In brief: 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.
