Missed 2 doses (diff days) of doxycycline for MRSA on bum. Infection is not getting worse. Still taking rest of meds properly. Should I be rechecked?

In brief: Finish...

Finish the whole antibiotic course even though you missed doses.
Follow up as you were recommended. If you notice the infection is not better then you will need alternative treatment so you would definitely need to be seen for evaluation.
