My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
We should have a proper diagnosis first,that will justify the reason for starting a drug.Doxycycline is used for lid margin infections.Take it for 5days and then reassess.If you are much better then it can be continued for another 3 to 5 days otherwise change in medication is called for..
Any further Query in this regard, please do get back to me.
