Take Antibiotics For The Treatment Of Acne?
good afternoon I have pimples on my scalp, before I took doxicor antibiotics because this drug came from Indonesia and I was abroad, is this doxycycline the same as doxicor?
Hello AndyH, Thank you for the question.
Do you take these drugs as prescribed by the doctor? Acne can happen to anyone and can occur in any part of the body. Acne appears because hair follicles are blocked by skin oil and dead skin which is then followed by a bacterial infection. This condition is characterized by the appearance of red spots on the skin, including the scalp.
Acne treatment depends on the severity, which can be a cream containing benzoyl peroxide, retinoids, antibiotic ointments, antibiotic tablets, or hormone therapy. Doxycycline is an antibiotic tablet that is usually used to treat acne, however, the use of this drug should be in accordance with the doctor's recommendations. Doxicor is a trademark of drugs with the same ingredients.
Please take this medicine according to doctor's advice. Avoid using this drug if this drug is not on the doctor's advice; You should consult with a dermatologist so that you get the right treatment. Feel free to wash your hair regularly using a gentle shampoo. Don't try to solve this zit.
