Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is difficult to conclude from your description.
Probably is a severe form of acne? Is your face free?
Doxycycline is generally given for skin infection / acne.

The best option is to see a Dermatologist There is a choice of excellent drugs depending on the diagnosis. (like Tretinoin for acne - which need medical supervision)

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
