In the past 4-6 months I have been getting more inflamed acne than usual (I am 19). I had moderate acne during the ages 11-17 but after that I was almost completely clear when I was 17/18. I was curious as to why this is? My lifestyle has not changed nor have the products I use on my face. Is it usual for people to relapse after years of little to no acne? My doctor prescribed Doxycycline around 2 months ago but it doesn't seem to be helping. Also although I have fair skin I am getting fairly dark hyperpigmentation from the smallest of spots which I never used to get even on fairly large cystic acne.
Apologies for the ramble, if anyone could suggest why I am getting moderate acne again after around 2 years of (near) clear skin it would be very much appreciated. The products I am using are as follows: Quindoderm (BP 5 per cent), E45 moisturiser and Doxycycline for the past two months.
EDIT: I am male if that makes a difference (a friend said it could be hormonal).
