The bottom line is that tea tree oil should not be used at low concentrations of less than 4 percent, to ensure that the bacteria are killed, not just emphasized Otherwise we are just arming the bacteria are resistant to treatment by antibiotics .

Both drugs significantly increased the proportion of macrolide – resistant streptococci compared to the placebo. All of the people proportion of macrolide – resistant streptococci higher after azithromycin treatment than after clarithromycin use. Azithromycin selected quantitatively more resistant organisms in the early post – treatment stages, while the quality selected clarithromycin erm gene, the high-level macrolide resistance. In addition, the effect lasted for a single course of antibiotics to the naturally occurring non-pathogenic bacteria in the mouth for more than 180 days, which means that these bacteria can serve as a reservoir stresses resistance for potentially pathogenic bacteria .
