After the three months of being on doxycycline is up, then what? Is the key to make the acne never return again or is this just a temporary thing? Although my skin isn't as bad as I believe it to be I'm a bit of a stickler on having perfect skin and feeling comfortable without wearing makeup. I also am a huge health freak and am a little uncomfortable about the side effects. If this isn't permanent I don't understand the point in suffering with side effects just to see results only while on it. Please give me all the information you know !!! :)
I just got prescribed doxycycline today and am curious to know more about it?

Please let me rephrase this. I understand they're are many people that suffer from terrible acne and I don't want to act as if I'm on it for one or two pimples. My doctor has prescribed me with this because it is bad enough to be on it. I have been breaking out since grade 10 but never to serious. These last couple of months my acne has not gone away... Normally, they will disappear within a week . All is good until another week has gone by and I have pimples again. Its just frustrating !! I want clear skin all the time :( not just for a couple days
