mrsa overkill?

Is it a bad idea to take doxycycline for acne if you've had MRSA and used doxy? Went on doxy for MRSA but now being kept on it for another month+ for acne ... I am all for killing all the staph, but is this extra course going to do more harm than good?

edit: mrsa was on leg, and acne is not cystic, just a few pimples scattered about (not mild, but far from severe)
