antibiotics Acne Changes. Improvement? (Doxycycline)

1 post in this topic

Hey all,

About 10 weeks ago I went to the docter and he prescribed me Doxycycline 100mg/day for 4 weeks. After that he prescribed me Efracea (40mg doxycycline slow absorption) for 6 weeks because I could take these longer because of the lower dosage. I can see that my acne has changed in this 10 weeks, but I can't really say it's an improvement. I still have a lot of small closed comedones on my forehead and cheeks. I also noticed that I got a few very red spots under my eyes which have been there for almost a month now. They don't hurt or itch or anything, but they are very noticeable:(

I still do get bigger pimples with pus, however they are really weird now. They look more like some kind of vesicle filled with pus. It looks like they are more on the surface as well. I can't pop them, because there is no pus under the skin to come out. All the pus is on the surface or something? It feels really weird... Oh and before I forget: my skin is also pretty flaky now, especially after a shower.

Is this just a sign of improvement or what? I really don't know it anymore.

PS: I hope my english is understandable, I'm from Holland haha
