    Question Brevoxyl Creamy Wash & Doxycycline Combo

    Recently my skin has been awful. Okay, awful doesn't even describe it. It's gross. Anyway, I went to my doc and she noticed as soon as she walked into the examining room that my face had erupted and she looked like she was about to fall over. That's how bad it is. I've never had breakouts and the worse thing is that I can't get rid of them.

    Her first concern was that maybe my birth control was causing it but since it's never done this before she wanted to try putting me on Doxycyline once a day and washing with Brevoxyl 4 Creamy Wash to use twice a day. We're hoping that this will clear me up. If not, she's going to try changing my birth control also.

    So, my question is, has anyone used these in combination and what were your results? How long did it take to see your results? What's the best way to use this cleanser? Once or twice a day?

    Thanks for all the replies you can give. It will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, I had really bad face and body acne.
    Your body is probably producing alot of oil and this is whats causing the acne.
    The best product for acne is Doxycycline.
    Doxycycline will control the oil your body is producing and bring down the body acne and stop it from growing.
    There's 2 version of doxycycline. One version costs 25 dollars and another version which is called Dorf, costs 162 dollars.
    The one thats 162 dollars is the pure form version.
    My pharmacist said there basically the same thing.
    I get the one that's 25 dollars.
    If you have health insurance, it will cost even less.

    There is no shelf product you can buy that will stop the acne from growing.
    Only an anti biotic will stop it.
    The Doxycycline is 30 pills. Get the version thats 100 mg.
    Take one pill a day.

    Since I'v been taking Doxycycline my acne went totally down.
    This is an awesome product.
    I'v not tried that cleanser.

    Re: Brevoxyl Creamy Wash & Doxycycline Combo

    The Doxy that my doctor prescribed is 100mg. I couldn't believe how inexpensive they were so at least if it works I can afford it. That's a big plus.

    So far, the wash seems to be drying things up pretty good but I've only been taking the Doxycycline for almost a week and I suppose it will be a month or so before it really gets into my system and starts really working.

    I've heard that once you stop taking the Doxycyline that your acne will come back sometimes worse than before. Is this true?

    Thanks for the reply Blue.

    its a toss up soul astray, if your acne will come back or not. some people have taken it for 6 months or longer and stopped with no new acne coming back. some people who stop it comes back bigger and badder than ever. you should start noticing a reduction in redness and general clearing up after about 10 days. good luck!
