Seems like folliculitis. Are the spots pustular? And do they itch? No response to doxy might indicate a fungal infection.

Hi, No itchy skin for me or other problems like boils but I have been taking Doxycyline 2 for 2 Months and a few days, no improvement what's so ever, I'm only on 50mg Once a day and I have mild to moderate Acne, not many big pimples or zits but deep, red marks and red spots but I was actually prescribed this medication for my dermatitis that resulted from Acne topical's like BP and such, still it's also for my Acne. How much bloody longer must I wait!
