Hey guys smile recently been diagnosed with PCOS and have been put on Lymecycline to manage acne symptoms, does anyone have experience with this?
If so did the antibiotics help?
Thanks xxx

Hey I had bad acne not pcos tho but I used the antibiotic oxytetracycline for roughly 2 years then it stopped working, I got referred to dermatologist and got put on roacutane for 7 months and it took my acne away completely! I've been of roacutane for over s year now and my skin is still clear! Honestly the best thing I ever done was take that, I had suffered really bad cystic acne, scarring painfull spots for nearly 10 years! Xx

I have been on that antibiotic for my Rosacea and it was brilliant . Took about a month to show results .

Thanks guys. It's been a few weeks but seems the same so far :/ hopefully I'll see an Improvement soon. I don't think people realise that it's painful as well as making you self conscious sad xx
