So I’ve been on doxycycline for just over 6 weeks now and whilst progress has been slow so far I was starting to notice an improvement in my skin. However suddenly in the past 3-4 days or so I’ve broken out quite badly across my cheeks with a couple of big pimples. 

Ive heard about the ‘purging’ phase when you take antibiotics as some people say it gets worse before it gets better, but I always assumed this would happen in the first week or so? Is it possible to have a purging phase 6 weeks into taking antibiotics? Should I be worried?
