success with antibiotics

Recommended Posts

i've just been reading forums on people being on doxycycline and it seems as tho noone had had long term success. This is scaring me. I'm have mild acne on the foehead (but not that mild, enough to notice i have acne) which mainly consists of whiteheads. I've been on doxycycline for nearly 2 months plus differin WHICH IS Helping me clear up.

BUT THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO EB ANY SUCCESS WITH ANTIBIOTICS IN THE LONG RUN. IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WHO HAS HAD SUCCESS??

cos it kind of puts me off to feel like my acne 's goignt o come back anyway.

People who have had long term success with antibiotics and their acne probly dont spend much time on acne related websites and thats why you dont see any really positive feedback.

If it works why not use it, even if it is short term. It might see you through to the stage where your body grows out of it.

With acne, here is the rule : while it works, keep it. As soon as it doesn't fit no more, try something else. It will make you gain time until your natural recovery. With acne, no holds barred.

I must say, by virtue of the resilient nature of bacteria, antibiotics never work in the long run. You will get used to them. I have been on most cyclines, {tetre, mino, doxy} but never longer than a few month cycle, as they always "pooped out".
