Ok so Im on round 2 of Oxytetracyclin 500mg twice daily. I first started it around May 2010 - and after a month or so it was great. I literally had clear skin from July to September/October time - not one spot!!

Then the breakouts came back around 'that time of the month'...and by Xmas all hell had broken loose. I don't have what you would call typical acne, but I get individual big red spots and white heads which bleed - and they seem to takes ages to heal.

I decided to stop using the oxytetracycline over theXmas holidays to give my body a break. It was awful...bad bad times. I managed 3 weeks without them before I had to return to work - I certainly didnt want my work colleagues to see me in that state.

Well it's 5 weeks in, and they are still not helping - I have at least 10 spots on my chin which are quite painful, and a huge cyst on my jaw. Im not happy!!

I have a feeling they are not going to work anymore for me!???
