Oxytetracyline doing nothing :-(

Recommended Posts

Ive been on lots of diffrent things for my mild acne. Last year i was given tetralysal 300 and it worked wonders for about 10 months - clear skin - perfect!! But i noticed i was having a bit of a breakout so i went back to my doctor and she gave me oxytetracyline. So far i have been on it 5 weeks and it has done nothing!! They have just got worse!! I am useing tropical cream which is helping slighly, but oxytetracycline is not doing much at all - So im going back to the doctor next week for some thing else........ Any ideas or suggestions peeps

Tetralysal is a stronger antibiotic than Oxytet, so I'm not surprised. Neither did anything for me. As for suggestions:

Azelaic acid

Adapaline (differin)

Different antibiotic such as Erythromycin

As a last resort Roaccutane, if you have tried 2 different antibiotics you are most likely a candidate,

I assumed that you are a UKer from the brand of antibiotics you are taking.
