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.

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!
