Some Advice please
Jul 24, 2005
I'm a 20 yr. old female. I've had mild to moderate acne since high school.

I went to the derm around age 16, took Minocycline and used worked great. Stopped taking the mino. after about a year and stayed clear for a long time. Then, last year, I started breaking out again. I don't think my BC pill (Ortho-tri-clyclin Lo ) helps ! I went to the derm again, have been on Doxycycline (75 ml. once a day) for about a year, along with tazorac and duac. They've all been working REALLY well almost immediately, BUT, now I'm starting to break out mildly again. I guess maybe I'm becoming immune to the doxy and topicals ?
My question is? If I go back to the derm, will he be able to give me new things that will help? Like will a different antibiotic help...or maybe an increased dosage? My acne isn't bad, just always a few there.
Thanks so much for any advice.
