My derm has put me on Acnaya, and I go back to see her in a few more work to discuss my progress with it.

My skin has really approved with the acanya, but I'm still getting spots ): I really don't want to stop using the Acnaya because it does help prevent new spots and it heals spots really fast! I may see even better results in the next few weeks, but I think I'm going to talk to my doctor about putting me on a 2nd medication to work with the Acanaya gel.

Does anybody have any suggestions? I'm still considering Doxycycline.

OMG I am so glad you asked. I use benzaclin which was the drug that came before Acanya. Mine is a combination of 1% clindamycin and 5% strength benzoyl peroxide. As far as antibiotics go, they help immensely. Acne after all is a bacterial infection in the skins pore. I don't recommend doxycycline however. I took it for a year and my skin actually got worse. The antibiotic did nothing. That said, there are two antibiotics that work really well : Amoxicillin and Cephalexin, both 500mg pills taken 2-3 times daily. I have before and after pictures in my blog. I had cystic acne and now I have smooth clear skin. One pimple every three months..Good luck
