Propionebacterium acnes. This is a common type of bacteria that feeds on sebum produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin.

By controlling bacterial numbers, erythromycin brings the inflammation of the sebaceous glands under control, and allows
the skin to heal.
To make sure the bacteria causing an infection are susceptible to erythromycin your doctor may take a tissue sample,
for example a swab from the throat or skin.
