Hi! I'm Maddie and today is day #1 of my antibiotic and tretinoin cream regimen. I currently have some pretty much healed papules on my upper back/shoulder region, many tiny whiteheads on my jawline, many blackheads on my chin and nose, healing papules on my right cheek and some unnoticable but annoying whiteheads on both cheeks, and scattered pimples on my forehead.

I'm really hoping this works out because im sick of makeup! And photoshopping my skin!!
Anyways, thanks for reading and I'll post back tomorrow:)
Best luck to all!

So today i dont notice much difference in my skin though it is a tad more dry then gets oily throughout the day as usual. It still is a bit rough. The worst part was not having time to eat this morning with my pill and i felt sick as a dog! Very lightheaded and nauseous.

Daily Regimen:

Morning-
1)Doxycycline Pill with full glass of water and food
2)Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Wash
3) Netrogena Healthy Defense Mosturizer

Night-
1)Doxycycline Pill with full glass of water
2)Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Wash
3)Retin-A(Tretinoin cream)
4)CeraVe PM lotion

Also my cream is 0.05% and my doxycycline is 100 mg just so you know!! I encourage feedback from anyone trying or further along using these please! I'd like to see results!

Hey :) I just wanted to comment to let you know people are reading and are excited for you!

I'm taking minocycline and tretinoin 0.05 cream as well.

I've been on the cream for maybe 3 weeks and I am DEFINITELY in the initial breakout phase. I've been on antibiotics for years (I know, I know. It is terrible for me. But that's what my doctor ordered.) I think I've grown a resistance to my antibiotics, so I doubt they are helping my breakout in any way :(

I go back to college in 2 days, and it's unfortunate that I have to start of school looking like a teenager when I'm already 23! Anyways, it's a long road to clear skin but I'm willing to stick this out! Good luck to you and keep on writing!!

Hi MaddieJuliet,

I started my Doxycycline treatment on July 3, 2012. I am also on the 100mg day and night rituaI. In the beginning I was always feeling sick but I got over it. There are many junk things about antibiotics but I really sincerely do hope that this works for you. Let me tell you a bit about what I've experienced so far in hope of giving you some kind of inspiration. Its been a little over 2 months and during that time I have had some break outs. 1 cyst on both sides of my jawline, some small pimples here and there. DO I think that this antibiotics is working, YES! I do get the small pimples and they only last a day or two before I can extract the clogged pore without TOO much irritation. Some just dry right up and don't get a chance to turn into a pimple. What's cool is that I know it's working but its working VERY slowly. In the beginning, I obsessed with searching for success stories but everyone is different and readying someones negative review might not be credible because you have no control over their environmental variables. My suggestion is to stick with it. Stick with your regime and do it EVERYDAY. But do other things like eat healthy, exercise more, get a good nights sleep, change your bed sheets, exfoliate, you know the FUN stuff :P Acne sucks and unfortunately it has plagued us.
