I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. First of all, Doryx (doxycycline) will make you nauseas if you don't take it with food. so take it with food! Second of all, the dots on your face are not a reaction. It's called Petechiae. It's broken blood vessels caused by violent vomiting. You were not getting enough oxygen to that part of your face while you were throwing up, and it caused the dots to form (this has happened to me before and the nurse told me that's what it was. I guess you can also get it from crying heavily). So don't worry- the dots will gradually fade away over 3-4 days. Hope this helps ease your mind!!! Just make sure you eat with your doxy!!! Also, switching over to Minocycline might help-- I switched and now I can take it on an empty stomach with no nausea whatsoever. Good luck!
