In brief: Allergic Reaction

Stop the Doxycycline and call your doctor. Many allergic reactions are mild, while others can be severe and life-threatening.
They can be confined to a small area of the body, or they may affect the entire body. The most severe form is called anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock. Allergic reactions occur more often in people who have a family history of allergies.
