My daughter is taking Doryx (doxycycline) for her complexion and like most acne meds, it causes your skin to be sensitive to the sun and you can burn very easily. It doesnt say you cant swim but does advise that you be covered in sunscreen. She did do the sunscreen, but even at that her face is burnt, her hands and feet are burnt and shes miserable. She cant even get in the sun just to walk from the house to the store and just live normally. Shes now not wanting to take her medication and its not necessary for her to live or anything, but its what the dermatologist gave her. Shes refusing to take it and wants to try proactiv. Anyone ever ditched the acne meds for proactiv? or taken meds that did this? Im at a loss on how to help her overcome this obstacle because her skin is so sensitive, but she doesnt like the breakouts either. Its like a catch22. Help~Answer Question
