Doxycycline for a month?

Hello! Has anyone else used Doxycycline for a month and how effective was it? I have moderate to slightly severe inflammatory acne on my chin, all around my mouth and below my nose and I have also been using tretinoin, epiduo etc for a long period of time now. I recently got this breakout that just kept getting worse for months despite my topical treatments, and my GP prescribed me 100mg Doxycycline pills to be taken twice a day for a month, on top of my current topicals. How effective was it for you if you took a similar treatment? Pls help, thank you all!

I used doxycycline for around two weeks, however, I was allergic to it and ultimately stopped it). The allergy was pretty rare so you don’t have to worry. 

I am unsure of the dosage (mg), and the length was shorter but I feel as though It did help some of my active acne to reduce - but I mostly have scars (from  before, not the medicine) 

Just be careful with the topicals epiduo etc. and only put it on spots, not whole areas 

Hope this helps, and good luck! Hope everything works out for you :)
