ABSTRACT

Antibiotic resistance is a growing health concern that has attracted increasing attention from clinicians and scientists in recent years. While resistance is an inevitable consequence of bacterial evolution and natural selection, misuse and overuse of antibiotics plays a significant role in its acceleration. Antibiotics are the mainstay of therapy for common dermatoses, including acne and rosacea, as well as skin and soft tissue infections. Therefore, it is critical for dermatologists and physicians across all disciplines to identify, appropriately manage, and prevent cases of antibiotic resistance. This review explores dermatologic conditions in which development of antibiotic resistance is a risk and discusses mechanisms underlying the development of resistance. We discuss disease-specific strategies for overcoming resistant strains and improving antimicrobial stewardship along with recent advances in the development of novel approaches to counter antibiotic resistance.

Yes it is a growing concern because it could be possible that no antibiotic will be left to cure the diseases in future because bacteria could develop resistance to every antibiotic since we are using antibiotics without any concern and knowledge and antibiotic stewardship programs make aware people and physicians of antibiotic prescription and use. I have covered these topics earlier here and here.
