I think I’m battling a stubborn case of perioral dermatitis, an irritation around my lips. Topical treatments are not helping so my dermatologist, who knows I have UC, prescribed me low dose doxycycline for a month.
Long before I was diagnosed, I had some mucous and other IBS type symptoms, but only a year after I had taken a combo of doxycycline and amoxicillin for a few months did my UC flare and begin bleeding. I’ve been in remission since starting Lialda.
Think I should suspect doxy enough to refuse taking it or trust that now I’m under treatment? Not sure what else to do. I really want my facial burning to go away. I will ask my GI his opinion but I’m curious if anyone has much experience with doxy.
