I've been taking Doxycycline antibiotics for about a week. Up until 2 days ago my skin has been clearing up fine, but now it's really red, as if I'm sunburned. I've been sitting inside all day. Did anyone else get this side effect? Is there any way to reduce the redness?

I've been on Doxy for quite a long time and I do notice that my skin is more sensitive to the wind and sun. Although i've you been inside, maybe it's irritating your skin. I would say maybe take your dosage every other day and see if that lessens the sensitivity.

Does your skin hurt as well, or is it just redness? Cause if so, you might be developing a different skin condition, or just extreme irritation.

I got sunburned very easily while on Doxy. I wore sunscreen everyday no matter what and I still managed to turn a little pink. It doesn't help that I am fair skinned anyway, but I was told that being sensitive to the sun was normal.
