I have been on doxycycline for 4.5 months now (been on all other medications but accutane before).

My skin is really fluctuating and one day I think my skin on my back and chest is getting slightly better and the next day it has lots of under the skin red painful bumps. I also have lots of blackheads on my chest and red bumps that just aren't going. Alongisde this I have very large open pores on my forehead and 'grainy' like skin on my chin with some red bumps, whiteheads, blackheads and under the skin spots.

I have tried so many topical treatments, I am eating and drinking healthier than ever, and I use acne specialised soaps, but nothing seems to be working at all.

I have recently been given vitamin d and folic acid and b12 suppliments by the doctors and I am worried this will make things even worse?

Does anybody know a way to get rid of REALLY stubborn blackheads? And the best topical treatment to get rid of bumps? I have a cream finacea that makes the bumps turn into scars after like a week but would really like to find something that prevents the spots in the first place.
