Can you try doxycycline or go back on erythromycin?

I'd rather avoid tetracyclin-based antibiotics because I had a severe reaction to oxytetracycline; I could go back on erythromycin, but after taking it for 2 years I doubt it'll be incredibly effective. When my doctor comes back from annual leave I'm going to ask about Trimothorprim or whatever it's called.

Stop using medication 4 acne.
Just make a 3 step acne solution like 1) Face oil-free wash 2) Treatment salicylic acid works well 3) moisturizer oil-free ( wont clog pores)

 

I've been doing that for nine years :D

I've heard from a lot of people that even the dirt-cheap ones on ebay are exact dupes for the £150 ones. I'm considering getting one with my next paycheck (super skint at the moment haha)

My aloe spray came in the mail today. Sprayed it all over my face and within seconds my face was red (to the point it was almost purple), tight and stinging. It went down after a couple hours. I took a prednisone pill (which I was just prescribed for poison ivy) shortly after the redness happened, so it may have been what saved me. Do you think I'm allergic to the stuff or could this be normal? I've never applied aloe before but I've used hand soaps and sanitizers with aloe in it with no reaction. Part of me thinks it was just attacking the bacteria in my face. It dried it right out and a lot of zits flaked off.

I use Aloe religiously and have never reacted like that to it; but once I offered it to my boyfriend and it made his face purply-red too and it eventually went all crusty like a chemical burn! So I'd be careful if you're sensitive to it
