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 !!! :)
