Can bacteria resistance become a problem from stopping Doxycycline Hyclate after only 6 of 20 doses due to a mild/moderate allergic reaction?
It can: Incomplete antibiotic courses are known to cause resistance of bacteria to the antibiotic. Doxycycline is a bacteriostatic antibiotic, meaning that it typically suppresses bacteria more so than killing them would probably be more prone to that than other antibiotics. Also, it depends on the bacterial propensity to develop resistance as some do so more than others. ...Read more

Both big and I on doxycycline for chlaymdia. We had u protected sex day 2 for me and day 1 for him. Did we reinfect and should we stop the 7 day dosage?
Complete treatment: Although it is recommended that persons with chlamydia not have sex for a week after treatment, usually there is no harm if both members of a couple have been treated and they have sex only with each other. I would advise no sex or at least use condoms for now. For sure continue your doxycycline as prescribed. No sex with anyone else, and both get retested after 3-4 weeks. Good luck! ...Read more
I am takin doxycycline hyclate, but I am goin for an abortion, is it safe to still be takin it or I should stop takin it?
Typically...: It takes 3-5 days. It is important though to keep taking the medication until it all gone, even after you have started to feel better. If you don't improve, you should go back the doctor, because you may have a resistant case. Remember, your sexual partners will need to be treated as well. ...Read more
I'm on doxycycline to treat my acne for 3 months but I took it only 2 months and stop about a month. How could I consume it again?
Not sure what you: Meant by "consume" or did you mean "resume"? You should treat it for 3 months regardless. Acne can be a chronic condition and if you had to use doxycycline I'm assuming you have already tried other methods to little effect. Finish the course and hopefully you won't have to do anything for a while. But acne do tend to come back. ...Read more
I've just finished my 7 day treatment with Doxycycline Hyclate, how long does it take for the abnormal discharge to stop coming out?
Varies.: Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, it would be decreasing by about the end of the seven day treatment. If indeed the tetracycline worked on what was causing it. It is mostly effective on chlamydia, but less so on gonorrhea and not very effective on yeast infection nor non-specific vaginitis. ...Read more

Check with your doctor. Syphilis test could be negative early on in the illness. Gonorrhea tests can also be negative even when you have the disease.

Balanitis: Go see Family Doc to determine specific cause of your case of balanitis (http://www. Drugs. Com/health-guide/balanitis. Html) as there are many such that empiric treatment i.e. guessing won't help. Canestan S is a combination of anti fungal & steroid (http://www. Drugs. Com/international/canesten-s.html). Doxycycline is an antibiotic. Fluconazole is another anti fungal. So no more guessing. Identify bu ...Read more

After I stop doxycycline, will my acne come back? If yes, what's the point of taking doxycycline in the first place?
Keeps under control: Apart from acute infections, surgical problems, and the handful of cancers that can be cured with chemotherapy or radiation, medicine is all about controlling and managing disease rather than curing it. Surely you would not refuse to take a painkiller for a broken bone because the bone will still be broken tomorrow, or deny the value of Insulin that keeps a diabetic alive today. ...Read more
