Antibioticresistence/erymax and BP

Recommended Posts

I got erymax from my derm today, I've been on tetracyklin for 2 months without any improvement (actually I've gotten worse in these 2 months). Can Erytromycin (erymax) really help even though I didn't get any help from the tetracyklin?? Can you just be resistant to one antibiotic?

I just want something to help me quickly because I scar so easily and my red marks doesn't fade until a year or so.

I'm thinking of starting with Yasmin (BP), but I heard it takes 3-4 months for it to work on your skin. So therefor I thought I'd take erymax now before the Yasmin will work, does anyone know if you can take Birth Control pills together with antibiotics?

You need to wait about 3 months to notice a change when using tetracycline. It does work though, just give it time.

I don't think so...?

2 Months? It definitely should have done something by now. When I

started taking Doxycycline, it took only 3-4 weeks to control my cystic

acne. That was 10 years ago, I stopped taking it this past Spring.

Thankfully, it hasn't returned biggrin.gif
