i dont think any other antibiotic will work for you if you cant try bactrim then i would go for keflex. i know its like a stronger one but at this point i dont think anything else will work. if you do take it and get clear then that is the time to find something that will permanently help clear your acne. are you female? if so why not try spiro. also what is your regimen like? you need to have a good regimen so that once you get off the antibiotics you dont start breaking out again.
I'm trying to wean myself off minocycline.. I thought I had become resistant to it since sugar was breaking me out again. But now that I'm weaning off it, I'm breaking out frequently over the past 2 weeks. Don't get it.. I was getting like 3-4 pustules around my mouth 6months into mino and now I get 5-6 pustules/whiteheads 10months in. I try to follow a low GI diet. No spicy food or sugar as that breaks Me out. I think this is the main reason my acne is under control because when I became resistant to doxy last year I had no idea about diet and stuff and my mouth was full of whiteheads like 20 inflamed ones. I suspect I have some type of perioral/sebb dermatitis combined with follicuitus. Diet helps a bunch though.
I'm a male so Spiro is not n option. My forehead and cheeks are clear its just my damn mouth and crease of nose. I've been on 100mg mino for 10 months now. Was clear for first 6 months. Didn't up my dosage since I wanted to try an alternative cure.
But I'm slowly starting to lose hope with that and am scared that I'll get one of those massive breakouts when I'm completely off mino.
I want to try bactrim but I don't know how I'll react to it.
How long did it taken for u to get resistant to mino? Did u ever get resistant to keflex? Sorry if my questions are stupid lol. Thanks a lot for your replies they keep me sane
