Doxy stopped working after 9 months - will another antibiotic work now? or accutane only option

Recommended Posts

hi all,

basically, severe cycstic acne on chin out of nowhere, hormonal i presume. went on doxy and worked amazing, literally gone within a couple of days and worked perfectly for about 7 months. now, i am getting little spots here and there, again only on chin, and the other day had my first cystic lump appear. (please search for my one and only other previous post as that does into a lot more detail about my break out)

i know antibiotics are not a long term solution, but as i have had clear skin my entire life until this break out last year, i thought this could work for me. so, can i try taking another antibiotic, or do i have no option but to go with accuntane? i will add pictures later of the difference, cannot believe how well doxy worked for me. but sadly i fear i am building a resistance to it.

thanks in advance!
