Hi everyone.

I suffered some mild acne for a bit and cleared it up from being on doxycycline for about 9 months. I eased off of the antibiotic and was doing pretty good. A year and a half later, I now have worse acne (Not even specifically in the same area, but the same type). I feel that I have tried everything! I eat a very clean inflammatory whole foods vegan diet. I'm currently taking Zinc but it isn't making that much of a difference. 

My doctor is prescribing me doxycycline again but I really want to stay off of it... I'll only go on it if there's a way to keep the acne away long term. Can taking probiotics with it help? I feel that my gut and digestion are all out of whack. Not sure if I should just take the antibiotic now as a quick fix then figure everything out with my digestion or just keep trying the natural route. 

Any help is greatly appreciated!! So desperate for some other opinions / guidance! Thank you!
