My dermatologist prescribed me it. Went on it for about 2 weeks and it got worse. I stopped taking it for 3 days until my pharmacist talked me into taking it and said 'it gets worse before it gets better' and I didn't give it enough time. Is this true? I had a mild case to begin with and he said it was mild when he saw it but it flaired up massively.
Can doxycycline be used to treat folliculitis? so far it's made it flair up?

Well yes , with antibiotics the tendency is that it will get worse before one can see/feel an improvement, but if we are talking of a massive reaction , something is not right, I would discontinue use and talk to my Dr. asap.
