I was prescribed this for folliculitis and a week into taking it, it flaired up massively. I understand people with acne have took this and the acne got worse before it got better.. did that also include body acne or folliculitis? I have several red spots, some with puss. Would this be an allergic reaction to it? I used to get 5-10 at a time but now I get so many more. I stopped taking doxy 11 days into the course as I felt this was the case but got talked into taking it as he said it was just clearing out my system. Been on it for 6 days again now.
You should have called the Doctor before stopping it, take the full bottle, call him if you have any new problems, good luck.
