Doxy + Yasmin causing increased Oily skin + hair?

Recommended Posts

Hi :)

I have mild to moderate acne that decided to rear its ugly head again after Dianette stopped working as well as it did.

So back in Oct i started Yasmin (so i am unsure as to how this will help my acne yet), however i recently started Doxycycline (generic version) in Dec, and about a week after i started this i noticed that my skin had become more oilier than usual and the worst thing being very oily hair almost like there is a waxy buildup that is very hard to get rid of . I have always had oily skin and hair - (comes with the acne territory sometimes i know!) lol but this is very different.

I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced this or could it be that the antibiotic is interfering with the yasmin? I'm getting spotting also. I know that antibiotics can interfere with birth control but can it interfere with the antiandrogenic activity of yasmin?

Will this calm down over time?

I was on dianette and minocin years ago and never had this problem :confused:
