In Topic: Doxy=Scarring/marks?

05 April 2013 - 10:29 PM

I took doxy for about 3 or 4 months a few years ago - can't remember how many mg though. I don't remember it causing red marks or anything for me. But I already had a tendency for that to happen anyway. Are you using anything else / any topicals that might be causing or contributing to the developing of red marks?
 
When I stopped taking doxy I was still clear for about a month after that but then acne started coming back - it wasn't actually any worse than before I started doxy but it felt like it was worse at first because I'd been able to enjoy relatively clear skin for a while because of doxy. 
So yeah you're acne might return, unfortunately, but hopefully you'll be able to have some time of clear skin before that happens. It was around a month for me but I've heard of people whose clear skin from antibiotics lasted a lot longer than that after they stopped them


Epiduo is my Topical, I apply that at night only. Then I use cetaphil moisturizer & gentle cleanser.


Ivw been using epiduo for awhile now before I even started doxy & never had red marks


And i hope that doesn't happen..

Twice a day would not work for me... my face is extremely greasy after applying moisturizer, even 24 hours afterward, with a face-splash in between. I'm thinking once every two or three days.

Do you use bp? My skin use to be oily like I could get out the shower dry my face, get dressed, go play basketball for literally 2 minutes & my face would look like I was running all day. Now my face is fine in that aspect.


Your face could be oily because your dry skin is so severe that your body is producing so much oil to counterattack the dryness, trust me its possible.

I guarantee you if you cleanse & moisturize twice a day your skin wont be oily. The moisturizer will moisturize your face so your body won't need to produce so much.

Yeah it will take sometime but its worth it, besides moisturizing makes your skin look healthier anyway, everyone knows that.

Its your skin so do what you want but like I said I use to have really oily skin now its the complete opposite.
Using lotion will not trick your skin into producing less oil. Androgens are the hormones largely responsible for oil production. Nothing topical can alter these hormones into producing less oil.

I wish it worked that way but, it doesn't.
Don't tell me it doesn't work when it worked for me, I use to have oily skin to the point where people would ask me why my face was so shiny lolol anyway now I don't.. I use to wake up with a shiny face... now I don't

It can and does work, will work for every single person on this planet with oily skin? No I'm not saying that, but its DEFINITELY worth a try.
I agree it is tottaly worth a try. I moisturize twice a day and it doesn't make my skin less oily. I'm glad it worked for you!

I've used a bunch of different lotions ad potions for my oily skin and they never helped me except for this particular eucerine SPF 30 sensitive skin moisturizer I use to buy all the time. It was discontinued last year! Why does that always happen? When something works the company stops making it.

Acne and oily skin is more complex than most people think.

If you have any old bottles you could get the ingredients list & compare with other moisturizers, then find a match, would take a while but worth it.

And yeah it is But overly dry skin can lead to more oil production, I think if you try a bp that will take a lot of oil away also.
