I'm a 15 year old girl who has had acne for as long as I can remember. I properly began to get severe acne when I was 11 or 12. My doctor prescribed me 100 mg capsules of doxycycline to be taken everyday after trying other creams and drugs with no success. Its been 4 months and there is little to no improvement as I still get horrible acne even after the pimple fade they reappear almost overnight. On some days my acne isn't as bad but all the other days there is no improvement. Do you think I should be prescribed something different or carry on. I really need this advice as acne can make your self-esteem and confidence drop really low to the point you barely want to go outside and ive been living like this for a long time. If there is any advice you could give me it would be greatly appreciated.
