Worth taking antibiotics ?

 does anyone here know anything about antibiotics for acne?

 i'm in my 30s now,  I occasionally have spots but generally redness is a problem. (i have quite sensitive skin).  

 I tried  antibiotics for acne on and off in my early 20s.  I admit I was quite impatient and never finished a whole course of pills.. eventually giving up with my doctor regarding acne. - i have used doxycycline.

 

should i go back to my GP and try again? 

should i request a  certain type antibiotic?

would 1 or 2 months  course of  medicine make a  permanent  difference to my skin?

 

any  comments welcome.

My experience with antibiotics: start antibiotic-clear skin for 6 months-stops working- break out again-try different antibiotic-clear skin for 6 months-stops working- break out again-try different antibiotic.....rinse and repeat. I found erythromycin to work best though.
