the antiperspirant active ingredient in deodourants, antibacterials are the active aspect of odour reduction. Antibacterial ingredients work to eliminate the bacteria that cause bad odours from areas where sweat is ...

Well, yes, but don't worry. New antibiotics that are active against resistant bacteria are required. Bacteria have lived on the Earth for several billion years. During this time, they encountered in nature a wide range of naturally occurring antibiotics. To survive, bacteria developed antibiotic resistance mechanisms. Therefore, it is not surprising that ...

The safest hand sanitizer from the perspective of reducing antibiotic resistance is the alcohol-based sanitizer. It's effective against a wide variety of microorganisms. Remember, though, that hand sanitizers don't remove dirt and chemicals from your skin, and all of the ingredients in hand sanitizers are left to fully absorb into your skin. Alcohol makes ...

No, you do not have to kill every single (targeted) germ. Often antibiotics are bacteriostatic which means they do not kill the germs but stop them from reproducing. Your immune system then does the job of killing them. If antibiotics are bacteriostatic or bacterizidal can but must not depend on their concentration. Please see Wikipedia: Bacteriostatic ...

First of all, nothing is immune to anything, just resistant, and resisitance itself varies. If you develop a bacterial or viral disease, your body will develop antibodies against it. This makes you resistant to the bacteria or virus, but not immune. If you are exposed to a sufficient quantity of that same agent, you will develop the disease again. This is ...

I think you are imagining a biofilm to be like castle walls; once you've breached the walls, you have free access to the inside. A biofilm is more like a gelatin dessert. Even if you have a biofilm that is large enough to inject into, it will still be a barrier to free movement of the drug. There certainly is interest in local antibiotic delivery, the ...
