A Common Virus May Zap Zits

Could there be a virus to zap zits? Newsmax has a report from California researchers who have taken a step toward finding out with their discovery that a harmless virus already living on your skin has the power to seek out and destroy bacteria that can cause acne.

“Harnessing the power of this virus – or even just part of it – may lead to an effective treatment to replace many current treatments, some of which have potentially serious side effects.”

“Although the results are preliminary, the concept has potential, says Dr. Michele S. Green, dermatologist with New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital.”
