  1. okay guys, so this is what happened. My acne resurfaced! :'( I'm horrified. I've been 4 months of doxycycline but instead of my condition getting better, it got significantly worse with tons and tons of close comedones on both sides of my face (it gets terribly bad at the jaw area). My t zone and chin are clear though.
  2. Hi all, i'm so sorry for my late repy! Yes doxy caused quite bad tooth discoloration for me but after i stopped taking it, the tooth discoloration naturally went away so you need not worry about that. (my doctor told me that it would go away too and it eventually did.) I definitely had to take doxy with food. I remember taking it once on an empty stomach and i felt like throwing up. I always take doxy after my meals.
  3. i've been taking flax seed oil and it's working great for me! If i dont take it, my skin would react really badly. Flax seed oil makes my skin extremely smooth and soft!
  4. and why is this?I guess like any antibiotic, you have to finish the whole course of it to prevent the bacteria from resurfacing/becoming more resistant. Updates on my skin, or rather a rant... My skin had been good so far with no acne and almost no scars. I have a couple of bumps under my chin and one really painful pustule on my chin. However, i was in absolutely horror when i woke up yesterday- my whole face was red!!! My skin became so sensitive to touch and wash. Even after washing with my

    Drastically improves acne improves bowel movements improves overall health can be tasty takes abit of commitment can be costly over time (since organic vegetables are usually more expensive) Does not 100% fully eliminate acne can be nasty in taste Been there, done that and still practising it. Suffered from severe acne. By that i mean MORE THAN 30 pimples (big and small) all over the face with acne on my back too. Stopped ALL topicals and facials during
  6. I don't think taking 3 pills a day would do much to make the cyst go away quicker. I tried taking 2 pills a day when i had more pimples but it didn't do much. What works is applying your topical creams on the cyst itself. Dalacin works really well. Does your doctor know that you started taking doxy again? because you need to finish your course of antibiotics (4 months at least) before you can stop taking it.
  7. wait, what? you got the flakiness AFTER you stopped using doxycycline? That means doxy caused it... Did you ever have it prior to taking doxy? The severity of my flakiness is something like that in the picture here. http://www.google.com.sg/imgres?q=flakines...1t:429,r:2,s:16. I have a habit to pull all the skin off with a tweezer so i'm not sure if that caused the scarring and redness. :/ Yes i did get the flakiness after i stopped using doxycycline. I stopped taking doxycycline in a
  8. hey timehealsall, nope, the doxy definitely did not cause me the flakiness so i only got it after i stopped taking doxy. Did you change any part of your daily routine? For me i realised it could possibly be due to my change in facial cleanser which was way too drying for my skin. I don't apply differin on the areas that flake so all's good now. The scarring is pretty bad but it gets lighter progressively. It was really red at first then it left a brown patch which is about 1 shade darker than m
  9. did the doxycycline cuase the flakiness for you?

    Its weird because i might be in a similar situation as you!

    How exactly is this flakiness causing you scarring??

  10. I really need to get rid of my rolling scars.. ): Really want to go for co2 laser but when i googled there were a lot of negative reviews on it. I shall ask my derm the next time i see him (in dec) on how i can improve the appearance of my uneven skin. For my flaky skin around my mouth, my doctor prescribed a steroid cream (hydrocortisone) but i can't really use a lot of it as steroids are known to cause pimples.. I have scarring due to the flaky skin as well. Sigh, i'm so upset about this. My
  11. I'm updating this space when my exams are tomorrow! Just a quick post though. I read through my whole antibiotic log and wow! Three years have flown by. I still have acne and have not grown out of it (my parents had bad acne too but they grew out of it) i think my skin condition has somewhat changed. I used to have very oily skin.. Ut now im having combination skin. The areas around my mouth and nose can sometimes get really really dry that they flake really badly! And it's so embarassing cos i
  12. I don't have anymore teeth staining after visiting the dentist and using a teeth whitening toothpaste. Lately, i've completely stopped taking doxycycline (after 4th month). My derm advised me to stop taking doxy about two weeks ago. Last week i had a small outbreak. It isn't anything too serious. Just a couple more spots on my cheek. However, two days back i realised that i had significantly more bumps around my jaw area and my skin was horribly dry around my jawline and nose area! Why does t
  13. The staining of my teeth has not improved. Such a worry! however, my skin has never been this good in my entire life! I dont have much acne scarring at all and many times i can go out makeup free!! I think my skin condition is really good but i guess there still can be improvements. Hopefully by end feb, i'll achieve baby smooth skin! 4th month into doxy. 2 more months to go!
