In Topic: Doxycycline Hyclate Questions, Any Input Would Be Awesome

05 May 2013 - 04:06 AM

I have been on doxycycline (50mg/day) since the 6th of March, and only in the past 2 weeks have I had flawless skin. This is in conjuction with the regimen and vitamins.. plus a healthy diet and exercise. My doctor started me off with 100mg for the first 2 weeks, and when I dulled the dosage to 50mg I broke out something fierce. I have another month and a half to go, and in the next few weeks I am dulling my dosage down to 25mg daily. Doxy is worth it, but it wouldn't be my number one preference as it's just a "quick fix". If you were to use doxy, having a topical regimen like the one here on acne.org or retin-a would give you better results. Expect a long wait though as it will be a long while before you see results.

I spoke too soon, got 4 pimples this morning and 2 are those deep pimples that no matter how many times you pop it it comes back eusa_wall.gif

 

That's annoying sad.png

If you can though, try and not pop them. I used to have these deep pimples that repeatedly came up in the same spot on my cheek. And I swear that's why they always came back in the same spot - because I would mess with them instead of letting them heal on there own. When I left them alone and let them go through their 'life cycle' (?) they healed completely and I haven't had acne pop up in that exact spot since then. 


Actually I find that the big whiteheads I get I pop and put AHA on it straight away, and it goes away. Speaking of that, that little breakout I had is now gone! 2 days! rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif I am speechless, my skin is so good atm..

In Topic: Will I Break Out If I Stop Taking Doxycycline?

Thanks for your answers.

Cassie, good luck with the doxy and the initial breakout. In my case, doxycycline has completely cleared my skin, not a single zit at the moment, so i hope it works so good with you too.

Lilly, your answer made me really happy. I was scared that acne would come back abruptly, that i would wake up tomorrow with lots of pimples you know, so your response did put my mind at ease. After having moderate acne for the last 5 months or so, having a clear face for one month would be great.

Today i started with topical erythromycin, so i hope it helps to keep my skin clear for a lil bit more time.

i'll post my results, good luck everybody


Thanks for wishing me well. Since I replied my skin has gone completely clear!! I havent had a pimple in almost 5 days! I have been on doxy 2 months next Tuesday. I am soooo happy cheer.gifcheer.gif
