Hope this is in the right subforum...anyway, I have had chronic folliculitis for several years, and finally was prescribed doxycycline for 3 months to get rid of it.
I've been taking it for almost 4 weeks now, and I have broken out EXTREMELY bad on my chest, neck, and face. I am a 30 year old adult and haven't had any issues with acne at all. But once I started the antibiotic for my folliculitis, I have broken out so bad, and I have never had acne like this before.
I was googling a bit and found that it's normal to break out for a bit, but i'm almost 4 weeks in and I don't see any signs of this getting better. Is it time to call my doctor and find out if something is wrong, or is it still normal to be breaking out for this long? Does my diet matter? I go to the gym and have a high protein diet with a lot of carbs/milk/cheese/chicken, and am not sure if that has something to do with it either.
Anyway, when will this breakout go away? I'm getting annoyed with looking like this.
