Hello I'm Dr Chip
Could you please post a photo for me on this page?
How long were you on the doxycycline?
At this point I would prescribe you isotretinoin capsules--20 mg to be taken daily for a month
That should clear this up for you
So ask your doctor about that
Please let me know if you need any more information
No, not an antibiotic
It's a synthetic kind of vitamin A preparation
But I've seen it work wonders with your kind of rosacea
Usually that's just about how long it takes for the full effect--not just to see if it works
