How long does it take for doxy to clear you?

I've been on 100mg a day for 6 weeks now and it seems to be reducing the number of my breakouts and my zits seem to be empty? What I mean by empty is that there is little to no white crap in them, they are just small red bumps. Quite a difference from before when I used to pop them and a small river would emerge (I dont pop them anymore) sad.gif But yeah so far the acne seems to be responding to it a bit. Just wondering how long before it clears you.

to see full results u will have to wait probably up to about 2-3 months. That said from what u describe it is already working.

Sadly, it is unlikely that antibiotics will get you 100% clear. I have found that they lessen breakouts and reduce the severity of the acne that u do get, like you have described. It will all really depend on how bad your acne is and how it reacts to the doxy...

The good thing about antibiotics is you can easily combine them with other treatments, like dans regimen to further improve your skin.

Good Luck!

Yeah I'm in the same boat as you. Been on doxy going on 8 weeks and I still get zits occasionally but they are smaller than they used to be and they clear up faster so it's not such a big deal. My main concern is all the freakin red marks that are still there from the acne I had before I started the doxy.

I use clenia face wash (contains sodium sulfacemide), benzaclin to spot treat any active spots, and apple cider vinegar to spot treat the red marks. It's a pretty involved regimen but it seems to be working.
