Yes, doxy helps. Doxycycline and Minocycline are antibiotics often used to treat acne in teen boys. They are not used as often in girls, because these antibiotics are not used during pregnancy, and teen girls may unexpectedly become pregnant. Antibiotic gels and creams are also used, and may contain Clindamycin or erthromycin antibiotic.
Usually. Especially if you combine it with good topicals, like benzoyl peroxide or retin-a.
I have worsening cystic acne on chin. Itchy and dry. Afew have been around for weeks. On monodox (doxycycline monohydrate). I have get 3-5 pimples on cheeks once a month. Help.?
Cystic Acne. Isotretinoin is commonly prescribed for cystic acne available under brand names such as absorica, amnesteem, claravis and sotret. This medication reduces the size of oil glands so that less oil is produced and bacterial growth is inhibited. This is the most effective acne medication.
Treatable. Hi, Oral antibiotics for acne are hit or miss. Please try to prevent any emotional trauma if these pills don't bring you all the way to total satisfaction. I made a video that may help prevent the emotional impact of this common approach: https://www. Youtube. Com/watch? V=vYW3I6giJEg hope it helps, have a great day, -Dr. Neal Schwartz.
I have teenage acne. Not severe but I do have blackheads&whiteheads. On my head, face, chest, cleavage, back, arms. I take vibramycin (doxycycline). Is it good for this?
You need. You need a retinoid like differin, retin-a, tazorac (tazarotene).
I have had same cluster of bumps (pimples) on my chin/corner of mouth for 10months. I'm on doxycycline and use benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide)...What can it be besides acne?
Perioral Acne. The treatment you are using seems appropriate. Call your dermatologist for tweeking, if need be.
