  • Doxycycline and Topical Metronidazole gel? Advice!

    Alright so about 10 days ago I laid out in the sun 3 days in a row without sunscreen (such regrets) and afterwards, experienced what seemed to look like a burnt face with tiny little bumps forming all over my cheeks. I gave it a week before I came to the conclusion that I was definitely not just "burnt". Everything irritated my skin and made it extremely red/more inflamed.. even the gentlest cleansers, taking a warm shower, getting hot in general, etc. My mom told me it looked like rosacea so I made a derm appointment and was given a 10 day course of 100mg (twice a day) doxycycline and topical metronidazole gel yesterday.

    Has anyone had this same prescription and seen results? I've had my skin troubles in the past but have been clear for years now. Idk what is happening! It seemed to have been directly linked to the sun. I have some pictures of what was going on in a previous thread if you click on my profile.

    Thank you!
