Well most people who had success and have had their acne cleared from antibiotics dont stick around here anymore to share their success. But for what its worth I have heard that there are people who have taken antibiotics and after their course they never had acne problems ever again. It depends whether ur lucky or not.

I've been on doxycycline 100mg/day for smack bang on 2 months and i've had good, not great results up until a week ago...and now over the xmas break where i've eaten so much junk and drank lots (and done barely any exercise...whereas i'm usually a fitness freak in semester time), my skin is crystal clear! Hoping it stays like this :) I'm gonna stay on 100mg/day for another couple of months and see what happens after that...

good luck

anti biotics do work, for some, however the effect only lasts whilst you are on the medication, and whilst your body has not built up immunity.

My acne was drastically improved by anti biotics, however I decided to cease taking them as it was not a long term solution.
