Photosensitivity: Doxycycline is one of those medications that make you very prone to skin reactions to sun exposure (photosensitivity). Even a little sun exposure can set it off, and it doesn't need to even be the part of the skin that was exposed, although it is more common to these areas.

Hyperemic Response: In many individuals cold exposure to the hands causes the vessels to dilate and a hyperemic response occurs. The result is usually very warm, very red skin changes. It can be the body’s response to cold where the tissues can become ischemic with build-up of toxins due to the decreased circulation. This response helps wash toxins away and the tissue to recover. ...Read more
