ok. so yes, testosterone replacement can increase acne for a short period of time.

You can either use topical cleansers, benzoyl peroxide or if your doctor has already prescribed the doxycycline, you can use the doxycycline for 1 month and then stop and see if that helps your acne.

Does that answer your question?

the acne stays active during the whole effect of the testosterone injection? Or just a few weeks in the beginning?

Usually the acne should occur for the first month or so, but with your formulation of testosterone, you might notice the acne last a little longer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
