So I have mild acne thats almost exclusively on my chin. When I break out it gets bad. I get 3-5 cysts on my chin that take forever to go away.
I took Septra (Bactrim) twice in the last year which worked at stopping more cysts, but the second time i took it, it took alot longer to work and i dont think it quite worked as well as i got a new (but small) cyst when i was taking it which hadnt happened before.
A few things about me:
- i have very oily skin. always have
- i exclusively drink water
- i use benzaclin prescription antibiotic/BP topical on breakouts
- i take vitamin D, B12, B6, Folic acid, Calcium and Omega 3 daily
my skin is pretty good but but flares up with stress. I'm getting married in Sept and dont want any cysts- its my biggest fear so my Dr gave me a prescription for Doxy to take 6 weeks from wedding to ensure I'm clear.
I've never taken doxy and have read a few people on here said it made their skin WORSE. AHh. Now I dont know what to do...
