    Finacea-Symptoms worse before better?

    I had a derm appt last week for mild/moderate acne that I have had for the past year. My derm prescribed finacea twice a day, 100 mg Doryx once a day and to wash with a Triaz 3% pad at night. My face has gone totally haywire and is now broken out in places where I never had any problems. It is a mess!!
    Does anyone have any experiences with these products making their acne worse? I am wondering if it may be the finacea? My doctor said my acne shouldn't get worse before better.. and it would take about a month to show improvement. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Please be careful with the Triaz pads. My son also did not have severe acne. I inadvertantly touched his pads while cleaning up, and wound up in the emergency room with heart trouble.

    Hey,there. I've been on the Finacea for about a year now and it has never made me break out more... not sure what the cause would be for you. I've never used the Triaz 3% pads or Doryx. I HAVE used the Triaz face wash...which for me, did little to nothing. Right now I'm on Tazorac, Paula's Choice BHA 2% liquid and the Finacea. Since I've added the BHA it seems that the Taz works much better! Good Luck to you and let us know what made you break out when you figure it out. Kym

    KathrynB, do you have acne and rosacea.
    Or you just have acne on your face.
