after almost 3 weeks of regimen. has anyone else had this type of acne before. I've NEVER broken out before until about 2 months ago and my acne became unbearable. I'm in my mid 20's. Please HELP!

I've also been on Doryx for about 2 years (100mg) and am pretty sure it has stopped working.

      Hi there,

      Doryx will become acne resistant after about 5 repeats, flare ups start rapidly once resistant. This is why you are having no success with the doryx.

      Make sure you change between minomycin and doryx, few times a year.

      first go on a dose of Augmentin for 5 days to remove the big inflamations, then swap to minomycin or another acne prescribed drug.

      Continue with the regimen consistently with patience.

      I strongly recommend fresh carrot juice (3 carrots pushed through a juicer) daily.

      I had the exact same looking acne as yours and carrot juice daily made a huge improvement. Carrot juice lowers sebum production.

      Very first thing to do is go to the doctor to change antibiotic, first to the strong one for a week, then 5 repeats of minomycin.

      I hope this may be of a help.
