I've now been on Adoxa (doxycycline) for exactly three weeks. Last week I thought it was going very well-- few new pimples, less redness, etc. But since yesterday I've been experiencing a breakout. It's not any worse than what I was having before going on Adoxa. At least 5 or 6 new pimples popped up, seemingly overnight. One weird thing about a lot of my pimples, lately, is that they don't really come to a head. They are just red, sore bumps that go away after a few days to a week.

Anyway, I have heard that you have to wait a good 2 to 3 months for antibiotics to clear you up. Has this been everyone's experience? Does this mean I'll have to suffer through breakouts for another month or two? Ugh... it's wearing me out.
