Change medications: The drug you are on is a form of a tetracyclene. Ask your doctor about using either Doxycycline or Minocycline to see if that works better.

I get itchy, pus filled, red-toned eruptions on my face, which then settle as these black spots. How can I stop it? And how to remove black spots?
Facial Eruption: Once a pore becomes clogged, it traps skin oil inside. Bacteria grows in this oil and can cause an inflammatory response in the skin. Acne lesions can be small and hardly noticeable, have a small white or black head, or can appear red with a white/yellow center. Sometimes a clogged pore will become so inflamed that it can lead to larger, more painful lesions called nodules or cysts. See your derm. ...Read more

Doubt herpes. Yeast?: This description doesn't sound at all like herpes.

You both should see a doctor or clinic to check it out, preferably together. ...Read more
