Will Skin Ever Be The Same Post Treatment?

3 posts in this topic

Hi all

So I've been on antibiotics for 9 months now (7 months of doxy and 2 of tetracycline) and my skin is now a lot worse than it was before I bothered to start treatment! If I slowly came off the antibiotics would my skin go back to what it was before over time or have I permanently changed it do you think? I know it would probably be different with everyone, I just wondered if anyone had any experience with it.

I also started differin a month ago, which I know takes months to work, but at this point I'm wondering why I'm bothering when all I've done is make it worse than it was when I started!

I've had acne for exactly half my life now (12-24) so I don't even know what it's like to have flawless skin, it won't stop me doing things, but I have to work in an aseptic unit next month and we aren't allowed to wear make up eeeeeek!

Any tips are welcome! Thanks!

Correction I meant lymecycline not tetracycline haha!

It is a fair bit worse and in different places than before, it used to be mainly my cheeks but now the cheeks aren't so bad but forehead and chin is horrific! No I don't have 'leaky gut', I used to get sick on doxy if I took it without food but that's it. I really hope I haven't made it worse for good, I wish I had never bothered to start!
