thanks Mrs Robinson, I hope you are right! Since I'm also dealing with perioral dermatitis, I've been using 100% natural face products from Osmia. In the past, when I took antibiotics just for acne, I was always fine when I stopped b/c they were in conjunction with Tazorac or something of that sort.
This time, I went from using a doc-rx'd cortisone cream for years (eek) that hid the PD AND acne, to antibiotics for the PD. The antibiotic did nothing for the PD, but I am now realizing it kept my acne at bay... I almost forgot I had it.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that the black soap, etc. I'm using will keep the acne contained as I wean off the antibiotic. What a mess!
Heyy I had the same question for you! I have perioroal dermatitis been on antibiotics for a very long time (20 months) but I think Minocycline has stopped working for me.
I am still petrified to let go off it because I am thinking that they may still be helping me! But I am breaking out anyways, just not as bad, so thats why I havent quit.
I have been thinking of weaning off them but I don't know if I will breakout like crazy like I used too.
Did weaning off work for you?? Please please let me know. Thanks!!
