Hi I wanted to know what’s the shortest time I could take doxycycline for my acne treatment. My acnes are mainly in my chin and both cheeks area. Theyre all very red and big.

Greetings! Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. For your information, when including an antibiotic in your acne treatment plan, your dermatologist will prescribe it for the shortest time possible. This is because acne takes time to treat, this usually means 3 to 4 months. However, some patient who have acne need more time on an antibiotic.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor for full examination. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties.The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions . Thank you.
