Doxy: Some adolecents take low dose doxycycline for months without problems. Sensitivity to Sun exposure and nausea are occasional side effects which clear on discontinuing the medication. In my experience doxy cycline is very well tolerated.

How long after taking doxycycline do I have to stay out of the sun?

How long after taking doxycycline do I have to stay out of the sun?

Doxycycline sun rash: Doxycycline absorbs UV-A, so if you're outdoors when the med is in your system, you could wind up with a photosensitive rash. That rash can be nasty -so it's good to be careful. The half-life of the drug is about 20 hrs, and it binds to proteins in the body. Thus, after about 5 half-lives since you last took the drug, 'all of it' should be out of your system. That's 4-5 days as the other docs said
