Just wanted to send a quick update to anyone still interested in my journey I've been on spiro almost 3 months and oracea (low dose doxy) for almost 2 months:
1st month @ 50 mg per day
2nd and 3rd month @ 100 mg (50 mg twice per day)
I dare say I am seeing some improvement. I am still breaking out, sometimes in deep acne but it seems less pronounced and seems to resolve a bit quicker. I am hoping that in a few more months I will start to have clearer days.
One issue i am having is the dryness - Oh Lord! It makes my skin look red and parched. My eczema is also flaring. It's getting colder here in NY too. I ordered an Avene heavy duty moisturizer so i may mix that in with my regular moisturizer to help the dry spots.
Hoping things continue to improve.
