Patient : Hi I'm currently travelling though Thailand and I stated taking doxycycline 100mg tablets daily from day one as an anti malaria medication. Though after two weeks of use I stated getting acne like rash whenever I consumes alcohol on my face arms and upper body. I stopped taking the tablets immediately but today a week later I had the same problem but less severe today. I was wondering now it if was the tablets that we're causing this rash in the first place or is there something else that I may have picked up that could cause such a rash?
